I've tried researching the brand my Morgan cross gelding has on his hind quarter. I can't find anywhere online how to contact the state, It goes to the University of Vermont website (Equine Law). Do I just contact them? I was told he was from NY but we are in Michigan, so could there be a nationwide contact?
Thanks, I didn't mean to hijack thread but I was going to post this anyway.

I personally think it is cruel to brand horses . Imagine if they did it to you.

^^That's why freezebranding is becoming so popular. It doesn't hurt them.

What about branding cattle? They brand them so they can be easily identified if they are stolen. Horses are livestock so, why not brand them too? Sure its going to be uncomfortable but I think the benefits make it worth it.

Sorry I just get annoyed when people have the " omg poor we lil ponys" attitude...
