haha drugged horse

well Sonny got his teeth floated today and it went well!!
It was kinda funny because he had two horses go before him, and the whole time he was all calm and quiet....and we all kept joking saying that he's pretending to be drugged to fool the dentist that he already did him.

Anyways, Sonny behaved wonderful and gosh his neck is HEAVVVVY!!

The dentist was awesome and was super nice. He showed me the parts that he filed down, before and after.....I even got to stick my arm in his mouth to feel his back teeth!!!!

After the dentist was done I did the lovely part that all gelding owners enjoy doing :roll: ......sheath cleaning.
Since he was drugged it was easy to finish it quickly (he's fine with it without drugs, he just perfers to try to walk while I do it lol) and now he feels all clean hehe.

Then afterwards I let one of the girls at the barn ride Sonny for like 5 minutes (would have been longer but parents came and I had to leave. She said she loved Sonny's gaits!!!! heheh and called me spoiled because Sonny had such comfortable gaits lol

Before the dentist appointment, we had a Parelli lesson which went extremely well. We did alot of work on three of the Parelli games, and things went fairly well.
We had a good time in that lesson........or at least I did hehe

Sadly I did not get any videos or pictures of my drugged horse today, but I soooo wish I did!!!

How brilliant. What a good time to clean a sheath. I don't think I would have thought of that myself. Glad to hear he is doing better with his teeth. Good for you for keeping on top of things, if only more people would do that.

the hardest part for me was lifting up and holding his big heavy neck while the dentist floated his teeth.....I fell off of him the previous day and landed on my right wrist and both my shoulders (no idea how lol) so I was pretty stiff and sore that day.

He said all in all Sonny's teeth were fine....a few hooks/ramps (same thing but the hooks are on the top teeth and ramps are the name for ones on the bottom), but other than that he was fine.

Originally I was going to have the vet do it, but decided not to since everyone was having a dentist come to do their horses...so I told them to add Sonny to the list. The guy was extremely pleasant to be around.

Oooooh and the last horse that got his teeth floated was a 19 year old Clyds, but OMG he was growling (yes....growling) and making all types of weird noises (growling, snoring, moaning) while the dentist was floating his teeth!!!! It was SOOOOOOOOOO funnnnnny!!

Whe the dentists was at our barn she actually had something to keep the head up. It was like something you would see at the hospital...

I love it when they get their teeth done for that reason. They're so cute and groggy after. xD

I remember a few years ago the dentist was going to a friend of ours house so we brought Sunny and Montana over there to get it done. I had to hold both of them when they were finished and I sat on a bucket, a horse on either side, both with their muzzles resting on each of my legs, drooling away. xD Sunny actually blood-stained my pants a little bit. I was trying to eat my nacho belle grande and Montana would come alive every once in awhile and try to get some lol
