I found the California brand book online and have been browsing through it. So far, everything is a lot more elaborate than just a circle.
Right after I got him I actually ran into a brand inspector and asked him a couple of questions. He told me that sometimes these types of brands come from the midwest off huge ranches that raise horses and aren't registered. They're just for use on that ranch to help identify groups of horses among the thousands. Who knows if that's the case here, but it was kind of interesting to hear about. :)
