Problem with horse's teeth...
My husband and I went and looked at a 9 year old mare today that we're considering buying for him for pleasure riding/trails. I looked in her mouth her front teeth look weird. I'll try to describe it as best I can...
There is a gap in the middle - possibly a tooth is missing, but the gap is square in the middle on the top, and the two teeth on either side of it are splayed out at probably 45 degree angles, going away from each other.
The mare is FAT so obviously it isn't impeding her eating as of now, and I don't see how it could cause problems bitting with it being right in the front, but I am wondering if this is something that will cause problems down the road? Or if it is something that needs to be corrected? I don't even know if it can be corrected.
