    Default Age of horse by pic of teeth help

    I am trying to ID a horse on the ac4h.com websiite. I'm hoping someone here can help me figure out his age by looking at his teeth. I copied the picture of his teeth here:
    http://ac4h.com/2-8-11BOHorses%20204.JPG
    If that doesn't work, he's the bay saddlebred on the broker owned page 2.
    Thanks for the help!

    the link doesn't work. I am not going to the page, that's how I ended up with a new horse I didn't need! Good luck though. Is there any other way to post the picture.

    Thanks for the replies! I know there is controversy about AC4H, but I have already received 2 from previously there that I absolutely love! I know have been lucky though...
    I went to school and graduated with an Equine Science degree. I was taught how to age a horse by his teeth but I guess I haven't used it enough (ever really) to really remember how to tell a horse's relative age. I also don't have the literature that helped me learn how to tell a horse's age. I wish I would have kept ALL of my equine related homework and study guides.....
    Anyway, is there an Online resource that explains how to tell the age of a horse by its teeth?
    I really like this horse. I could use another school horse and a an Academy Saddle Seat horse with an upright neck, like he has, really shows the kids off well... I don't know if I need another 20 year old though. Both of my best ones are the exact same age and the reason I could use another one is because they are beginning to show their age... AC4H also can make no promises on ride-ability of their horses so I would be taking a big risk to buy him.
    It's too late, anyway. Right? Don't they close at 4pm on fridays?

    It appears the galvaynes groove is all the way down the tooth thus around 20ish would be a close guesstimate.

    Oh please come for a visit!! We were just talking about you today because I used your hoof glitter technique for a girls birthday party, it was such a hit! Cyber will NEVER be a lesson horse, lol. Right now he's just the Boss of his pasture. I have only let one person ride him, other than me, in the past 2 years. She actually did a great job. She is an accomplished show rider though. He needs to belong to you so he can wear silver for a living. He really thought that was the Bee's Knees! I have a lot more pics of him from that performance that I need to scan and get online to share.

    To everyone else, thanks for your help in aging that horse. I also apologize for all of the grammatical errors in my postings. I use to be an excellent english student I guess I need to stop watching TV while I type on COTH.
