So I trailered her to a different vet than the one I generally use. The previous vet seems to be getting lazy about doing teeth. The last time he was here he was done in twenty minutes which I wasn't happy about.
The vet we went to has stocks and all the equipment set up. She spent probably an hour fixing her teeth. Nothing was loose but she definitely had sharp points. I told her my mare was probably 21 or 22 yrs old. She thinks it's more likely she is 25 or 26 but said thoroughbreds are known for having bad teeth.
I'm hoping Desy will be feeling better soon. She is still sore tonight. Not too enthused about her hay. I got a really good deal on grain. The feed store had 50 percent off of grain. She used to only get a handful. I've been slowly upping her grain. She still eats hay but it takes her a lot longer to finish. She absolutely loves her alfalfa pellets!
I'll see if she feels any better in the next few days.
The vet said she looks fabulous for her age. Honestly I was crushed she said Desy is so much older than I thought. I was hoping we would have many more years together. Although if she is older it certainly explains why her arthritis is so bad.
