Re: Peanut has stopped eating her hay

When our horse stopped eating her hay, we thought she was stressed or just being picky.  A few weeks later, she developed a huge swelling on the side of her face from a tooth root abscess.  Her teeth had been floated and examined closely by the vet twice at that point but the break in her tooth was below the gumline and couldn't be seen without xrays.  Are you noticing any unusual odor from her mouth or do you ever see any discharge from her nose?  It doesn't have to be consistent to indicate a problem.  I would seriously consider some dental xrays to make sure she doesn't have any changes around any of her roots or any bony changes in her jaws.
