  1. Horse Breeds
    Hello all, new poster here. For a couple of months now, I've been trying to uncover the identity of my boy (with no success) and decided to come here for help. We've known each other nearly a year now, and I know in his previous home (a small TB farm over the road) he was used as a tether...
  2. Horse Protection
    I just had a horse microchipped when we were in at the vet yesterday ($60 for the chip and the implant fee, in case anyone is wondering). But this particular chip didn't come with registration into any database. What are the top databases to upload our information into? I emailed the breed...
  3. New to Horses
    I'm not sure which forum is the best match for this, so here goes. We're about to buy a horse that has a brand on his shoulder. The seller knows nothing about it. How would I go about identifying where this brand originated? The seller is in Nebraska, and says she got the horse from South...
  4. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hello everyone! I recently dug my mom's old saddle out of the garage and cleaned it up - out of curiosity I'm wondering if anyone would be able to identify the maker or age, since there's no discernible stamp or branding aside from the number (814) on the jockey. I've given it a good googling...

    My horse is branded, I've only had him for a year and he came from a kill pin. I need help reading his brands. Any and all help reading it is appreciated.
  6. Horse Talk
    I have a horse which I have owned for about three years now. She has a lip tattoo which I have not been able to decipher. I believe it reads 12Q7U. The vet who floated her teeth today said he was pretty sure she was Standardbred. I've checked various online sources, but haven't been able to...

  8. Horse Breeding
    This is my approx 7 yr old QH? gelding. He is a flaxen red dun with a blaze and 4 white legs. He was rescued as a yearling from a Colorado killpen. He came with the name "Ace" and the brand inspector said his brand was a Backwards "S" Lazy "J" before he left there. I am not the one who...
  9. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I'm going to sell my saddle because I've sadly outgrown it :( I bought it 5 or 6 years ago and I cant remember the name of the brand! It would be helpful to include the brand once I officially put it up for sale, right? It costed about $450-$500. I've attached a picture of what looks like the...

    This is my 6 year old SAID to be QH gelding. He came from Colorado. He was bought as a 1 1/2 year old from a meat buyer. He was going to go to Mexico for slaughter. His name was Ace. He is a flaxen red dun. He has all the dun markings. Shoulder shadowing, ear tips, dorsal, cobwebbing, leg...
  11. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I bought this saddle 2 years ago for $350. I cannot find a stamp/mark on this anywhere. I've lifted what was hidden, I can't find anything. I need to sell it asap to help with bills. I was told it was a Wade(something) made in Oregon??
  12. Horse Colors and Genetics
    I always thought I understood the difference of a bay and brown. Lately though, I have been seeing many horses that I would call bay that are being termed as brown. I am very open minded and have learned many things and want to know what the difference is. I will share with you pictures of all...
  13. Horse Breeds
    I got two horses in January for free. The lady was a little weird and they weren't in the best of shape (Were slightly skinny, scares, and rain rot) but I really wanted them. Since then they have gained some weight and lost their winter coats, hence leading to the discovery of an Oldenburg in my...
