Twister's dental work

Twister gets his teeth floated
I can never get enough of watching the horses get their teeth floated by the equine dentist. Just enough sedation makes them so agreeable they'll let you do just about anything. There is always some serious rasping of the teeth noise during these visits and you KNOW it's really loud inside their heads! Just a few minutes before this photo was taken, Twister was pounding on the wall of the stall to get out, patience not being his best virtue. Without sedation, just the squirt of a fly spray bottle (Karen's [not pictured here]pet peeve) or the sudden movement of a plastic bag on a windy day (Twister's peeve) can sometimes send them into hysterics!
...go figure
