    haha I'd just use the brand when I have my barn full of champs ;)

    Brands are always great for theft. We actually have a lot of that going on around here!

    Allie If you wanted to get a costume brand you would have to go to the Brand Inspector.

    All my horses are microchipped but I wouldn't mind getting a branding done on them as well. I don't know if it is possible to get them done.

    Branding, I know how to do it.
    Microchip, you need a special tool to read it. And a person just look can't tell.
    Freeze breeding don't know enough about to say.

    I would definitely go with freezebranding, it is really painless and turns the hair white on the brand by killing off the pigment to the hair follicle. Most registries who use freeze branding for identifying a horse use the alpha angle system, which is a system of branding a horse that can never be altered. It only uses numbers, and a symbol of the breed of the horse usually. The first symbol is the breed symbol, the second is a number, one number on top of the other, this is the year of birth of the horse. Then the registraion number to the animal. Some people freezebrand their own "symbol" on their horses but using the alpha angle system is the best way to do it, and on the left side of the neck. If this is a show horse, some breeds do not allow this kind of branding and will count against you for a horse having one.
