Aging By Teeth – View Left Side

Reviewing these images is a long process if you go through the whole set. The idea is to notice all the differences and variability seen within each age. Then, as the age becomes greater, notice the increased variability. Also, note that some horses’ left and right sides are different, yielding a different age. The difference is caused by the horse’s tongue movement, jaw movement or both. The image data is the evidence I give for the horse’s age.

In the left and right views: The tongue presses against the backs of the incisors. As the horse ages, the incisors are pushed forward.  This is from the tongue pushing them forward over time as it moves out of the mouth with each bite of grass.

In the left and right views of the male horses: Note the shaping of the canine teeth due to the stropping of the tongue. The action forms a dagger-like shape with a razor edge.
