Horse dentist
[Return to Topics]

Heard various stories about horse dentists and how teeth needed floated when they got old. Well my 14, yr old mare recently flipped out when I tacked her up. First time in months because of too much rainy weather. She threw her head all over. Couldn't under stand it. A wise friend suggested I call an equine dentist. Big Biker looking, tattooed character showed up. He put a special halter on her that held her mouth open. I was amazed at what he showed me. Poor mare had sharp hooks on her backteeth (molars) that were pushed against her cheeks when she had the bit in her mouth and they actually cut the inside of her cheeks a little. I feel so bad for not having her teeth done before. This guy was so patient and kind with the animals. We had him check out all the older horses and pull the wolf teeth on our three yr old filly. He even put me in touch with the local jousting club.

Just goes to show you can't judge a book by its cover.

my experience has been that big burley biker types are generally soft hearted inside, anyway.
I guess what I anticipated for an equine dentist was more of a nerd, weenie type individual.
