So, we are in search of Aero's true identity via the registry. Problem is, we have been unable to successfuly decipher her tattoo, so I am left wading through possible matches based on a partial reading. I'm hoping some fresh eyes might read her markings a little differently than I have and make the matching a bit easier (and wanting to double check my reading of them as it has been a LONG time since I learned/did this way back in 4-H, lol). The sideviews aren't the best as far as showing the white on her leg close-up, but the do give a general idea and are all I have available here at work.
Are you looking for just the basics? Star disconnected from strip and snip. Left hind sock to middle of fetlock. Is there also a thin white stripe on the coronet band of her right hind or is it just the pic?
It will be pretty hard because I'm sure that there are thousands of bay horses out there with the exact same markings. Good luck. :)
I wish they were basic, lol, they are actually pretty specific as it is the descriptions entered to the Jockey Club at the time of registration so they are very specific about the size, shape, direction, location, clarity. Sorting through them is proving to be an adventure to say the least.
I am going to blacklight the tattoo tonight as I have been told that can make it easier to make out. I will also try to get a snap or two of it (not easy to do as I will be working solo - should be interesting) and maybe someone can make it out better than I
