Horse tooth

This is a heavily worn lower tooth of the one-toed horse Equus. I had lost this in my front yard for three days. I searched countless hours for this little gem. I think my neighbors thought I was crazy. I even took the front seats of my truck to see if it had fallen between them. I was about to give up when my buddy said he would come over and look fo it. Sure enough within 3 minutes of him looking he found it. He's just got that abillity to pull something out of thin air , especially while fossiling. You could be screen sifting next to him all day and you both are doing well then all of a suuden in the last half hour he'll pull out a mammoth tooth or a perfect 3" meg or a point. I never fails but its always fun. And Thanks to Richard Hulbert for th I.D.
