Guessing ages. Please help

We have been wanting horses for a long long time and my younger sisters got some Wednesday. They are a small herd, just the stallion (will be gelded) the mom and their baby.
We where told the dad (Emir) was 7 and the mom (Dalyn pronounced Day-lean) was 5 and the baby (Caden) was 4 months. The man we got them from lied about absolutely everything, and said the dad was a Morgan...hes a pony.We only got them because they definitely would not have made it and im glad we did they are amazing.

So how old to you thing they are.
Emir is the black one

EDIT: Wait how do you post pics

If you can upload the photos to Facebook (just do it as private so only you see). Then right click on the uploaded photo and "copy image url". Then use that to post the photo :)

You either make progress or you make excuses. Your choice.

Remember for accurate aging we would need to see teeth. Both a view of the incisions and a view with the mouth open showing the biting surface of the incisions.

I don't know how small the stallion is, but Morgans can definitely be large pony sized...a Morgan cross could definitely be small pony sized, I've known several.

You can use a range of photo hosting services like photobucket or attach photos to your post.

Getting pictures of teeth is doable - just have someone hold the horse and lift its lip while the other takes a photo or films even.

When you have the vet out to geld they should be able to check ages.

Thanks we had a vet come out to check on the foal and they just said he needed to eat. We asked about age and they said probably about 3-4 months so hes now probably about 4-5 months now.


Oh and that stallion we are selling

Oh he was eating the guy we got them from had the poor guy seperate from his mom and I dont know how long it was. As soon has they got out of the trailer and where together he started nursing and he ate the other feed we gave him. He was just really really skinny he could hardly stand. Now he is still nursing and running around playing like a foal should be
