An old horse with unusual wearing of the upper incisors. The horse does not exhibit any oral vices, however, the movement of his tongue was rapid like a snake, curling upwards, and alternated from one side to the other suggesting this was caused by unusual tongue movement. Also notice that there is no mirror image of the lower incisors over erupting into the lost upper corner incisors. This illustrates that the tongue is the primary shaper of the soft enamel of the incisors.
