Surprise, there WAS an issue with the teeth.
Annual power float at the farm.
Well, miss Gray Mare didn’t speak of any problems, until very recently… This time the vet found she had developed more sharp points, or excessive transverse ridges, in more areas, and on BOTH sides. Sore areas in the cheeks far up in the mouth, and this time also up in the front.
All fixed up now, and she’ll definitely be on the Frequent Flyer dental care routine. For as easy as she is, guess she has to be high maintenance with something.
Also felt good to get confirmation on my assessment of a small mouth and the need for a very thin bit – there’s really not much room in there at all for a bit.
She’ll be feeling a LOT better without entire rows of teeth cutting in to her cheeks with each chewing motion!
Sweet girl, dealing with all that and still never, ever, trying to get her rider off.
Ending the day with a gelding who’s taken his dental problem to a whole new level. Not for the squeamish!
