She is somewhere around 17hh, havent gotten the tape out to get a weight, but she has lost lots of weight since we got her (pobably 300 lbs or so)-she isnt just standing in front of a round bale anymore and has some work to do. She is a PMU rescue foal from North Dakota. If anyone can figure out where exactly her brand is from, I would appreciate it. I have done a little research, and can't find anything. Sorry about the poor quality of the photos. You can see the size difference between her and my Reg. Paint (appendix) Blitz.
Any way you can get a closer picture of the brand?
I checked North Dakota's registered brands, there is one that might be it, but I think the angle of the arrow is more pointed up in the registered brand, where I can't say for sure but it looks like the arrow on yours goes straight out horizontally. Name on that brand is:
ANDERSON, CLARK O.
&or KAJSA LOUISA AMALIA
16579 CTY RD 9
It might also be a brand that was registered at the time and has since fallen into disuse - it might be worth contacting the stockman's association and getting the brand book for the year the mare was born or maybe her yearling year, to see if the brand was registered then.
Then again, it might have just been a private brand they never registered as well, if they didn't have cattle.
