Hello everyone! I'm not new to horses but I am new to ownership, I recently bought a sweet but spirited grey mare, Pepper, after seeing her price fall weekly on craigslist until she got to near slaughter pricing (I bought her for $500.)
Her prior owner bought her for his kids; he was in over his head and knew very little about horse care. She was very underweight when I brought her home, and to save money he'd been trimming her hooves himself and they were in terrible shape. All he could tell me about her is she is 6 years old and supposedly a purebred Quarter horse with papers that he had lost.
It's been a month now and she's gaining weight, she had a real trim from our Farrier and jumps with joy when she's let out to run. The other day when sniffing a can of soda my friend noticed Pepper has a very easy to read tattoo! I was shocked, and now I'm hoping it can help me learn a little more about her. I don't even know her birthday or real name, as her prior owner just called her "Baby."
The tattoo is either L4106S or L41065
It doesn't look like your standard Quarter horse tattoo configuration. I'm trying to upload a photo but I'm on my phone and not having any success. Any ideas?
