    Default Help with a brand, please

    While horse shopping to day we rode a horse with numbers tatooed on his butt. He had one number on the left side of his tail and two, one over the other on the right side of his butt. They told me he was a Selle Francais, but I really don't think so. Any care to comment?
    Thanks

    What color is the horse?

    Dont Lipizzaners do numbers and figures on like 4 places on the horses body to indicate lineage? Could be wrong here, but I thought I heard something like that.

    Good Luck!

    I have seen that a couple times. Not sure where it comes from. Maybe certain regions do that? No idea why, but Russia sticks in my head but could be way off. Have also seen some with brands under saddle area.

    Argentinian bred polo ponies have their year of birth (single digit) and the foal # of that stud farm branded on either side of their tails. FWIW.

    I rode an Argentinian Warmblood with a similar (sounding) brand.

    That was my guess. Perhaps an Argentinian TB.

    Yes, many of Argentina's polo horses have numbers branded on their butts. The Argentinian horses I know are polo bred horses, not TB's but a cross specifically bred for polo. The number branding on the butt is more of a ranch/farm brand, not necessarily breed specific. The Russian import I had was branded on the left shoulder. He was an Orlov.

    I have a polish warmblood that is branded with numbers on both sides of her back, under the saddle.
