Googled 'texas prison horses' call a Dustin at 281 673 5217 for info on prison horses. Brands on left shoulder are a star and a single digit. Left hip if it was bred at the prison and that's the prison studs number. And left butt is for the unit it was used on..

Foal
I never noticed a line over the 16....but in the pictures, it looks like there might be... It doesn't exactly look like it in the newer pictures I have, but at the same time, I don't have many new pictures of that side of her. She has no brands on the other side...I don't think. But I'll post a few pictures of that side to see if maybe anyone finds anything I haven't seen before.

If I think I have a definite idea/possibility, I'd shave the spots, but not until it's warmer.

Foal
I'll definitely call tomorrow. But she doesn't have the star. So that's the biggest doubt in my mind. However, they do secretly sell to kill pens...so it's slightly possible. I'm glad you found a phone number because I was having absolutely no luck! I'm wondering if maybe she was a broodmare (if that's where she came from) and she wouldn't breed. Because when I got her, she was pregnant. Even though she wasn't supposed to be, and I didn't find out until 2 weeks before the baby was born.

Foal
Thank you! I bought her on the sheer fact that I got her to trust me enough to come up to me twice, because she didn't trust people at all. And she's turned out to be a really solid, safe horse. I'll post some newer ones here of the 16 to see if you can confirm if there's a line or not.
She DOES have a scar on her chest. So disregard that.
Just so you know it's of no importance lol

No bar on top.. could have been mussed hair..lol... instead of a 16 that could be a diagonal bar l 6 don't know if they allow that because it would be confusing. The article did say the horses all had the stars. And most had saddle sore/scars . Many mares would be brood mares.

Like I said... I'm going to call tomorrow. . If nothing else, maybe he's seen the brands somewhere else lol. But that's the biggest problem with the brand...knowing what it is to know what to look up. It's even crossed my mind to email every QH ranch and every brand inspector that I can get an email address for.... hoping it won't take that. .. but if I have to, I will

The Texas and southwestern Cattle raisers association is responsible in Texas for inspecting brands at auctions.
As Texasgal posted you have to know the county in Texas the brand is registered in to get any information.
I have a similar story about a mare I have posted about before. She has an 86 on her left shoulder and a 0 on her left hip.
There are plenty of ranches that raise foals for to sell as an additional crop. They go to auctions and where they end up is left to fate. With the continued drought conditions ranches are still sending excess horses to auctions to reduce their herds/
Question since I do not attend local auctions how does one know which horses are in the "kill" pen? Shalom

Oh and she looks almost identical to the mare that I have. Blaze faced and no other chrome. Mine was sent through the auction near dallas also.
I bet they came fromt he same place. Millie is well trained though. She also promptly delivered a foal.
Their stories sound awfully similar. Shalom

Usually the "kill pen" is a broad term. It depends on the auction house. With Camelot, there's one "feed lot" and the horses that don't sell privately there during their first sale or after, will run through the auction again next week, and if they didn't sell the first week, there's a good chance there's kill buyers looking to pick them off the next week for dirt cheap. At the New Holland auction, some horses go to kill buyers for as little as $10. Even big drafty, beginner safe horses.
At other auctions, kill buyers "rent" a pen inside or outside the auction to hold the horses they buy before they load up and head out, so those are also referenced as " kill pens" although by all technical means...the only dictionary-kill pen is the one outside the actual slaughter house. The technically correct term for the pens most people call kill pens at auctions are actually "feed lots". But that's about how it goes. Generally if you see someone buying up loads of horses for very little money, they're probably a kill buyer, and you just look for their horse pen. Generally, if you give them what they paid or more, it's not uncommon for them to re-sell what's in their pen before they load it on the trailer. They also typically tag the horses once again before they leave so they can tell who-is-who because there's so many.

If I missed anything, anyone else can feel free to add.
