I was very business like with the other three horses,
But when it came to Beauty darling it was a whole different story,
I actually started crying a little as you can probably tell with me not facing the camera much and burying my face in her neck..
I have never been so emotionally attached to any horse as I am to my Beauty darling.
I love how she is a one girl horse and she does not like to share me just as I don't like sharing her lol ;) (Because I don't want other people riding to hurt her or confuse her in anyway)
Why I got my Girls branded and I insisted on getting them branded was because
Its for identification and theft protection.
As the people and subscribers of mine will know I would NEVER do anything intentional to hurt my girls Especially not my Beauty,
This is freeze branding it actually NUMBS The skin, And then freezes it rather then Burning the skin (hot branding that is very painfull)
Yes it Is much more expensive but it is VERY worth it as it truly is painless
The horses where also Sedated Yes sedated not injected with any Barbiturates (Paralyzing agent) I have researched Barbiturates and I would Never allow them to be injected into my ponies to force them to stand still.
As you can clearly see they where SEDATED as they can move but there very sleepy and relaxed and Beauty even has her back leg rested is some of the photo's.
And when it came to branding none of them even flinched and if that was a hot brand even if they where sedated they would have at least tried to move away flinching rather then fall asleep in my arms. We could have got a very cheap person to come out who would not have sedated them but rather TWITCHED them into submition but because I did not want it to at all be a fearful experience we got a veterinarian out to do it, And I would not have wanted it done any other way yes it was more $$ But they are more then worth it,
Why did I decide to save up and freeze brand?
Because in my family we have had more then 5 horses stolen through out the years all of winch where not microchiped or Branded.
I would of hated to go to the paddock and not see her one day,
And knowing that if I ever did see her again it could be at a dogger sale or at a person's place and there would be no way to prove she was mine. (So I could get her back)
So I decided to get it all done and I did and looking back I would not change a thing.
I think what I did was the best for her,
And if you want to go ahead and dislike the video well its a shame you dislike the fact she got freeze branded .
But the whole reason she got freeze branded in the first place was because I would dislike a whole lot more her getting loaded on some dogger truck and not being able to do anything about it.
And I feel a whole lot better know that I wen't ahead and got it all done and its for her own good in the long run and there was no pain involved.
So I'm very proud of ourselves for getting it all done when we did.
And I encourage all other horse owners to do the same as it just might save a whole lot of regret in the long run.
