A lot of people aren’t sure what they need, or don’t need for a brand inspection. I am going to cover what is needed for an in state inspection, and an out of state inspection (from a state that doesn’t do inspections). I talked to the brand board to make sure I got all info needed so you have no questions left! First to clarify any confusion; you MUST get a brand inspection (proof of ownership) in Colorado whether the horse has a brand or not; or you are not considered the legal owner of the horse. There is no alternative here.
