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.
