I want to say 6 years old without seeing the cups. The cups could change this to 9 year old. There is no dove tail on the corner teeth so that helps to eliminate 7 and 8 years old. They have little angle so I doubt over 10 but cannot see the cups so cannot say for sure.

I'm going to agree with ~10-12. There's not a lot of angle to the teeth, but they look quite a bit longer than the photos I took of my horse's teeth when he was 9 years old.

The hook that develops on the corner teeth is routinely removed in the floating process, so its absence is not necessarily an indicator.

I'll get pics of the grinding surfaces this evening.

Eta: We have no idea how old she really is, my mother picked her up from a dry lot for $150 with no information on her. My vet is supposed to be out in the next week or so to pull a coggins on her, age her, and give her a check up. Is there anyway I could get info on her from BLM?

Never mind, I found it on the BLM website, I decoded her brand. She was caught in Nevada, born 2002. So whoever said 12 was right. Thanks!
