    Undershot is the *lower* jaw with the front teeth in front of the upper
    teeth, or in the case of a goat, pad. Look at a bulldog. That is a classicly
    undershot (and correct for that breed) bite. _http://www.lbah.com/ushot.htm_

    (the second link defines both terms).

    Overshot (or parrot mouth) resembles a parrots beak, where the upper front
    teeth (or pad where teeth would be on a goat) is in front of the lower teeth,
    usually by more than 1/4 " as defined.

    This is a link with pictures of a horse with a misaligned bite known as
    Parrot mouth (or overshot).
