He could also be from Mexico too. I got my palomino from a horse sale in Texas but he was originaly a ranch horse from Mexico somewhere. He has a PS branded on his left hip. The letters are reversed so it kind of looks like a 92

What about your state agriculture office. They may have listing of local farms and the brands they use.
Good luck.

I'm guessing you don't have any papers on him, or a registration number?

My horse has a brand that I have been trying to track for a year now-have tried several state brand inspectors & searches on the net, no luck yet. Anyone recognize this brand? It is on the horse's left shoulder & I guess him to be 16-20 yrs. old & quarterhorse.

That's not true. Utah also has full time brand inspectors and I would bet Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Colorado, Nevada, Texas, New Mexico, and arizona also have brand inspectors because every time cattle or other livestock change hands or ship out of state they have to have a brand inspection and every animal has to be looked at.

The triangle brand with the numbers is located on his right haunch. anyone have ideas how I can find out where my baby came from? Thank you!
The bad news is that your horses brand is probably indicating the last digit of the year it was foaled, the stallion and the mare band. Most of the time these brands are not required to be registered as they are for the owners purposes and horses are not required to be identified with a brand. The ranch that your horse came from could be anywhere in North America. Canadian and mexican ranches do similar things. The good news is if you assume that the ranch is still operating and it is based in the US there are not that many places that have a horse herd that requires that kind of indentifcation particularly on geldings. I don't know how many of these big ranches will have websites and even though they are a small percentage your still looking at a lot of work to find out very little about your horse in the long run. Have you looked under the top lip for a tattoo? This might be more helpful.
