"Tessa" is a beautiful, almost solid bay (bay to turn grey) filly out of our foundation mare -- FS Betty Grable (Padrons Psyche x Kj Kalayla (*Karadjordje)). Tessa will be retained by Penny Lane Arabians as a replacement for her incredible nineteen year-old dam. Sol Debut went two-for-two for fillies this year...

Permanent, Visible Identification?
I know this has been asked before, but......
What is or can be done to identify our horses permanently and visibly? I'm asking this again in light of the recently rescued herd of solid black/no markings horses in north Texas and all other rescued horses that can not be identified, even the bay mare on the rescue & rehoming thread on this forum. Also, I recently bought a grey mare that will eventually be solid white and has only one white fetlock.
I don't think microchipping is necessarily the best solution because not every organization has a scanner, and even then, to scan for which company's chip?
Blood typing/DNA also has its limits because apparently it can only be used to determine parentage or eliminate incorrect parentage. It would be so much better if DNA could be just thrown into the system and Volia! a match just pops up (like on the TV crime shows).
Sooo that leaves branding.
I personally wish that somehow the system of freeze branding with the registration number could be reinstated. I have checked with a man here in Colorado that the brand inspector recommended. Basically he said that he has a permit on a Colorado-registered brand that goes on the hip and/or shoulder but does not identify the horse. There is a record of these horses, but it isn't readily available to the public. He also said that he has a set ot 2 inch high (regular) numbers that he could freeze brand my mare with up under her mane. He also said that he was personally acquainted with the inventor of the marking system used by Kyro Kinetics, and would see what he could find out.
I read recently that Sheila Varian plans to brand her horses with her trademark V on the hip. Most likely any horses from her farm could be identified from farm records.
I have tried to contact Kyro Kinetics and had no response whatsoever.
