    On light colored (light palomino's, grays, roans that are really white, etc) horses, what they do is leave the brand on longer and completely kill the hair follicle...so that no hair grows back in at all. So, instead of white hair on a dark horse, what you see is the dark skin on a light horse....

    Not the most ideal example as it was a quickie brand done by the BLM, but you can see the result of the freezebrand on my gray horse.

    Sorry I meant to get back to you lol! No it would not show up on greys unless you held it on long enough to kill the hair completely so it would come back as a "bald brand".

    We've been considering branding ours, but wasn't sure where we could get it done or if there were people that come out and do it. We want to brand our lifelong horses to be better identified in case of theft or, god forbid, they get out and are found.

    I'm new to the whole branding thing so forgive me if this is a stupid question....
    Can't you just micro chip a horse like you do a dog? Why don't people or do they?

    Oh and nice pics by the way for all of us who have never seen the process.

    You can but unless you have a micro chip reader, and you know that the horse has one - or where to look even if you do - it isn't easily spotted.

    You can't miss a brand and it has saved many stolen horses.
    smrobs and SpiritLifter like this.

    People do but you have to be in a area where the vets have the chip reader and such. And around here we don't have that for horses. I would much rather have a identifying mark that people can see and keep the honest theafs honest. And having brands has saved a lot of stolen horses because the recognize the brand. It is also good if your horse isn't papered and is used as a proof of ownership.
