MARK. A horse marks; that is, he shows his age by a black spot, called the bud or eye of a bean, which appears at about five years and a half, in the cavity of the corner teeth, and is gone when he is eight years old; then he ceases to mark, and we say, he has rased.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835
