Can you help me to confirm my TB's tattoo number?

I believe she is between the age of 14-17 years old. Her color is black in the winter and very faded bay in the summer. Her left hind's coronet band is half white with a black stop in the middle of the white and she has a white stripe on her face. Here are some photos:









I'm almost positive the numbers are 13710, although I think it could be 13740. I have no idea what the letter is. According to the chart, the letter could only be A, X, Y, or Z (correct?).

Anyway, I'm having trouble finding her. She would have been bred in Texas.

Any help you can give me would be great!
Thanks in advance!

I went through this with trying to find my mare, have you been here https://www.registry.jockeyclub.com/...ServicesAction
I basically just kept trying letters(her letter was really hard to read also) that would match her aprox age and putting in the numbers that i knew for sure until i found a horse that matched her star description, then i got really lucky when i googled her suspected name and came up with a classified ad with a pic, if you post full body pics and a face pic it might help more, i got a few matches with different combinations, but without seeing her face it's imposible to know for sure

V3710? V would make her a 1992 foal.

The website says:
*Use a cloth to blot the lip to reduce shine and massage the area.

*Take the horse into a dim area and shine a flashlight, blacklight, or colored LED light on the tattoo from below the lip, then try the light at different angles.

*Take a digital picture of the tattoo and enhance the contrast. Note: Do not use a flash and take the picture on an overcast day or out of direct sunlight.

Rachel1786: Yes, I know the jockeyclub website. That's how I found the info on my other OTTB! :) I've tried ALL combinations with letters using those exact numbers and no horses are matching with her same markings. Where do you recommend I post some photos of her to see if anyone knows her?

BeauReba: With these pictures of her tattoo I tried the same thing except I used the flash. I'm almost positive that the numbers are right: 13710. I would think it's pretty obvious but I keep doubting myself.

Here are some pictures of her facial markings, but I don't have any pictures of her left hind...if you need better face pictures, I've got some on my other computer. And I can get a picture of her left hind tomorrow if need be.



And here is her color in the summer. Would you consider her a bay, black, or dark bay/brown? Can't make up my mind...

With the search engine that the jockeyclub provides, I would think this is what I would enter for her information:

Tattoo:
Year - unknown (would have to try multiple combinations)
Color - dark bay/brown
Sex - Mare
Facial Markings - Yes
Stripe - Yes
Left Hind Markings - Yes
Would this be correct?

Also, does anyone of any other suggestions? I'm in desperate need of trying to figure out my mare's past!

wow this is a hard one, i would try taking pics without the flash, i did get a description that sound kinda like her, but i'm not very good at this
Large irregular star and connected narrow stripe, widening and extending to right above nostrils, becoming bordered flesh colored and ending between nostrils, into right nostril. Right hind: ankle white, higher on inside; dark spot on coronet on inside in front. Double diagonal cowlick at eye level, right is higher.

The info is
Horse Name Brady Badger Tattoo Z37154 Year of Birth 1996 Dam Name Melanie Maker Color Bay Sex Mare
but i'm not sure if the numbers are right and i can't find any pictures of the horse, i'll keep looking later lol

It has to start with a letter... To me it looks like a V but it's difficult to see. I tried taking pics of a STB tattoo years ago who was in her 20s at the time and it was very difficult!

Rachel1786: Thanks so much for taking the time to look that up! I think it's a little too far off than the actual numbers, though.

I'll take pictures of her lip tomorrow without a flash and see if it looks any clearer. But right now, I'm hitting a brick wall! lol Hopefully I'll find something soon...

So I did the actual tattoo lookup, not the partial, and got a z13710 for a bay mare, Kuba Libra Classic, bred in TX, 30 starts and a winner. Breeder is Mike Tomlinson.

Free 5-Cross Thoroughbred Pedigrees from equineline.com - Thoroughbred Pedigree now with Free Interactive Nicking

Place to start anyway. Tried googling her and hit a dead end, but googled Tomlinson and came up with some stuff, so it appears that he's still on the scene. Maybe you can get in touch with him? See if he may remember her or have some pics for comparison? I get the feeling that this may be your mare. She looks like she has some Slew with that facial marking. ;)

I keep running across this mare every time. I sure hope it's her! :) Thanks so much for taking the time to look!

I'll definitely try to get in touch with him and send him some pics. Maybe he'll remember!

Thanks again!
