Just a few short clips of how I handle horses during treatment, I have the headcollar around the neck, work with the horse and try to get them to relax as much as possible, sometimes easier said than done!
I ALWAYS HOLD THE GAG WHEN HOLDING THE TONGUE SO IT IS NOT STRAINED WHEN THE HORSE MOVES
THE HORSES USUALLY LIFT THEIR HEADS DURING TREATMENT AND ARE NOT FORCED INTO ANY ONE POSITION
I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT WOLF TEETH SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM BITTED HORSES
THIS HORSE WAS HEAD SHY BEFORE TREATMENT AND IT'S TEETH WERE NOT PARTICULARLY SHARP BUT STILL RESULTED IN A LARGE INFECTED ULCER
THIS WAS FOUND IN PLUMP 12 YEAR OLD QUIET RIDING SCHOOL PONY HIS CHEEK WAS SEVERELY ULCERATED AND THE CORESPONDING GAP BELOW THE STEP WAS INFECTED DUE TO POCKETING OF TRAPPED FEED
EXTRA LARGE TEETH, THIS HORSE WAS A REALLY GOOD DOOER!
