    I have a second generation mustang, his mother was gathered in Nevada and he was born later so doesn't have the brand. He could be mustang or part mustang, I don't think there's any real way of knowing.. maybe a dna test?

    This particular organization keeps photos of every horse on the range not just the ones gathered and they have been extremely nice and helpful.
    I obviously missed the part about the brand in you original post. Sorry!

    Interesting! I did not know there were herds with that much color. Mostly what one sees regarding these horses are the buckskins, duns and variations.
    Sorry I can't help with any info but I appreciate this thread. I have learned something today. Good luck with your search!

    Every color and conformation imaginable are out there on the BLM range! Also available in the holding pens for adoption.

    My cremello has a brand on his hip, and it's actually more obvious in the winter than in the summer. I think it's because it's easier to see the lack of hair (they hold it on there long enough to kill the hair follicles for white horses) in the pattern of a long, winter coat than in a short, summer coat. I gave him a trace clip last winter that went over the brand and it was nearly invisible.

    If you couldn't see a trace of it in the winter coat, there's probably not one there.

    Summer:

    I know you meant generally speaking instead of Genitally..haha! Anyway, I have a mustang and the vet without knowing he was a mustang put down that he was a QH cross, so alot of times unless you see the brand, you don't know it's a mustang. I have seen another horse that I recognized as a mustang by the shape of his head and features and then was happy when his breed was confirmed!
