Proof of ownership... whats yours?

I was wondering what measures you guys have taken in securing your horses to your ownership should complications come up?
Things such as horse theft....ect.

I have taken photos of prominent scars, and unique markings on my 2 boys kinda as proof of my ownership.

My horses arnt insured as that's to expensive for me to afford, and neither is registered.

But just wondering what you guys do?

For most sales we have people sign a "Bill of Sale" which is basically a contract saying that the horse has been bought/sold, how much, etc. Plus all of my vet records/coggins papers/insurance have me as the owners. Hopefully questions of ownership never be a issue!

I have Denny's papers in my posession with my name on them as the owner. I also have a bill of sale.
The Jockey Club does an excellent description of body markings.
I also have a gazillion pictures of him.

In Florida when you get your coggins done you can get one where they take pics of your horse and put them on the coggins so theres no discrepancy not to mention the vet has a copy too. I've had to use it before and the police are the ones that told me it's the best way to do it besides getting your horse microchipped which isnt really that expensive it's only like $75 now.

TONS of pictures, bill of sale with photo included, documented vet bills, etc.

And boo of course is registered, so I have his registration papers

If you take pictures, be sure you and your barn are in them as well otherwise they can be viewed as just pictures of someone else's horse.

Registration papers are good but unless the horses are branded, they may be considered a look-alike. I like the idea of microchips but there needs to be a devise for the police or auction house to read it.

I have a bill of sale and his DNA and registration papers under my name.
