She doesn't have an opposing tooth so that hook is a result of just not having another surface grinding against it. She will always have a problem there.
I got her 2 months ago, and the guy I got her from had her for about a year. He didn't say specifics on when, but this couldn't have just shown up overnight. As soon as I seen that, I about blew my top. I'm going to work on getting a dentist out here, I know 3 very good dentists that are for the horse's comfort.
I feel so bad for getting mad at her earlier when she was throwing her head and being a terror. No wonder why! At-least when I felt her teeth in the back, they weren't terribly sharp. I guess we will go back to riding in a halter for a while until the dentist comes out.
