Help me find out my pony's age please

So, I was looking through some photos I just took over Spring Break, and I saw this pic of my pony:



I have never taken the time to actually look at his teeth really, but I was wondering if someone could help me out with his age? I know you can go by the groove, but I don't know if it's the deep one (making him 10-15 years old) or the thin one (making him 20-25 years old). I was told he's around 15, but I'd like to know what you guys think. I've never had to tell a horse's age by teeth, but I'd like to know how old my little Happy Apples is. :)

Thanks!

The Galvayne's groove is dark in color. Its hard to tell since its a distance shot- but it looks like 15-ish is correct.

Here is a link with pics:

Thanks! So, if I'm looking correctly, he's actually probably younger than 15?

Here's a zoomed in pic:

I'd say 13-15 years would be a good guess. They aren't exact as you could see on the link. There are indicators as well if you can look at the whole mouth, but its a good estimate.
