I misunderstood. I thought it was brand on horse not papers. My posting is out of sync with the issue.

What were the rules of the auction ? Maybe they sent you the wrong horse or the wrong papers ? I would be contacting them and asking them to correct the situation.
If nothing is done, and you don't want to transfer the papers to your name, contact the
AQHA and let them know that this auction is selling horses without the correct papers.

To add a brand to match the papers is dishonest.

It could be an auction error, or the breeder switched the papers. I tend to believe that latter.

So, I contacted auction and they contacted seller.
Was an oversight on the sellers part as per their reply to the auction. I have two options- to correct the papers or be supplied with the brand...
But being supplied with the brand once again brings us back to "branding a horse to match the papers"... which is a feeling of dishonesty unless I verify the dna prior to the branding process.

Does the breeder have the DNA evidence? A brand is such a great way of protecting yourself, should your horse in the future be stolen. Heaven forbid, But...

I would ask the seller to pay for the DNA test, if the dna comes back to match the horse you have, then I would ask that the seller supply a letter stating that they never did get around to branding the horse and pay for the correction on the papers.
I would insist on a DNA test , a new one, to make sure you have the correct horse.

He has a DNA case number on his papers, but I think I may have to proceed with contacting AQHA to have another DNA test done in order to be sure I have the correct horse. In the meantime... I am trying to decide now if I should proceed with getting him branded or ammend the papers and remove the brand. Any thoughts?
I feel a brand helps trace lineage if he should ever lose his papers in the future, but also feel that it is not a process I want to have to hire someone to do. I do however pick the horse up from the trainer at the end of the month- do I make an appt with breeder to stop there for his branding prior to heading home with him? So many decisions and scenarios to consider.

It is a misrepresentation for the previous owner (seller) to fill out the horse's papers WITH a brand, and not have branded the animal. I suggest that you ask him to pay for this. I would want my animal branded.

DNA test should be done before papers or horse is done to "match"! IMO AQHA would frown on someone wanting to remove a designated peice of identification from the papers!!!! Have a blessed day!
