|Proving again that the truth is stranger than fiction...
I’ll be picking out a specific case out of the hundreds
I’ve worked on in the past years and give you a brief
rendition of the facts and outcome. And, I may cover pertinent equine related topics.

that didn’t happen to me!” Anyway, for sheer entertainment
value, you’ll like them.

NAES BLOG - March 2017...
Several years ago I was asked to review a case concerning a young horse show exhibitor who accidentally drove a golf cart into an adult walking across the show grounds.

Every so often, it’s important to check your horse’s teeth. However, it seems that each state has different ideas about who should be legally allowed to examine or treat your horse’s teeth; a vet, licensed in his state, or a specialist, trained only in dental work but is NOT a licensed veterinarian. Always check before paying big bucks for the dental work needing to be done to your prize show horse.
