Does anyone know these brands?

My ranch horse was foaled in Gillette Wyoming, (Campbell county). The lower brand is registered on his pedigree before he turned one. The freeze brand is NOT on his paper which means he got it after he turned one. The brands are on his left hind leg. I wanted to know where he came from. I live in New York so he traveled a long way.

Does anyone know of these brands or any websites with the brand registry. I already checked out cowboyshowcase.com and i could not find anything for Wyoming.

I am from Wyoming. The Wyoming Livestock Board sells their brand books, but the following site claims to have a listing of registered brands.

Official brand book of the state of Wyoming, showing all the brands on cattle, horses, mules, asses and sheep, recorded under the provisions of the act approved February 18th, 1909, and other brands recorded up to October 11th, 1912 : Board of Live S

If you don't have luck there. Get me a photo of your brand and I can run to the library next week and go through the brand books. Your link didn't work for me at this time. I'll try later. I may even recognize the brand if your horse is from a large outfit. But, really everyone here, just about, has a brand.

Brands get sold to new owners, too. I was able to see your photo. I'll do what I can to find the current owner of it.

I like that link I gave you. I'm going to have fun looking at it.

I didn't find your brands after a quick look, but will definitely check the brand books at the library this week during a lunch.

Some stylized brands are ever registered. Just put on because the owner thinks it's a western thing to do.

On the link I provided you can look by names in addition to researching through the brands. It is at the back of the "book." I downloaded the PDF.

Then those are unregistered brands. Decorative only.

I suppose there is a slight possibility that the brands are registered in NV. Gillette, Newcastle, and Elko all have a pretty transient population of energy workers. So, it might be they brought their irons with them and just haven't bothered to register.

Sorry that I can't help you any further. I just wanted to chime in and say that I think that your horse's brands are cute. :) Good luck in finding out more about your horse, I'm in the same boat there.

Are you sure the brand is from wyoming?
If so, you can usually check brand registry using the Department of Ag's website through your state :)

That is how I tracked Drifter's brand. Good luck!!
