Photo Challenge: 20 Dental Adventures (Part 1)

A lot of cheap dates in this group.

The magnificent, majestic beast that is the horse. They look off into the distance as if they can hear the call of centuries of kings. They are the Earth’s noblest creatures …. until you get them fully schnockered for that ever-important dental appointment.

Here are 20 horses getting their drink on and getting those teeth fixed up right and proper!

(Note: If you submitted a smiling photo, stay tuned! We’re running a collection of grinning ponies Friday!)
