Foal
Hey

Im in australia so it's a bit different down here

Most horses will carry the stud brand on the left shoulder, and the foaling details on the right. The foaling details are two numbers, one above the other.

The top number is the foal number (i.e. "2" for the second foal branded witht he stud brand that year) and the bottom number is the year (single digit) I.e. 2001 becomes "1" - but "1" may mean 1991 or 2011 (go off horse's teeth obviously)

Some studs (not common these days, perhaps a fashion trend?) will place the numbers up on the neck but the stud brand usually remains on the opposite shoulder :)

My current horse has shoulder brands, my last arab had the stud brand on the shoulder, and the foal details on his neck - all the horses from his studd had it done that way

Goodluck with your fact finding mission :)

A gal had a horse where I boarded at who was an older Arab mare. She had a freeze brand on her neck. The lady said it was normal. Looked like this:

I know there was another thread started by an Arabian owner who's gelding I believe had a freeze brand on his neck too. Posted pictures as well. If you go to allbreedpedigree.com and put in JJ Classic, you can find his dad, and under reports, click on progeny, and you can see some of his brothers and sisters.

The freeze brand for an arabian should be done on the right side of the neck. I don't know if it's the same for other countries, but that's where it was put in the US. If you shave the freeze brand and send pictures to the AHA they would probably read it for you and you might be able to get papers on him.
This is a guide to reading the Mustang brand which are put on the left side of the neck. I think that for Arabians, the first character is an A for purebred and an A on it's side for part or half breds. Off to do more research...

Sorry for the double post, but I found a picture of the half arabian symbol. I am still looking for the full arabian one, though it is just this first symbol turned upright.



There you go!

It is interesting to see the different brands!

My horse has a conjoined "Um" (the line of the you connects with the m) on one shoulder, and 3 over 7 on the other. That's all

Alot of arabians will have a brand on their neck, usually on the side their mane falls, (which means it can be either right or left). The reason they do it on the side the mane falls is so that when shown, the brand isn't a 'distraction'...it's covered.

I don't remember JJ Classic, but do remember is sire and sire's sire very well. Your horse might have been bred here in S. Cal.

Jj Classic Arabian

Your horse's sire's pedigree.
