I've started working with a paint horse who has 2 sizable brands on both sides of his butt (the old fashion kind, not a freeze brand). They weren't done well and brands in general are just not that acceptable in the hunter/jumper world! Anyone have any ideas on how to make them less noticable? I'm thinking they aren't going to go away.... but does anyone think MTG or something might help at all?
Two of our horses were branded at one point. The brands on our 20 year old gelding are as present now as they ever were. I don't know if there is much you can do about it. I can't imagine that you will be marked negatively because of brands. A lot of stock type horses have been branded, and I am sure people will know that there is nothing you can do about it.
