This is our boy Cecil he is a 26 Y/O OTQH gelding. He is a very good boy. I would have to look at his papers to see what it says because it is hard to read.
His registered name is Itsa Easy
Here is his pedigree
Itsa Easy Quarter Horse

why do they have this done? it looks cruel.

Its for identity, and also can be for anti theft, registering etc.

Poor thing!

Here in Sweden we put a "microchip" in the horses neck instead.

You can put a microchip in their neck too, but a lot of places don't have readers or don't use them even if they so it doesn't do a whole lot of good. Anyone can flip the lip up to look for a tatoo with no special device needed. Even better - a brand on the hip for all to see. I want to get mine freezebranded in the future.
