View Full Version : Thoroughbred branding

Hi there I was just wondering about TB branding (in NZ). whose branding irons do we use? (we privately own the filly). Also do we have to register her before branding? the filly is 7mths old and to be weaned soon. I know that we have to brand her before she is weaned.
Thanks for any help i can get!

Hi, You should contact the governing racing body in NZ. As far as I know, your filly will need to be freeze branded and blood tested (DNA) before she can be registered/named with a racing authority. Just check with the NZ Stud Book.
