Please help me decipher my horses lip tattoo!
I'm trying to find out more information about my horse, however I do not have his papers. He has a tattoo though!

1. Where do I look up the tattoo number in the first place? Once I find it out I'd love to look it up if anyone can provide a link for me or something. He's an Appendix QH. So he's not straight thoroughbred.

2. We know the first three digits are absolutely 2, 9, 4. I can't figure out the rest, it's very smudgy. I'm posting it in this section of the forum as it is popular and I feel like I can get a lot of different eyes to look at it so that I can maybe punch in a few different different combinations to see what we can come up with.

Here's the picture raw:

Here's me tracing over the numbers I do know and the two I'm unsure of. The last digit looks like an N, And it's clearer in life and this was the clearest picture I could snap but it's slightly clearer in real life:

Thanks a ton guys! Any help is good :)

Looking at it closer, the last character looks kind of like a symbol, like a screwed up H.

I'd also like to add I contacted the registry via email with those two pictures attached, my interpretation of the numbers, and all the information I could give about my horse. I don't want to fill in the form and pay if I can't tell them the numbers. The form doesn't allow picture attachment. Do you think they'll get back to my email ever?

Too bad he's not straight TB - their partial look-up is fantastic. Try taking the horse into a dark area and use light (preferably a black-light) to highlight the characters
