Not so mini teeth

This seemed the logical place to proceed after mini bites. Miniature horses would naturally have small hooves, small appetites, right? Right. Small teeth? Not right. Strange as it may seem miniature horses' teeth are almost the same size as their larger counterparts. This may explain one of the reasons why minis often live longer.

A horse's tooth is unlike most (if not all) other creatures. It is not attached to the bone and contrary to a common misconception it does not continuously grow. Rather it works itself out of the gum socket gradually over the course of the horse's lifetime. In most cases literally as without teeth they starve to death.

When the horse eats it grinds its teeth wearing them down. The more wear and tear on the tooth the sooner it wears out. Since mini horse eat so much less but have almost the same size teeth they don't wear out as quickly!
