    I just got a new dog and if it works out I might just freeze brand her! I'll have to talk to the vet about that.

    I will probably definitely have her chipped in case she just escapes and wonders off...

    That's happened before, its a funny story.... Neighbors found her and just tied her to their telephone pole and when we came along, the little kids were upset and crying cause they wanted to keep her... later, they got the kids a horse!!! It's sweet!!

    But I want something obvious that people can see from far off in case she is stolen... That way if someone is claiming they just bought her or something, or the auctions see it, they can call or whatever and I'll get her back.

    Call your state department of agriculture and they can tell you what the requirements are.

    Is freeze branding painful for the horse?

    It can be slightly uncomfortable for them because of the cold but it is not painful.

    They work well because they are very open.

    I got my last ASH freeze branded as he wasn't registered when I bought him, but we registered him. It's a requirement here that all registered horses are branded. It was easy - They gave him somesedative, shaved his shoulder with a razor blade, and went ahead and did it. It was bizarre, it looked like when you push a seal into wax, and then as it cooled it inverted and the letters stodd out, and then as it healed it scabbed over and then finally the scabs dropped off and it was fine. His was very clear.

    My boy now has horrible brands - They just look like a mangled blob. They are meant to say LP on one side and 2/3 on the other. However, I have seen others from the same stud and the LP worked fine, so I think it was just his case.

    The brands the BLM use are symbols and not really letters or numbers. I'm sure a google search will yield some results about what they mean then you can contact the BLM and get duplicate papers on him.
