What Are Shark's Teeth?

...okay, so what do shark's teeth have to do with horses?

Yesterday, I talked about quarter marks, which are placed on a horse's rump or croup to complete turnout in some classes (or just for the fun of it).

Shark's teeth go on the upper part of the hind leg. The fur is brushed forward into a series of points. Like quarter marks, it's seen when hunters and riding horses/ponies are turned out for the show ring and it serves the same purpose - enhances the conformation and shows off the coat quality.

(If anyone has a good picture I can legally use for this blog, please let me know. I can't find one).
