Hi there!

I was just wondering if someone could give me an age "guesstimate" on this little fella. Miniature gelding. Sorry for the poor picture, unfortunately this is the only photo I have! Thank you in advance!

I’d say in between 4 and 6 judging by his teeth but I could be wrong

It’s good enough I don’t think other pictures would really help much.

We need to see the cups (chewing surface) of the lower front incisors. A young horse can acurately be aged by the wear of the cups. Eventually those wear away and other things give clues, like Galvane's Groove and how steeply angles the front teeth are. Pretty pony by the way :)

I'd say around 10-12yrs old or so. The galvayne's groove seems to have already started and his teeth aren't so angled as to make me think older. He's completely adorable!

I'm going over 10 as well. Those are at too steep an angle, the groove is present. Would be nice to see cups.
