Mustang Horses

My name is Courtney

in 2010 I bought 3 mustang from this wild horse and burro center in cross plains TN . When I got there I was so excited about buying a mustang after reading and seeing them on tv I just knew that I had to get one !! Well when I got there it was like walking into a dog pond all this horses needing a good loving home . So I ended up buying 2 mares and 1 gelding . Well I was singing papers and the woman told me that they DID NOT brand the horses that instead they put in micro chips in their necks didn't think any thing of it . So I was just wondering if any of yall had an answer for me on why they have micro chip instead a freeze brand ..

thanks so much

Huh. This makes me really curious because I thought all mustangs rounded up by the BLM were freeze-branded. How were they when you got them? Wild, handled, broke?

See I thought the same thing I thought all BLM mustang was branded but all the horses and burros was not they said it was easier to track down the horses if the gotten stolen and it was easier for them to read the numbers .. I was young and stupid and I didn't think anything about it


All the horses and donkeys was keep in decent sized round pens but they was full of horses . I mean you couldn't handled any of them . They just threw hay out watered them and that was it . When they load up the horses that I bought they used whips and a chute

BLM does freeze brand. There are other smaller groups that take in wild mustangs and burros that are held on privately owned property. I would guess that the horses you looked at came from there. BLM can only take care of horses held on federal land, think state forests, and parks. Horses that are on private property or indian reservations are not rounded up by the government.
