Horse Teeth

Friday I spent more $$ on my horse's teeth than i have on my own. Isn't that the way it is for most horse owners? Money for them but not for us?
This is the problem Blue had, a downward hook in front and an upward hook waaaaayyy in the back. This locked his jaw in place and made it difficult for him to eat. My vet Randy Bean, said it also probably gave him a headache as this condition causes cluster headaches in people.

Now this photo isn't Blue, I kinda had my hands full steadying his head. But it shows the hooks and how difficult it is to take care of them. With all of this he was still not showing the classic symptoms of tooth problems. He is just a tough guy!
