I got this mare in December 2012. The guy who I got her from *seemed* to know a bit about her. But I'm really questioning all of that now. He told me she was 6 years old, but I was told by the vet she is closer to 10 or older.
I have taken an interest in her brand and finding out where she actually came from.
I have been told that branded horses are also typically registered? I'm really not too concerned about if she is registered or not, but I would like to just figure out some back history on her... such as how she came to that guy who took awful care of her and almost ruined her feet, and how she got the scar around her nose.
I also live in Texas. We do brand registry by County. So that makes it pretty tough to search for a brand...since I don't know what county she came from, or if she is from Texas. I figure Texas is a good place to start looking though.
I'm not sure how to read the line underneath the SRD (or is it 5RD ??)
Any ideas on this brand? It is the only one on her.
And here is a picture of her when I got her in Dec for anybody who is interested
