Since I only get to see Izzy's brand for a few weeks in the summer, I always forget how to read it. I know that the bridge represents the Zweibrücker bridge of the RPSI which tells us that he is registered with the RPSI in Germany. That means that the beginning of his registration number is 51.
- The DE means Germany.
- The 4 means he was born after 2000.
- The 51 refers to his breeding district (born in the USA but registered with the RPSI).
- The 5162736 is his personal registration number.
- The 36 is the number branded on his hip below the bridge.
- The 08 indicates his year of birth - 2008.
I think it's a pretty interesting system. I only wish that I could see his brand all year long.
