Hello All,

Feedback time.
And just to keep the story short, after consulting a friend, a vet herself, she advised me to check his teeth again and gave me a good reference.
So that good referenced vet came to see my horses teeth and surprise surprise!, bad job done last time! And I had already asked the "butcher" to come check them again and he said they were fine.

So, teeth "done" again this evening, let's hope for the best.

Oh, he has a lot of blisters in the back of his mouth, outside his molars. :(

So it's mouthwash to take care of it and lots off grass!

That sounds very positive so hopefully you're on track again
I don't know if your pony is small but we had a horse dentist out twice to an 11.2 of our sons and the man had always done a really good job of our other horses and kept saying nothing wrong with her but I could smell her mouth was really bad and so got a vet out and he put a gag on her and actually knelt down so he could really get a good look inside and she had a very bad abscess - soon cleared up with right treatment and filing of offending sharp edges
Good luck with your oldie
