Getting your horses teeth floated
Have you ever wondered if your horse's teeth need floated?Have you ever heard the old saying 'Long in the tooth'? There is a reason for that saying when speaking of horses.
A horse's teeth are constantly growing throughout their entire life span. Hence, the saying, 'Long in the Tooth'.
A horse grazes and eats continuously, they are eating machines. As a result the grinding surface of the teeth wear down over time but they do not always wear evenly, which would be wonderful.
Uneven wear on the grinding surfaces of the horses teeth and may result in hooks or sharp points that will cause considerable pain and discomfort to your horse.
Many horse owners seem to forget about the horses mouth hygiene until the horse goes off his feed.
If your horse seems hesitant when it is feeding time or feed drops from the horses mouth you may need to have your horses teeth checked for sharp points in his mouth or uneven wearing of his teeth which will hinder his eating habits.
Some horses become difficult to bit-up, chewing constantly on the bit and tossing their heads; this is usually a sign of a toothproblem.
Your veterinarian will examine your horse's teeth and mouth for any problems. They may just need floated (this is when the vet removes any hooks from the horse's mouth and smooth out any rough or uneven edges with his file). After the vet has corrected the horse's teeth you will see an immense difference in his eating habits.
You should have your horses teeth and mouth checked once a year. Make it part of your horses yearly check-up for optimum horse health.

When it comes to maintaining your good health, even when we try to eat well, we're still disadvantaged…
The nutritional content of most food has been compromised over the years, not only by deficient soils and modern production, transportation, storage and processing methods, but also by the enormous amounts of chemical and artificial substances added to promote growth, storage life, taste and appearance.
It's for this reason that more and more medical authorities are advocating the use of vitamin and mineral supplements. However, finding them in the right combination can be both confusing and costly.
The best nutrition products I know of make use of knowledge gained from the botanical world's 6,000 year history. They incorporated health building nutritional herbs with the best modern technology to help our bodies cleanse and detoxify so that the cells - the tiniest living units - can be as fully nourished as possible.
This allows the cells to grow, repair and to perform their functions with the best possible efficiency so that we feel and look better and are more able to prevent and fight disease. Once the body begins to clear itself of toxins it can more efficiently absorb nutrition.
