Mini Molars

 We had a lovely work out this morning along a quiet road.  Bandit is
still not perfect in the hind end.  I think it might be the mud.  This is
always a problems as soon as we get rain, but the ground water is
suffering still from this summer's drought so we must appreciate the rain.
 The farrier was explaining about the muls foot on Bandit's right front,
so the next pair of shoes will be a hind show on the right front as they
are narrower.  I refrained from pointing out that the last farrier had put
a hind shoe on this front foot and this farrier did not understand the
problem. I try to ignore all this important information and focus on what
is keeping the horse sound.
  My friend has explained that she had a four year old mini with severe
molar problems and the correction would have cost four thoussand  dollars.
conservative treatment was not effective and she had to euthanixe the
horse as the upper mandible tas starting to deteriorate from the
treatment.
  Buddy was eating well today and seems to have no jaw swelling, so we did
our usual exercise routine.
