Vega lost about 3 baby teeth since I've owned her.
I believe they lose all of them, but I think they either spit them out or swallow them!

They typically fall out at 2.5, 3.5,and 4.5 years old. The two most inner teeth, top and bottom go first and then they move outwards from there. I have had them fall out as early as 2 and had them wait as long as just over 3 years to lose the first set. They should lose pretty much all of their teeth but rare to see them or find them. I have found quite a few since all but one horse I have owned has been a baby and have almost a complete set of teeth from different minis at the house. I just found them cleaning stalls or randomly they were left when eating in the food pan.

They will also lose their 3rd pre-molar on each side at about 4 years old

Yep, my gelding is 4 1/2 now and losing more teeth I noticed the other day. I've found about 5 of his teeth or molar caps in the manger. One time I thought one of the horses was injured because they had blood on their white, but it turned out they'd just been playing and Cody was losing teeth!
