In Partnership with the Carson Valley Times, Eastern Sierra Feed Launches New Community Trivia Contest
We are excited today to announce the launch of a new Trivia Contest which we have been testing the last few weeks with our email readers.
The Animals of this World are so fascinating. And as media increases we see some truly unique animals and behaviors captured on video. So we thought it would be fun to challenge the community to a little Trivia Challenge and give out some great prizes monthly. Each Month we will introduce a new trivia question about a random animal on this planet. Then we will collect all correct answers and choose a winner.
We hope you will enjoy the contest. Enter each month for a chance to win. Only one correct entry for each person will be entered into the drawing.

You can also drop by the store and give us your answers.
This months Trivia Question: Which mammal uses similar traits of a human baby sucking its thumb to calm itself at a young age?
Here is an excellent video demonstrating what exactly is being done inside of the mouth during a routine dental float.
This Video was posted by Premier Equine Veterinary Services. We thought it was just a great video to share.
Once a horse is in its late 20s or early 30s, molar loss becomes a concern. Floating involves a veterinarian wearing down the surface of the teeth, usually to remove sharp points or to balance out the mouth.
Unlike your own teeth, your horse's teeth keep growing. At times, your horse's teeth may develop sharp edges, making it difficult for her to chew food, hold a bit, or simply have pain and discomfort inside her mouth.
Confined horses or those that do not have the ability to graze all day are more prone to teeth overgrowth, as they are not naturally grinding their teeth all day to keep them smooth. Also, just like you, your horse can have other dental problems. A horse can have excessively worn teeth, loose or broken teeth, or infected gums.
One sign that your horse's teeth may need to be floated is if she is consistently dropping food from her mouth and you start seeing signs of weight loss. Your horse may also exhibit behavior like head-tossing or opening her mouth frequently.
Hope this video and brief description is helpful to our readers.
