Hi everyone,

I'm in the market for a youngster and found a beautiful colt:D- emailed the owner to arrange to see him and was told while moving yards he fell off the box and hurt his front leg and knocked out his front teeth:cry:.

Does anyone have any experience with this? what health problems might he have as a result later in life?


Thanks in advance:lol:

If he's young enough it's probably fine. They naturally lose their baby teeth sooner or later.

You would need to be extra on top of regular visits from a dentist while the adult teeth grow in. If there is a gap that wouldn't normally be there (because the baby teeth would be filling it), that can cause the adult teeth to grow in abnormally and cause life long dental problems. A good dentist would be able to help manage the situation though so if you have access to one, I wouldn't let it stop me from buying the colt.
