    Microchips are easily fried with throw away cameras.

    Few police depts have scanners here. Nobody knows a thing about branding. By law our town clerks are supposed to keep a record of brands but the 2 clerks I asked about it had no idea what I was talking about.

    I had a saddle stolen along with some assorted pads and girths that were perched on top of it. I doubt I will ever see it again but I still look at every similar saddle.

    Same as my view as microchipped horses.

    I believe it only comes in handy if there is a dispute in ownership.

    My horse is microchipped because I don't ever want someone claiming she is theirs or that they bought her from me, etc. She is not branded, so I opted for a microchip. It's a cheap "just-in-case."

    None of my tack is expensive so I couldn't imagine doing that, personally.

    Joe, the insurance companies want $20 per hundred value but if it's taken from a locked car, it's covered under contents. So that's where my saddle lived in the back of the suburban.

    I appreciate the input. That's why I put it out there. When a saddle comes into the shop my initials are stamped into the tree or leather with a small sharp screwdriver in an inconspicuous place- just a little extra ID. I also take pics for my own use, but if anyone needs pics of theirs I have them.
