Doctor Deb came out to check all the Minis teeth and Shawnee’s. They all needed floating. Doc Deb uses a float which is a file that will remove the sharp hooks in their back teeth.
Mary was the best behaved. I do believe it was because Joseph was supporting her on one side and Gary aka Papa or Dad was supporting her on the other side.
Shawnee got a little aggressive, but Doc Deb let her know she was in charge.
Same with Patty. Doc Deb had to be Bossmare. Sometimes you just have to become a member of the herd.
All the others did fine. It’s scary when someone they do not know comes up with a big silver stick and wants to put it in their mouths. As prey animals their response is flight.
Doctor Deb tries not to use medication to calm the horses.
