This isn't a "what's wrong with my horses teeth" so I dunno if it goes in health but eh.

So this is my second horse shadow's teeth, He is gauged at 6 y/os, but he hasn't got the upper (wolf?) tooth. Is it normal, and does it just take a bit to come through, or may it never come through, should I get a horse dentist to have a look?

If it is late coming through, could it be causing him pain and causing him to bolt?

Okay maybe it is a what's wrong haha :P

Not all horses get wolf teeth. Has your horse ever had his teeth floated? How long have you owned him?

And by "wolf teeth," do you mean canines? Because the big ol' bottom tooth with the tartar all over it is a canine, not a wolf tooth. Most male horses will have all four canines, but again, some do not.
