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.

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.
