Aging By Teeth – View Straight On

 

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 straight-on view: Most horses have a “relaxed space” where the teeth are not clenched tightly together.  This is like you, right now, with your incisors apart.

In the straight-on view: Note, the white areas versus the stained areas.  This indicates where the tongue has been able to reach and clean.
