Wonderful! Don't see this often at all.
I wouldn't want to venture anywhere near a horse's mouth OR the other end for that matter.
He'd better watch those fingers.
I wouldn't either! But I'm glad someone is willing to. I wonder if they sedate them for dental work the way they do dogs and cats?
I've to call him for me !;-)Pierre
That must be quite a job!
I didn't know that, it's very interesting! Now I know the reason "your horses" have such a bright smile! :)Léia
Everyone does need a dentist!
do horses floss?
They must pack big pliers!
Horses teeth keep growing and they have to be filed down so they can eat comfortably. They call it floating the teeth. Not fun to do or to watch either. We have not climbed up that big rock in my post from yesterday. We aren't that adventurous. I hear there is an eagles nest up there.
Funny you picture this. that is what Kylee wants to be---A horse tooth doc. MB
I knew my sister would know about this profession. She is the horse expert in this family.
publicite roulante ;o)
I'm guessing the horse gets some sort of sedation before the doc goes to work? On a much smaller scale, we were "custodians" for a dog belonging to Guide Dogs for the Blind. We were surprised when they told us we were expected to brush her teeth daily but it became a much loved ritual. She eventually had a root canal and a crown after she broke a tooth on a Nylabone. I was surprised to discover the whole specialty of canine dentistry. Animals need healthy teeth, too. (We brush our current dog's teeth - he sulks if it doesn't happen.)
I never thought about horses needing a dentist but I guess it makes sense since I've had to have dog and cat dentistry done on pets over the years.
Now that's a specialized field, Lowell.
It's not my job, thank goodness!!
