    Question foals loosing thier teeth-affects in later life

    Hi everyone,

    I'm in the market for a youngster and found a beautiful colt- emailed the owner to arrange to see him and was told while moving yards he fell off the box and hurt his front leg and knocked out his front teeth.

    Does anyone have any experience with this? What health problems might he have as a result later in life?


    Thanks in advance
    Amie

    If he's young enough it's probably fine. They naturally lose their baby teeth sooner or later.

    You would need to be extra on top of regular visits from a dentist while the adult teeth grow in. If there is a gap that wouldn't normally be there (because the baby teeth would be filling it), that can cause the adult teeth to grow in abnormally and cause life long dental problems. A good dentist would be able to help manage the situation though so if you have access to one, I wouldn't let it stop me from buying the colt.
