Visiting the Horse Dentist


I was a good boy for the dentist, and I didn't even get a lollipop. What is up with that?

Horse at dentist just after sedative

Here I am just after getting my sedative. Okay, so I am a light weight when it comes to drugs. One shot and I could hardly stand, I couldn't figure out what to do with my hind feet. The DOR thought I was going to sit down or fall over, it looked like I would for a minute or two. The dentist assured both of us he had never seen that happen. I am not sure why we would believe him, his version of a greeting was putting his hand in my mouth up to the middle of his forearm while I was standing outside in the paddock, I don't think he has learned his manners.

Horse mouth inspection

So here I am getting my mouth inspected. Dakota took this picture, he thinks the glow around the dentist makes him look like an angel-whatever, that is not what I was thinking. Hey, wait I was stoned and thinking about clover, alfalfa, apple asses, and pretty mares.

@Cactus, it’s good to hear from you again. I don’t really care for dental visits. I don’t get a shot like yours. I only get a shot in the mouth and then my tongue goes numb and I can’t speak very well. The dentist doesn’t grind my teeth, but he does fill, cap, and pull them out. I try to keep my teeth brushed and flossed so I can keep my teeth to a ripe old age. Sorry to say that my Dad didn’t do that and at 55 his teeth were history. Have a great day in pasture.
