So Champ, my 7 year old QH gelding, was having some issues when I was trying to ride him the other day. He was throwing his head A LOT and seemed pretty uncomfortable all around. I didn't trust myself to know that everything was fine and that he was just acting up so I had someone come out to take a look that was a lot more experienced then I am. He said that Champ still has his "wolf teeth" and that may be why having a bit in his mouth seems to just totally piss him off. He is also seriously in need of having his teeth floated. So now someone is coming out some time this week to extract them and supposedly this will make a huge difference in his attitude when I'm trying to ride. Does anyone have any experience in this? Why does he still have these teeth if they cause so much pain? How much does this normally cost and what is the "recovery time" for something like this?
