    Does the Farrier come to you or do you take your horse to them? Are they the same people who float the teeth or is that just the vet? Do you take your horse to the vet for these things or do they come to you?
    Thanks!

    They come to you. Farriers do the feet and vets do the teeth, but they will both come to you. [​IMG]

    My farrier does feet and does the floating. But he's very well trained and has been doing it for over 40 years!

    They will come to you.
    Vet for teeth
    Farrier for hooves.

    (my farrier also comes over for dinner [​IMG] )

    There are also people who specialized in horse dentistry only.

    What should I estimate the cost for the teeth floating, is it under $100 or over?

    my vet won't float teeth. it was $65 each done by a equine dentist. my farrier only does feet for $30 a piece

    Around here the vet does the teeth floating and the farrier the feet. They will both come to you but it is cheaper for the horse owner to take a horse to the vet for anything as you don't get charged the 'travel/mileage/ranch fee'. Of course, you have to have a horse trailer.

    I had my horse's teeth floated two years ago... it was over $100, I just don't remember exactly how much.

    The farrier always comes to our place.
