Arrow Two Questions For You!

Hello, I have two questions for you guys!

1.) What does it mean when a horses nose is always cold.
Even in the summer, all the time my horse's nose is always cold. It is right where the noseband of a bridle or halter would set on her. It is not after work, certain times of day, etc. and all of her bridles and halters properly fit her. What could this mean?

2.) Equine Dental Care? I don't want my horse's teeth to get bad over time. They are reguraly floated, but what can I do for my horse so that her teeth don't look gross. I know she is a 'horse' but there must be something I can do.

Thank you!

I don't know about the cold nose thing, if everything else is normal, then it's normal, don't worry about it. As for the teeth, they is how they look and you can't do a darn thing about it as it would damage the protective coating. I remember a trick pony that performed for groups & such, he would smile & fold his top lip up, they had veneers made up for him, of course this would be very expensive, and not practical in your situation. So just accept your horse the way he is.

Thank you! But I do accept her, I just don't want her teeth to fall out when she gets older.

I did have a dentist suggest if there's a lot of buildup food etc you can scrape it from between the teeth.

Dont feed sweet feed or too many sugar cubes or sugary peppermints and her teeth will be a lot healthier.

She is on pelleted with 12% protien and 5 treats per day that are cartalige builders. No supplements. No suger cubes hardly ever and peppermints only at Christmas time. Thank you.

Brush her teeth!

I test-rode a horse that had to have his teeth brushed after every ride. He had some nice looking teeth.....

You could invest in this

Equident - The Equine Toothbrush

Or this

'Toothbrush' Mouth Spray 'Toothbrush' Mouth Spray Products Model: Price: $24.95 : Clean Horse

But you may just decide that these are yet more clever people inventing stuff to part hard up horse owners from their cash, we are hard up because of all the must have products that people keep inventing.

If a horse has a natural diet with limited sugar, such as sweetfeed or sugary treats then there should not be to much of an issue with teeth problems. If it is a purely cosmetic thing, well heck it is half of their charm
