Oh very cool. Friends of mine are going to get their horses freeze branded and I didn't know what to think. I like them...

Yes I am excited to see how they turn out! Can't wait for 3 months to go buy lol.

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

I know nothing about branding so this maybe a totally stupid question but why did you brand all the horses on the right side expect Polly who you did on the left?

It seems like the way you went about it was as kind/gentle as possible. :)

It isn't a stupid question we actually debated where we should put Pollys brand as she has her breeders brand on her RH which is where are brand is placed obviously. But we have all 4 corners (R-H, R-SH, L-H, L-SH) as we also have paints and you never know where the color might be.

So we debated whether to put it on the shoulder or the LH and went back and forth for a good week before the branding. Then we got together today before branding her and talked and looked and placed the brand and decided it would look best on the LH.

Do you have any pictures of a healed brand (after 3 months) so we can see what they look like.

That makes sense thanks, Learn something new everyday, Never thought about that with paints but I guess you do need options :)

I have seen a freeze brand on a black horse and the hairs of the brand were white. What happens on a white or grey horse??
