KBR Wild Horse and Burro Information Sheet


The BLM has to have a process of identifying and keeping track of the wild horses, burros and mules which fall within its jurisdiction. Since these animals are not usually freezemarked unless they are gathered for adoption, a code is used where the animals' sex and visible features can be cataloged using a series of letters and numbers.

Patty Thomas' horse, CJ, has a signalment key of HG1DEBEFB. Using the key codes below, can you describe him?

How did you do?

To see what CJ really looks like, click Here!.


STAR, STRIP and SNIP is a merging of these three marks.
BLAZE is a broad, white marking covering almost all of the forehead but not including the eyes and nostrils.
BALD is a white face including the eyes and nostrils.

This is not a BLM operated or BLM sponsored site. It is run by private wild horse and burro enthusiasts. We are thankful to the BLM for providing much of the information presented here.
