What could he have done?!

I went outside yesterday to throw some extra hay out and check everyone out and I noticed my gelding had some blood on his cheek. I looked, it's just a tiny cut. No need for stitches or anything. Him and his buddies play rough so sometimes they get little bumps bruises and cuts. But I looked at the other horse he's with, he had blood on his chin and lip. it was a tiny bit but I looked anyway expecting maybe he bit his lip or, maybe he scratched it while being ******ed with the gelding.
Nottttt what I expected when I opened his mouth. Bloody mess.
The last front tooth, bottom left; he has pulled outwards.

I'm sure he didn't get kicked in the mouth. The tooth is pulled outwards; not bashed in. and his nose/lip is not hurt. it's like he bit something and yanked it out. It's strange.

He's alright now, eating, drinking and I can mess with his nose and he doesn't act like it bothers him.
He'll have to get his teeth checked and probably floated more often now that his top tooth has nothing to wear itself down on. no bleeding or anything.

I'm betting he did it while they were playing. But I don't know what he did it on. or how.

I will try to get pictures soon

Left the vet a message, it's Sunday though, so... I don't know if hell be there Monday either. gah.
Well he's comfortable and eating and acting normal so I think he'll be alright until I can find a vet

also his tooth isn't sticking out of his mouth. I was pulling it down there, when he shuts his mouth it's not noticeable.

That looks awful. It does look like he bit something and then yanked his mouth. I hope it will heal well.

It looks alot like a mare we treated at the clinic. She had actually broken the jaw bone which caused the teeth to look like that. We wired the jaw together and she ate soft food for awhile, is fine now.
I would definately have the vet out, this is not right. Those teeth might have to be pulled out, and he will do fine having two teeth missing.

good luck

teeth

Horses do stupid things all the time. My mare decided to attack a horse walking past her stall when she was 3 but bit a wooden upright instead and one of her teeth flew right out. She also somehow bit right into her tongue one day. She has survived OK for the past 18 years so I wouldn't worry too much but its would be better to have the teeth removed than risk them growing at an angle.

Oh my word! That's weird. I'll be interested to hear what the vet has to say about it.
