    Question Tattoo help....again! TIA!

    DD recently bought a bay TB gelding. His background is unknown and his tattoo is not very clear. I am hoping someone can help me ID him. He has two white coronets- one left front, one right hind. He also has roaning on his left back up to his hock. His tattoo is ?3794? His teeth indicate that he is not very old. The vet quessed 5 or 6 years old.
    I hope this is enough info to figure him out! Thank you so much for your assistance!

    you can get a free account here to do some research: https://www.registry.jockeyclub.com/...HelpDeskTattoo. they also have good tips on getting a good picture to help read the tattoo.

    once you have an account, go to tattoo identification services. you will need a letter though, but you can guess based on the vets estimate. then you'll just have to look through the descriptions and see what fits. you can also use equibase.com to get more info on the ones you find.

    Default Thanks!

    emeraldcity thank you for providing a way for me to figure out my horses tattoo myself this tiem and in the future!

    simkie I believe that is him. Not sure how he went from racing in IN to being sold in PA but all the markings match and there don't seem to be any others that work with those numbers.

    Thanks so much for all the assistance!

    I don't know if you went and Googled him then, but look at this:

    Baby pics, and plenty of others all through his career. You should be able to compare to see if it's him. I see the roaning you mentioned, so I'll bet it is.
