Tooth Woes and A Pony Show

Oh, dearie has been two weeks since Part I of Salem's Extreme Makeover! Pics will be taken as soon as I am out at the barn with the following:
a.) Camera
b.) Enough sunlight to both take pics and ride
c.) A Helpful Horse Holder

Salem is looking quite sharp these days, so I hope to share that with everyone soon.

In other Salem News, he finally got his teeth floated yesterday. Boy, was his poor little mouth a mess! I don't have the paper in front of me now, but the equine dentist circled/checked a whole laundry list of issues that were going on in the Ponykins' Mouth. He said Salem had not been floated in a very long time (if ever). This explains why he opens his mouth constantly while being ridden. I feel horrible that my riding has been causing him pain, but I am also glad that I didn't just strap a flash on him and call it a day.

To keep you all entertained, here is a hilarious Ponies video done by Jennifer Saunders (from Absolutely Fabulous) and Dawn French (from The Vicar of Dibley) --

Dera Frizzle, Thanks for reading my blog and leaving a comment about the White Lightening. I am going to look it up right away. I think the gas hoof chamber sounds very funny and interesting. I wonder if my horse guy has heard about it. I am pretty sure that my horse would tolerate the bag on her foot, even for 45 minutes. Thanks again!
PS Loved the Ponies video. Hilarious.

Again, I have to say I can't hardly watch those pony videos without almost peeing my pants. They are sooo funny. Just thinking about them makes me snort out a laugh!
