Do foals teethe? My filly is a month old today, and she tries to chew on everything. Not like nip and hold on or bite, but she likes to have something in her mouth and chew, she chews on my shoe laces, her mommas halter, leadropes, my pants legs, even my shirts if they are loose. I'm wondering if I should get her a chew toy that would be suitable for a large dog?

If foals don't teethe, then I need to jump the gun to curb her chewing habit asap. But if she's doing it because it eases the pain of her teeth coming in I don't want to scold here for doing so.

Rest In Peace My Sweet Angel:

Yes horses teeth! Right up until they are 6 and get in their last canines they can want to teeth. I usually just try to give them something suitable to mouth so they don't teeth on wood (risk of splinters) or on me.
