    We got a pony a few hours ago from a home that she wasn't properly cared for and we plan to give her the life and love she deserves. We were told she was 20 but her teeth don't look like it to us? What would you say?

    Back in 2008 I got my welsh haflinger cross pony. Her DOB is unknown and her papers I received when I got her stated they guessed she was born in 1998 (making her 20 now). Within the past 10 years we have had multiple dentists, vets, and trainers give us their opinion on her age based off her...

    Has anyone used or know anyone who's used HealthyMouth. It something you put in your horses/dogs/cats water and it's supposed to reduce plaque. I'm not looking to use it but am doing research on it for a class. Any experience would be helpful. https://www.healthymouth.com/

    Hi :) We have a rescue horse, Chance, who's super sweet but not without his issues :) Anyway, we had heard that he's about 8 years old, but after looking at his teeth, I tend to think he's older....what age would you put him? I hope they didn't lie too much !!! Lisa:-?

    I recently purchased a horse from a kill pen and was wondering how old she is. I'm terrible at guessing ages so what are your opinions? EDIT: How do I add a picture? I apologize for my incompetence.

    Hi everyone! This is my first post here. I rescued this precious mare from a nearby kill lot and there is no information on her at all. The lot estimated her to be 14-16 years of age. My horse knowledgeable friends and farrier are all over the place on their guesses. Care to take a guess...

    Generally how long does it take for a sedative to wear off after a float? I have to walk my horse to the vets get his teeth done, I am truck and trailor-less at the moment, and I'm not paying $45 dollars for the vet to come out (the drive would take two minutes). Walking him would take...

    Lately my horse has decided that he was going to do his own thing and ignore what I ask of him under saddle, especially if it involves turning to the right, or even going forward at all in certain parts of the arena and pasture. acting up is very very unlike him. I decided to rule in/out any...

    I just wanted to tell people to have horses teeth checked out! if they are showing any signs of pain or resistance or anything like that! my new guy wouldn't collect or let his nose to be touched i though it was him being a pain and the last people threw a nose band on him to keep his mouth shut...

    Hi! I've owned my pony Arrow for a while now, and his owners told us he was around ten, but we're planning on having the equine dentist out soon to tell us if this is true because, quite frankly, I think he's a bit younger than that. I was checking out his teeth today, and they're pearly whites...

    My new boy, a 20 yo QH gelding, has a habit of when I'm hand grazing him (or I think even outside too) he gets a very snotty nose. It's usually a clear/white. Is this normal? He will also grab on to a bunch of grass, start to chew and then let a bunch of it fall out. He is getting his teeth done...

    Is there a chart or a list which says at about what age every pair of permanent teeth come out? My horse is being a little monster and I am hoping it is his 'new' permanent teeth hurting him and nothing worse than that. He's three years and nine months and was quite wild and scary about two or...

    Hello everyone, so excited to join the community. I got to wondering earlier how one would go about introducing a horse to dental gear? Is it like introducing a horse to a bit? Is there even a process? Just Curious - Thanks :-)

    My horse "Charlie" Just got his teeth done for his first time in his life, he is 12 and a OTTB I bought him last year around.. February. When the dentist looked at him he said he had 2 large hooks in his mouth. He drilled them down a little but is comming back in 6 months to finnish them. I use...

    I am looking at this horse and I'm not exactly an expert on guessing age by looking at the teeth. I was told that the horse is maybe 14 at oldest. I have an inkling, but maybe she's older? She's a STB but I cannot read her tattoo by any means. Bonus points if you can at least figure out the...

    Ive had my appendix mare for almost a year now but she's recently become extremely moody in her stall and in the cross ties. She has been constantly grinding her teeth and pinning her ears, especially if the horse beside her puts his head out of his stall or if another horse walks by. Even when...

    Please excuse me if this is the wrong thread, I'm new here. Lol! I just recently rescued a 2 year old paint stud colt, we have started his training and today he finally conquered lunging. He has not been started under saddle and he has never had a bit put in his mouth. So my question was that...

    Hello, I have two questions for you guys! 1.) What does it mean when a horses nose is always cold. Even in the summer, all the time my horse's nose is always cold. It is right where the noseband of a bridle or halter would set on her. It is not after work, certain times of day, etc. and all of...
