Example of what I mean- My gelding needs his floated every six months to a year. My mare hasnt had hers done in four years and last time she had them done there really wasnt anything to do according to the vet and I've checked her mouth also and her teeth are great. (her jaw moves perfect no hooks no uneven wear, and yes I do know what im looking for)
My BF's mare has never seen a dentist and neither has my friends mare. I also have a friend who takes her gelding in every other year to get some minor hooks knocked off.
So my question is what is everyones opinion? Do horses HAVE to go to the denist? Or if their teeth wear nice on their own should you leave it be an not spend the $150 it takes to have it done?
To be honest I have to save money where ever I can. So since Romeo has to have his done on a regular basis ill spend the money but if Bause wears hers fine and has no issues I wont spend the extra money.
Opinions? (also im not looking for critisism on not have my mares teeth floated regularly im looking for friendly opinions on what others do about their horses teeth )
