Does no one think about those POOR mustaags and cows that have had this done for many years? And the cowboys' horses "back in the day"?
Well, they lived. And I don't think it caused them long term harm.
Plus, in freeze branding the hair grows back, just white, which I think is easier to see.
But I'm not going to petition hotbranding. Its kinda like people petitioning meat. It ain't never going to happen. Its a way of life. Course if the horse if white/grey, that may not show too well.
Also, lip tatooing. It's probably not comfy at all for a horse, but its done for thoroughbreds and it only causes momentary pain.
