the brandmark JP at a Pottok-ponie

He explained us the reason of the different letter combinations
in the brandmarks of the Pottok ponies
that we have seen at the pottok judge in Ascain.
The first letter represents the owner of the horse,
and the second letter is for the name of the house in which he lives.
For example, the brand JP means:
J is for the owner named Jean Pierre,
P is for the house Pellow Borda.
