We put all these pieces together to judge an age. Things like dental care and cribbing can through a hitch into getting an accurate age but shouldn't throw you off by more than a few years. Galvayne's groove has been shown in multiple scientific studies to be wholly inaccurate and I never use it when trying to age a horse.
    I see, I see. I completely understand why these pictures can't be of good judgement. I just couldn't get a picture of her teeth very well. I was lucky she even let me open her mouth to get the second picture. -shrug-
    I guess I'll just have to go with my gut instinct on her age.
