Subbing. What an interesting mystery!

OH! You might also be able to get him DNA tested and send the results to AWS to see if there's any matches. Maybe :/

If the breed has to be inspected I would call the brand inspector. They may have a record. I would look for other identifying brands/tattoos. I think it would be odd to have a registry and inspection required without also requiring a permanent identification number.

Its also possible that something happened to his original owner ie accidental death or injury that resulted in harsh feelings toward said horse, thus they sold the horse. I know someone who boards a horse that was a lovely talented hunter, his rider was jumping sans helmet and fell off. The rider died, and the family has neither the heart to sell the horse or the desire to ride it. Thus they pay a set amount each month and board it a state away.

Does he have a lip tatoo by chance?

Subbing. Totally strange that a horse like that would end up in a slaughter house!

I don't know if this helps. Someone on facebook posted this. I know it isn't every Brand out there but maybe it helps others with questions on their brands.

Just goes to show that even well bred horses end up in the kill pen. Yet another reason why mediocre horses should not be bred.

I did contact the AWS with pictures and such, they said he does not match any reports of "ill will", but that i could get him DNA tested. And yes, those standards do reach 8 foot. Only that pair though. They use that set usually to free jump their grand prix horses and 2 of the stallions. It was the only oxer set that was out because almost all the horses are currently at a show in Colorado. We made due with what we could. But i appreciate the doubting ey?
