3 year old Teething?

Do horses go through teething???? I think my boy is growing in his big boy teeth... He hasn't been good with me putting on his headstall.. so I checked his teeth and there was some blood by his right front tooth. It seemed like they're getting longer. Around Novemeber when I bought him I remember he had his cute little baby teeth still. So I'm guessing he is in pain from them growing? Anything I should do to make it less painful?

Yes, they shed teeth as 3 yr olds and grow new ones. This is a great time to have a vet check the youngster's teeth and make sure there is no retained caps. I have always been diligent about my horses' dental state & never & I mean NEVER had bitting or mouth problems.

He'll be shedding and growing new teeth for a while now
1yr the 1st Permenant molars come through
2yrs the 2nd permenant molars come through
2Żyrs he lost the centre two incisors - top and bottom
3yrs the first two sets of temporary molars are replaced by the permenant molars
3Żyrs he'll lose the laterals - these are each side of the centre two teeth
3Ż - 4yrs tushes appear in the male horse
4Żyrs he'll lose the corner incisors
4 - 5yrs the 3rd & 6th permentant molars come through

Young horses really need expert dental care from 3 to at least 6 years to ensure all teeth come through correctly.

Oh wow. Yeah Looks like I"ll be calling a vet here soon :) thanks guys. Is there any chance I might get a little tooth trophy? LOL or will he just swallow them? :P

You might find them around - I have a couple from one of my youngsters but the rest just fall out somewhere.
