Telling a horses age...?
Right now the big 'To Sell or Not To Sell Sam' debate is circling around how old he is. I won't be able to get a vet out until next week at the earliest to take a look at him and give me a an idea of his age.
The guy SAYS he is about 16. Problem is I have no way to verify that. How do you tell a horses age? I heard teeth aging is basicly the only way to go. How do I do this as accurately as possible?
If he's around 20 or under he gets to stay. If he's over 23 than he'll be going to a retirement or pasture home.
So yeah...help? I'd love to keep him, but can't if he's TO old. It's just not financially feasible at this point in time.
This gives a really good description on how to read the Galvayne's Groove. Go to page 5 or 6 for your age group. It ain't exact but gives you a ball park
