Brand celebration

I asked readers on the Braymere Custom Saddlery Facebook page to share pictures of their mustangs' brands.

I was thinking 1:9 scale...

but a few people sent pictures of their full scale mustang's brands.

Lexie Lawrynovicz's mustang Salty's brand looks like it was written with invisible ink. So cool!
On the other end of the spectrum, this is Shelly Nelson's much missed mustang Sijin. She came from the Red Desert in Wyoming and had a "messed up" freeze brand.
Her portrait model, also by Shelly.
Here are a few more model scale freeze brands. This one was painted by Christine Lewis,
this by Erika Baird Xochimitl...
and this by T. J. Hurst.
Last but not least, here's one from my own collection. This is my first real completed custom. I did the resculpting and Cindy Evans supplied the finishwork.
Thank you so much to everyone who contributed photos. I really enjoyed seeing all your brands.


  1. This is such a cool post! I especially love the weird ways brands turn out on real horses that were included

    1. Dangit I hate when I accidentally post anonymous. Thank you again for a great post
