It looks like the stallions have a slightly different brand (most likely to identify them from far away as stallions vs. mares. But I was just looking at a 16/1 mare, and she's red roan.. which depending what the 16 means, she could be a sibling to my girl (if this is the guy) and red roan isn't too far off from solid red..right?
I'm trying to muster the right words to ask when I call. Because I've never done this before, and I'm just really nervous.

The red roan stallion could be daddy .. I think she's shaped like him.. and he's a cow pony bred top and bottom ...

(This is kinda exciting .. like opening presents on Christmas morning) ..

Maybe when you talk to him you can just say "I think I ended up with one of your horses and I was wondering if you could tell me who she is?" ..

First tell them how much you like the horse, how well build she is, what a great disposition, how smart, ... breeders love when they hear good things about their horses, and it makes them much more willing to help with uncommon requests!

Well, someone, dbarabians just brought up a good point, that maybe I should mail him by snail mail instead. If he's not computer savvy (which, he's older and doesn't have an e-mail, then he probably isn't) and if he's not computer savvy, he's probably even less so phone/picture messaging savvy, then there's no way to send him pictures to find out lol. So it makes for an awkward conversation. Unless he can instantly remember a 16/7 sorrel filly.. which he has so many, I think that's a long shot.
So I may mail him a letter with some pictures, and I will be sure to say how much I love her and how many compliments I get on her, as you suggested caljane..because she deserves to be bragged about. And I'll leave him the option to call me back once he reads it : )

Well. Scratch that idea. I guess phone call it is, and then address. All I can find on the site is his name, city, state and zip code. I could mail and hope, but I really do need a street address. Unless someone else is feeling google-savvy lol... I think I've to call.

Silberxx, I am sorry to bust your b***, but this is not going to happen. Really, I work a lot together with old time breeders - they will never take the time in their busy lives to react on snail mail. Call - take all your guts and call. Chances are very high that he will remember this filly. He breeds color and does not have many sorrels. Chances are actually very high that she is the filly in the picture with the bay roan 16/1 mare. The seven on her bud is obviously a year brand (makes her a 2007 model), and I assume that the shoulder brand get's carried down from the mare. My gelding has a number brand 14, came from his mom (unfortunately, it is a very ugly brand on him ).
Call. Now!

Ask him about buying a colt or breeding to one of his stallions. That should break the ice. If he is that old practice on Faceman here and see if he is receptive. LOL Shalom
