Hi Nikki,

Before I would make any kind of decisions as to whether or not I would breed this mare, I would have her teeth floated. With these Shetlands and lot of time it's hooks far back on the jaw that causes their teeth to be off.

Once she had her checked and her teeth are back in line, then this would tell you immediately if it was an inheritated trait. We have all of our Shetlands teeth floated every year. It's an expense that is worth it. Part of maintance on a horse.
