Freeze Branding and Microchipping

BEMVS can offer freeze branding for horses using liquid nitrogen.  There is also a studbook registered stud brand (a simplified version of the logo) that is available to those who do not have their own stud brand.  As all branding (freeze and fire branding) is painful, the horse will be sedated and the appropriate area clipped and prepared for the application of the brand.  Freeze branding is more humane and provides a more aesthetically pleasing (white) brand on your horse as compared to fire branding.

Olivia is a registered microchip implanter and can insert a microchip into the correct location in your horse’s neck and scan the chip to ensure correct placement.  Registration of your microchip is also offered and there will be some paperwork to fill in.
