Horse teeth are interesting. I want to show you three reasons why they are interesting.
Horses have wolf teeth and canine teeth. Two types of teeth some folks seem to confuse. I’ll be using two of my three horse skulls for examples. Take the horse on the left in the photo above. You can see it has rather impressive canine teeth. The horse on the right has some pretty tiny wolf teeth.

Shout out to City of Dust who took the photo of the horse it hangs above before I cleaned her bones all up
Horse Teeth: canine teeth
Canine teeth are large and curved.
Horse Teeth: wolf teeth
Wolf teeth are small and like to hug the neighbors.
A quick extra edition here: the horse skull I have with wolf teeth also has something called supernumerary. Or, extra incisors.
