Brand Question (don't know where else to put it)
 
My mom's quarter horse has this freeze brand on his left shoulder, just the number 209 and I don't have any pictures but it's written really plain, nothing special
I don't know the chances but I was just wondering if anyone knows what a brand like that might mean, I never see any talk about just a number like that so it makes me curious.


Thank you,
Rachel

Lol wow that could mean anything.

Could be the number representing which foal he was at some farm.....like hes the 209th foal born in that farm...but then usually there is a logo on the other shoulder for the farm and a couple other numbers representing the year...so just the one number is kinda weird.

Could also be that if he was at a stock yard sale, just his number in a crowd of what would have been a hell of alot of horses for sale.

Unusual tho.
Im not sure what it would be for really.....just guessing :shock:

It is usually the stud brand that goes on the left shoulder, telling you where she is from. Normally there are numbers on the right shoulder eg 10 over 89 this would mean that the horse is the tenth foal born in 1989. If she does not have the other brands then it may be that she was the only foal bred for the owner
