To Tell a Horse's Age.
Every horse has six teeth above
and below. Before 3 years old he
sheds the middle teeth. At 3
years he sheds one more on either
side of the central teeth. At 4 he
sheds the two corner and last of
the fore teeth. Between 4 and 5
years the horse cuts the under
tusks, at which time his mouth
will be complete. At 6 the
grooves and hollows begin to fill
up a little; at 7 the grooves are
well nigh filled up, except the
corner teeth, leaving little brown
spots where the dark brown hol
lows formerly were. At 8 the
whole of the hollows and grooves
are filled up. At 9 there is often
seen a small bill to the outside
corner teeth, the point of the tusk
is worn off and the part that was
concave begins to fill up and be
comes rounding; the squares of
the central teeth begin to disap
pear and the gums leave them
small and narrow at the top.
