Floating means to smooth or contour your horse's teeth with a file (called a "float"). Unlike our own teeth, your horse's teeth keep growing. At times, a horse's teeth may develop sharp edges, making it difficult for him/her to chew food, hold a bit, or simply have pain and discomfort inside his/her mouth. The vet will carefully file all your horse's teeth that need smoothing to achieve a flat grinding surface between the upper and lower teeth.

Is a broodmare basically used for breeding? Are broodmares often time broke to ride?

Another question is, how many different variations of being 'broke' are there? Like Green Broke, Dead Broke, and what exactly do they entail?

Difference between sorrel and chestnut, chesnut is more red based while sorrel is more dull.

yeah, I totally see that now. Thanks harlee.


Moxie: yes, broodmares are generally used only for breeding purposes. Alot of time they are mares that excelled in a discipline, and retire as broodmares. Every once in a while i've come upon broodmares that have never been broke to ride, but have outstanding confirmation, therefore they were only used for breeding purposes. I think it really depends on the breeding program.

Is 'Clyde' another name for a Shire horse? I've spotted that around and Google hasn't been helpful.

They are just different breeds of the Draught horse
I believe its just short for Clydesdale. Heres a very basic description
