[ The horse of your dreams. You've paid the $5,000. You have the "bill of sale." You have the registration papers signed by the seller so you can transfer title with the registry. You had a "vet check," and were assured the horse is sound. You're ready to load your new horse in the trailer and go home. WAIT! You don't own that horse, and it's illegal to transport it. The missing link in this sale, and one requiredby law, is the '*orand inspection." 'The horse doesn't even have a brand," you say. "Be- sides I have the seller's signa- ture on both the"bill of sale" and the registration papers and a copy of the cashier's check for pay- :?ffnt. How can anyone say I m't own this hot'seT' The State of Nevada says you don't own that horse. Under NevadaRevised Statutes (NRS) 565.100, you are required tohave a brand inspection to change ownership of horses in the State of Nevada. The statute also in- cludes mules, burros, cattle and bison. In addition, a brand in- spection is required forthe listed animals for trausportation out of the state of Nevada and for con- signment to sale or slaughter. Brand inspections are non-transferable. The B rand Inspection Certificate inehides the name and address of the seller and buyer. The docmnent will be signed by both parties and the brand inspector. The inspeaor will note the animal's color, sex, age, brands (if any), markings and scars on the document. The white (original) certificate is sent to the Reno office to be recorded. The buyer receives the blue copy, the seller the pink copy and the brand inspector retains the yellow copy. The fee (outlined below) is paid by the seller. Within the State of Nevada, movement across district boundary lines (there are ten districts) requires: 1. A livestock movement permit for horses and cattle; and, 2. An annual, or lifetime, transpor- tation permit for horses and all other equine. Proof of livestock ownership should be carried in the vehicle at all times for both horses  cattle. Anytime you transport livestock, you may be stopped by brand inspectors or other law enforcement officers. You will need to show your brand inspection papers to prove legal0wnershi p of the animals. When the transporter is not the owner, he/she will need proof he/she is legally hauling the livestock for the owner. Both the livestock and vehicle may he impounded if the officer determines there is a question of ownership. A citation can be issued in lieu of impoundment. Brand inspectors also issue transportation permits for horses. If you will be showing your horse, riding in gymkhaua competitions, rodeo, endurance .riding or any other activity that requires traveling with the animal you will probably want an annual, or better yet, a permanent on permit. You must be able to prove ownership to obtain a transportation permit. You will also need to provide the i with photos of both sides of the horse and a head-on shot to obtain a permanent permit. It is good for the life of the animal or until ownership changes. The fee for an annual permit is $10. A permanent permit is $20. The brand inspection fee is $7 for one horse, plus $1 per head thereafter per owner at point designated by the impeetor. The minimum fee for cattle is $7 for one to 10 head with each additional head costing 70 cents. i i it, iiii Call 24 hours 727-1888 Cremation 00ireet Burial Includes: Removal from Place of death, preen of Dh Certifmt and Permit. on. minirrm Urn, Fully Lkerned P.O.

".x .... . i For both the brand inspection and the translx)rtafion permiL there is a charge of 31 cents per mile and $12 per hour for inspector. Mileage is not charged if the animal is brought to the inspector at a designated point. The fees do not go into the Nevada general fund. Instead, they are designated to finance the brand division. The purpose of the Nevada inspection program is to protect livestock owners, the livestock industry and to ensure the safe movement of livestock in the state. Brand inspections are required in all Western states except California where horse inspections are optional. California also has the highest number of horse thefts per capita. Nevada has reciprocal agreements with the states that require brand inspections. Brand inspectors request 24 hour notice for an appointment. Pahrump based brand inspectors are Janet Beard at 727-6754 and John Raetz at 727-5378. Richard I2nard, at 702-294-1138, is the manager for District 10 which includes Pahrump and 1.m Vegas. Health certificates, obtained from your veterinarian, are also required to transport horses. For information about animal health regulations contact the Bureau of Animal Industry at 702-688-1180.
