THR, it was pretty scary the past couple of days. Tuesday was especially hairy. We could see flames from our house.

We had to evacuate from the Rodeo/Chediski fire of many years back. I think it was 2002 or 2003. We were out of our home for 11 days and we had to leave the horses on a friend's pasture because we didn't have a truck/trailer. One of my friends pulled some strings and got a guy to come over and get them after we evacuated (they won't let you back in) and they could only catch one of our three horses.

Thank God our neighborhood didn't completely go up in flames. A couple travel trailers/mobiles were lost but by and large the neighborhood was saved. And the horses were fine. A neighbor that didn't leave was throwing them hay. But gosh, is that a scary, awful feeling. Not knowing if your horses are still alive and if your house is still standing. Just don't leave until you get your horse out or you won't be able to get back in.

You need to make your own brand up and register it with the State or local brand registry. Then have him branded and it is recorded and a legal form of ownership even in another state.
Get all the vet paperwork and take a lot of pictures. You don't need a registry to prove you own the horse. All that proves is the fact one owner paid a fee to record the genetic history of the horse.
I have resuced or purchased more than a few horses that were registered yet the paperwork did not reflect the true owner of the horse. A brand and a bill of sale will though. Shalom

I did the idea of branding him intriguing, dbarabians.

How would I brand him? Freeze brand or hot brand? Who would I get to help me?

The only horse I've seen that was "self-branded" by the owner was a paint mare I rode in high school. Her previous owner had formed a "branding iron" using a wire coat hanger, heated it to red-hot, then branded the mare. It not only looked awful, it was extremely painful (according to the lady who owned her).

First you need to develop and register the brand.
Freeze branding is more humane IMO and more noticeable. There are people that make those brands and vets that can freeze brand I am told.
We use a hot brand on our cattle and horses here that the farm owns. Only because that is what we have. Our brand is unique and has been used by my family for over a century and a half. I have yet to brand an arabian or TB that I own. You might want to look into tatooing. The Jewish prohibition about that carries over into my animals as well. I find the practice repulsive. Its just been ingrained in my head as an act of mutilation.
With the slaughter houses opening though I am considering it. Most of the arabians are wary of strangers but a couple will approach any human. I have been noticing a lot of missing horse ads lately. A locked gate will only keep lazy thieves out.
Contact your state and find out what you must do to register a brand. Then go from there. Shalom

You don't need to brand to get him brand- inspected and in your name.
Look up " your" brand inspector and ask

Just wanted to share the info regarding proof of ownership in Arizona that I got from my best friend. She called the sheriff's department to ask during the fire because she was literally a half mile from the front of it. Here's what she found out.

In the state of Arizona, all you have to have to prove ownership of a horse is a fairly recent photograph of the horse (preferably with you riding or in the picture, at least) and a signed, notorized affidavit from at least one person stating that you own the horse.
