Possible teeth problems?
Today, I was riding my mare around and she was being her stubborn self because she'd rather eat grass...nothing a lead rope to the flank doesn't fix lol. Well she was trotting and I asked her to tuck in her nose which she was doing fine. But after a while she would put her head way down and tuck her nose waaay in, like with her head almost between her legs. Well I stopped her and asked her to bring her nose to her shoulder, then I went to turn her around and she tried to bite my foot. She did this for quite awhile. And she would keep opening her mouth and putting her head down and also when I asked her to turn left, sometime she would other times she'd side step to the right with her head tilted to the left, same for the right. I'm not sure what the problem was.
I was think maybe her mouth is sore. Because yesterday I had a guy out (my boyfriends step grandpa) who thinks the way to train a horse is the rough fear not respect type of thing...not what I want and he just hauled on her mouth quite a bit. Could that make it sore? (My boyfriend got on his butt called him a bad word..yata yata that's for a different story lol) anyway, I also rubbed my finger in her moth and felt around, and on the left side, on the top of her mouth she had what feels like a point covered by some gum..maybe a tooth? But I'm not positive..any suggestions?
