Polka Dot Ponies

This will most likely be just a collection of my ramblings. I ride and train horses, so there is bound to be a lot of horse stuff. But I also just like to vent and this seems the perfect place.

Horse Surgery- Messy Business

I forgot to post last night about Titan's surgery. It went very well and hopefully we have managed to save the 2 front teeth (though we had to pull one). Also the damage to his jaw was not as bad as originally thought- though the vet still had to drill into my baby's jaw and wire it together. The wire should be able to come out in a month or so and then it is just a waiting game. We won't know until he is about 5 if his adult teeth will come in correctly or not. So we may have to do some more 'fixing' somewhere down the line. But at least for now he is comfortable and eating well.
PS If you ever help with oral surgery on a horse- wear clothes you don't mind getting bloody.
