Today Starbuck had her first visit from the dentist (Sandra Fortuny)! She's a woman about my age or a little younger who did her veterinary residency in the USA at animal hospitals near Belmont and Aqueduct racetracks, so she's seen a lot of horses in her day. Both Starbuck and I appreciated her calm, professional "stallside" manner and she was also really instructive, explaining what she was doing and how to tell if problems arise in the future.
All in all an educational day and much less stressful than I feared! Thanks Sandra!!!
