    I had a big TB with a ranch brand but no lip tattoo, as he was never raced.

    Thumbs up all around! I emailed my friend and she was also happy to finally get an answer. They had researched all over.

    Jhorne... If the mare was bred to be a sport horse, they would not be tattooed. I had a JC registered mare that was bred for sport and never tattooed. She was amazing!

    You're welcome. I had a lot of help from the registry to figure out the identity of my mare

    US Standardbreds used to get a tattoo with their reg number, but many also had freezebrands of usually 2 or 3 characters done for ID on the farm. So that is probably the story with 150. The one I rode as a teenager had just a 2 on his neck. These days the reg number is freeze branded on the neck. The mare with a mustang type brand was likely imported from Australia, where they freeze brand Standardbreds with the alpha angle system, or New Zealand, which uses a similar TVI system.

    I know some registries brand yearlings. Would that make a difference in the final size of the brand. Less time to grow and stretch with the horse as he/she ages?

    Also, I would like to add that it may very well be a Knabstrupper brand which is a K inside a crest. Do you have a picture of his face? Does he happen to have a star and a strip?

    Well, since the one picture shows what look like two numbers below the brand, I'm going Westfalen too.

    If all brands prior to 2010 have the number, what do more recent brands have?

    that was given as an example of a known Westfalen brand. It is not from the horse in question.

    Do you have a picture of his face by chance? Head on?

    Just like any other color breed, there is a chance of a horse being produced without spots.

    Jhorne, the OTTB I used to have had a big, white D433 branded across his butt. He originally came from a ranch in New Mexico.

    Cute boy.

    This might be my western sensibilities but I REALLY REALLY doubt it's a "fake" warmblood brand, just given what it trouble it is to brand (for owner and horse alike). Out west hear all branding symbols are supposed to be licensed/registered and branding is more difficult for everyone involved than tattooing. Not flippantly done. I cannot imagine someone doing it to fake a heritage. You brand something because you want to KEEP it. That stock in your band that didn't quite turn out to be up to the quality expected? You might "forget" to brand that. Again, western culture.
    At all times, we are either training or untraining.

    Hmm. My Westphalian mare didn't have any numbers under the crest that I can recall...and before you start questioning her registry, all her papers were in hand at the time I owned her (and I bought her from the breeder).

    So, wait, did the person asking about the face markings know the horse or not?
