I just want to reitterate what I said in my original post: she is NOT dropping feed or losing weight. She is NOT negative when being ridden (does not pin ears, swish tail, tense up, anything). She does not appear to be in any pain - I suppose she could be, but it is not obvious is she is. She simply grinds on the bit every few minutes and does a lot of pushing on and leaning on the bit.
On a second note, I love my horses, and make sure they are well cared for, BUT, I am not flying someone up to Alaska to work on teeth that may or may not need anything done. At some point, if there was enough interest in the community, it might be possible, but that is just not realistic for an individual to do.
I will go read that article now... :)
