Do horses of age five and younger need their teeth floated?
So many people have told me that younger horses ( six and under ) need their teeth floated sooner then older horses. I just recieved my horse in October of 09 and I don't know when her teeth were last done. She's five years old. I called the vet ( my new vet ) and asked for a price estimate of how much he charges to float my horses teeth, though, of course, I added more detail.
In summary he made me feel like a complete idiot. He was saying that a horse who's around five years and younger don't need their teeth floated because that's the age where they lose their baby teeth and get their 'adult teeth'.
Around what age do horses need their teeth floated for the first time?
