Then she said they do also register freeze brands on the neck for the BLM and the Saddlebreds. Then she put me on hold to ask someone as she was contridicting herself. I was then told they have no brands listed for the '7-6' for this state.
Only 49 more states to go!

@ Rookie ...Yes! He is a wonderful, middle aged dude who come to me from the back pasture when I call him and perfect for my novice Finance who is 6'3" and needs a big horse. When we are out with him he does prefer me so he is a Ladies horse. He likes to smell my face and hair and is very loving.
It's the history mystery that has me stumped! If he is a retired trotter are his knees shot? Or if he is an old TWH is his suspension going out?! <3

If he is a trotter I would not worry about his knees. If he spent a lot of time at the track or was raced hard then his hocks would be the potential issue. Whether he is sound will depend more how hard he was used. If he was only the cost of an AC condition I am guessing you did not get a pre purchase. I would have a vet out to do a lameness examination. They would have a better idea based on how he moves.
