9-2-06 Saturday
A nice day, dog days of summer, lots of flies, and bees. A haze covering the valley. Feeling kinda of lazy. Got a few things done but nothing special. Should have gone out and rode my horse. Meeting some friends for dinner and going on the boat tomorrow. Would have like to have ridden, but had to buy hay and move the dinging out of the loft. Picked up ground apples, picked some blackberries, talked with freinds........................... A good day.

Brands on Horses

Have you ever sold a horse at an auction? Have you ever owned a horse with a brand ?
Well, in many years of owning horses, showing, gaming, riding in drill teams I have never been introduced to this whole thing. But since I sold Rosa last Sunday I have learned a lot!
WHAT I'VE LEARNED: If you have a horse or want to buy or sell a horse that has a brand it has to have it on it's papers. If you sell a horse with a brand at an auction they impound the money until the party who owns the brand give a release to the state that impounded the money from the sale of the horse. Other wise the money stays with the state and at the end of the year the owner of the brand can take the money from the sale of the horse.
