How Do You Know: Teeth Floating
Forgive me, we're new to horse ownership.
How do you know when to call an equine dentist to get a horse's teeth floated?
We've owned our mare since April 2012 (we leased her from September 2011 - April 2012). She has not had her teeth floated in this time. The previous owner did have it done while she was at our barn...but my BO does not remember the date.
So my questions:
- what are signs/behaviors a horse exhibits when it's teeth are bothering her?
- how often should I anticipate getting this done?
Acey is a pleasure QH. She is ridden by my 9 year old in play days, open shows (English flat work, rail, Showmansip, WP), and on trail rides. She is pasture boarded, free fed hay, and gets two scoops of 14% grain daily (I think).
Thank you for your help!
