    A quick Google search ...

    Polish Warmblood (Wielkopolski)

    Polish foals born in a national stud farm have a numerical brand under the saddle:
    The right side is the number of stud farm.
    The left side is the foal's number.
    Foals from private breeders (regional breeding) are branded on the left leg (thigh)
    There is a world
    Just around the corner of your mind
    Where reality is an intruder
    And dreams come true.

    Get him scanned for a microchip! I bet he has more than one!

    I have a cob with Danish chip and one Irish chip so it's something I'm am fairly aware of. It could be a case that his passport was lost and it was cheaper to re-register him and get a white book, or they wanted to change his age etc.

    I have never, ever seen a branded Irish horse.

    Thank you - it had never occurred to me that he might have come from Poland. Next time I have the vet out I'll ask him to bring the scanner, so far only the passport chip has turned up but who knows! I'll have to have a dig around and see if I can find out more.

    Interesting about the Polish branding as my girl is a Malopolski (another polish warmblood type) and came fully passported with all of her breeding registered, but isn't branded.

    She came from a non state breeder.

    OP - if you do find another chip and manage to get more information you might be able to find out more on the Polish stud database:
