Preparing Horses for Natural Disasters

2. Identification

One thing that a lot of horse owners forget about is identification. While tattooing or branding are both options, the most popular form of identifying horses these days is the microchip. It is also extremely efficient and effective, and can help speed reunion with a horse should you become separated. It’s also a good idea to keep a current photograph of every horse under your care. Be sure to update those photos every year, because horses do change, especially when they are younger.
