Anyone know how to age a horse by their teeth?

So I took some lovely pictures of Stormy's teeth as I'm not totally sure how old she is..I am wondering if she is younger than I think or older..I am pretty sure she isn't 2..here are her teeth. I think they are called milk teeth.

I'm no expert, I'd say she was around 2 y/o

"Did I not just use the word 'puzzling'?"

see I'm not sure if she is one or 2 now because I was looking at teeth charts and thought they looked similar...anyone else?

I'm by no means an expert, but I would judge her as quite a bit younger than 2. Rafe will be 2 in a couple of months and I can see where his milk teeth are growing out a bit. More so than your filly.

That being said, his are the only young teeth I have ever really seen LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
