Horses get baby teeth just like us, lose them, and then grow their adult teeth. The only difference is that adult horse teeth keep on growing! Oral care is very important to keep them healthy. These adult teeth need to be floated (filed down) and checked once a year to keep the angle good for eating. Also, bad teeth are pulled if necessary. Dominique recently had his first visit from Lars Curley, our horse dentist! He is the best dentist and all of our horses like him because he is kind and understands them, especially if they are scared.
Lars shows Dominique the tool he will use for his teeth.
Dominique is very interested as he watches Lars float Rue Martel’s teeth
