 Looking at purchasing a gelding with an overbite. The lady said he has no trouble grazing and no issues but definitely does have a pretty good parrot mouth. Other than needing to have their teeth done more and possible grazing issues are there other things I need to worry about?

Yes. Proper dental care. I’ve had some bad ones and
Never had a problem. They ride with the same bits as my others.

I had one with an overbite.  It wasn't really as bad as some that I've seen.  I didn't know it until after I bought him but it didn't bother him or me at all.

I have one & my vet, who is a very good equine dentist, said just to keep him UTD on dental work & he will be fine.  I have had no issues and he is turning out to be a really nice horse.

My mom went to the NFR on a parrot mouth horse :) Same as stated above, just keep up on dental work. His was worse as a baby then he kind of grew into it, but teeth were floated at 6-9 months usually.

Yes.  I have one and have no issues what so ever with him (other than looking at him). I don't see where it affects his perfomrance or day to day living at all.  Now saying that, I would not breed a horse with a severe overbite, but I would buy another.

I think it would be ok. But I would make a dental exam as part of my pre-purchase exam
