    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 would say between 8-10 years old.

    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!
