I am fixing to do a group brand. A lady outside raliegh charges $50 per horse. Discounts for multi horses and she will travel She can do about 3 or 4 an hour.

I think this is much better than miccro chipping or tatoos, simply because you can positively ID your horse from a distance and public road. Where as I feel microchipping is pretty worthless. If your horse gets loose, pretty much everyone in the area will know its yours and wont be any need to scan it. If it is stolen the thieves arnt going to scan it and there is noway for anyone else to ID your horse if they do see it.
A net posse and web postings of stolen or lost horses with a brand is easy for anyone to understand and positively identified.

What would be better , LOST BROWN HORSE WITH A "4d" BRAND ON SHOULDER.
LOST, BROWN HORSE WITH A MICROCHIPP.

My Mums horse was done and he is a Appaloosa and we where concerned about it too.
But it turned out great and he has white and chestnut hairs I might be able to upload a photo sometime soon of it.
You could also just do a bald brand that makes the hair where they got branded go bald
Hope this helped xxx

Yes Exaclty ! And something that is visible is much better theft prevention in my opinion and you can always prove it rather then get a vet out to scan a horses neck lol!
Plus brands don't move around like chips sometimes can .

I am for branding.
Yeah its pretty incredible what people can get upset about now days.
I don't understand it what would they rather my horse get freeze branded or not get her freeze branded and she gets stolen :/

I like my mustang's brand. It shows up well with the white hairs on her dark red neck. I like stroking her there, and feeling connected to her past that way. She's a good girl.
