Cold branding

Tina McCord holds a branding iron to the front shoulder of ItchyTina McCord holds a branding iron to the front shoulder of Itchy, a 14 year old Appaloosa belonging to Katrina and Ronnie Easterling. To cold brand, a spot on the horse is shaved, the area is rubbed with oil, then with rubbing alcohol, and the brand is applied for 15-20 seconds. When the hair grows back, it will come in either in light or dark, opposite of the horse’s coloring.
