Dentist said that she had a bunch of small, sharp points but didn't look too bad for 1.5yrs. She did complain (kiddingly) that McKenna has a very narrow jaw (I know, I had to go buy smaller bits) and that most horses have some excess skin around their jaw and McKenna didn't. Her teeth were right against the skin. The only major thing was one of her teeth on the bottom right side of her face was crooked. Dentist couldn't tell if it was moving (please no, she's too young for dental problem!) or if it came in crooked. She's leaning towards it coming in crooked, as it didn't seem to move around when she was working on it. But its something to watch and she'll have to be done at least yearly to check on it.

Next week our chiropractor is coming out and McKenna's on her list. During her trainer ride last week, trainer said she was much stiffer going left than right, but I hadn't felt anything. But during our ride Wednesday I couldn't get her to pick up her left lead without some major head tossing, running forward and general bad ponyness. I had to dig my heel into her side while growling at her before I got a nice, clean transition. That's pretty unsuall for her so I agreed with trainer and called for the chiro.
