Find out what happens when the pony dentist visits Shetland Pony Club

Did you know that horses and ponies need to go to the pony dentist?  Well a pony needs to look after his teeth in the same way as we do.

Ponies eat tough grasses which can wear down their teeth quickly.  So, they cope with this by having teeth that grow throughout their lives. This means that their teeth don’t wear away and ponies can always manage to eat and grind up tough grasses and digest them.

Sometimes ponies’ teeth do not wear down evenly and the pony dentist can check their teeth to make sure that they can eat easily.

The good news for the Shetland ponies is that the pony dentist comes to them.

He keeps a record of their teeth so that he can see any changes over time and make sure that the Shetland ponies stay healthy.

Do the Shetlands like the pony dentist’s visit?  Does it hurt them?
