Tomorrow the horse dentist comes

When horses get dental care in the form of smoothing of the sharp worn teeth its called floating the teeth. My old mare Twig gets her teeth done tomorrow. She is in her 20s and having a little trouble masticating her hay. Dental floats are in fact files that the dentist uses to even the chewing surfaces. Ken is also going to do the neighbors 30 year old donkey, Fern.
