Unhappy Shetland colt lost a tooth help please

I have a rising four year old colt who has just lost his tooth. The siad tooth was completely brown a couple of days ago when I was checking his teath then today it had fallen out. So I have a few questions which are:
Is it normal that a pony of his age to loose a tooth?
If it isn't normal then does any one have any ideas what could have happened?
Will a new tooth grow there?
If there is no new tooth can he still pass his stallion test?
Will missing a tooth effect him in the show ring if they were to chech his teeth?

Any advice is very greatfully resvied.
Thank you

Yes, they loose their baby teeth just like we do. I have found 5 of my 4yr old's teeth. If it was brown and icky looking, like he had a cavity, you could have the vet look at his teeth just to make sure they aren't bothering him or he doesn't have anymore possible cavities. At 4yrs old though he should have had his teeth already checked on by a vet.
