What animal is this?

    I have a question for hunters and outdoorsmen. I bought this anatomical specimen for $6 at an estate sale last weekend. I just thought it was cool. It's not very large--as the photos show it's about 12" long. The mandible is missing. The people running the sale thought it was a colt or pony. But the dentition is only molars. So it's definitely a grazing animal. But to my knowledge, all equines have incisor teeth. Also, there are no horns, and the upper lateral surfaces are smooth, without any indication of an attachment site for horns or antlers. I'm thinking it could be a fawn or small deer. But I'd expect a buck to have at least a nub where antlers would develop. So maybe it's a doe. Or could it be a calf, lamb, or goat? Not that it matters. I'll just hang on the wall as a decorative piece, in the southwest/Santa Fe style. But I would like to know the species. All opinions welcome. And please, no skullduggery. :oldthumbsup:


    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?
