When registering a horse, its owner must note what kind of marking is on the animal’s head – for identification.

“Wrench” isn’t one of them.
This spring’s foaling season recently produced a Payneville filly that looks like a Craftsman ad. When registering it, owner Amanda Hudson plans to take a combo approach: stripe/star/snip.
