Even if funds are tight, I would have the vet out to look at both of them, starting with the teeth.

One of my horses was fine when he was checked in late spring but, by Fall he had hooks on his molars to where he was quidding more than half his hay and losing weight. He could eat from the grain pan just fine but the hay got caught on the hooks of the molars when he tried to swallow

Perish the thought either of these horses might colic, the vet bill now, as a preventative, would be much better than a colic vet bill. Both financially and emotionally.

we dont go throught our vets for teeth, we go through a horse dentist but he goes to the race tracks and other highend stables in the US. so when he gets back he is coming back. its lees stress for them then hauling them to the vet , getting drugged, worked on, hauled home, he comes out and then waits till they wake up from the drugs.

i know how much colic bills cost, my moms horse coliced last winter.

I feed about 2-3 oz with his evening grain- I just pour it over and stir it a little so it doesn't just sink to the bottom. As a bonus, it helps the powdered supplements (like U-Gard) stick better so my horse can't filter it out and leave it in the bucket
