LOL! How long have you had her---for almost two months it was almost a daily thing to go out and bring Ice in and oh look, there's something else wrong with him! He would injure himself in his stall, on the fence, get injured by other horses, injure other horses....he even stabbed himself in the nostril with a stick.
He taught me more about first aid in our first three months of being together than I had learned previously in my five years of riding--and that was at a for-hire trail riding barn with 20+horses, most of whom were rescues carrying around novice riders and/or small children.
Luckily though, mouths usually heal pretty fast without much interference from people. Just watch it and make sure it doesn't get more swollen or start oozing puss or something like that....and maybe wet her hay so the stalks don't stab her?
