Horse Name Change?

Recently, I purchased a Mustang mare who was apart of Mustang Mania about 2 years ago. Her current name is not very desirable for a Mustang in my opinion and I've been wanting to change it, but I wasn't sure what the rules were as she was a part of the BLM. I believe she's registered under that name, but I can't find anything on how to change the name or if I need to contact BLM.
Thank you!

I thought BLM registered by freeze-brand number, not name. No?

Pretty sure you're correct they are freeze branded with numbers...not a name.

Out riding my horse.

That's what I thought but I wasn't if they were tracked by their names as well. Thank you

If she's your horse, I can't see why you couldn't change her name, regardless of registration with anyone or anything else. But perhaps she's not yours, it's a foster thing or some such. Then you can still name her whatever you feel like, but not change it on any papers without permission.
