Tracing a brand
Hi everyone,
I recently purchased an older Quarter Horse to retire him from a hack line. He has a brand on his left hip: a capital L over a bar with a 7 underneath. I'm wondering if there is any way to trace brands? I would like to trace his heritage and let his prior owners know he has found a good final home. I know this may be a hopeless search,but if anyone has any ideas or recognizes this brand please let me know.

if anyone knows how to track brands id love to find out too, cutter has either a arrow pointing up or a mushroom on his left hip

Do you know what state, he came form orginally, the state ag department has a record of all brands as does the AQHA, if they had approved the brand. If they didn't you can use both to match the branmd with the former owner.

No I have no idea where he originally came from, and he didn't come with any papers so I don't know if he was ever registered. Kind of a needle in a haystack deal I guess. Thanks for the suggestions.
