Paso Fino & Branding ?

I got a paso fino about a year ago and started to wonder what his brand means. Looks like the @ symbol. Anyway while I was trying to look this up I keep seeing over and over: shots, coggins, and brand inspection mentioned.
What is a brand inspection?

Does it look like a capital A with a circle around it? If so, it may be the brand of 4 Aces Paso Finos.

Brand inspection is required for transportation out a certain jurisdiction like out of state or out of the country in some areas of North America. It's also done when selling livestock. Buyers can choose to have a brand inspection done prior to paying for the livestock to ensure the seller is the rightfull owner of the livestock being sold. Most of the time it's done at auctions. Livestock is brand inspected before being allowed into the sale to ensure the proper owner is being paid for the livestock being presented for sale. All based around registered brands applied to the livestock. If it has a brand, you need proof you own it or it needs to be your brand.

So that brand that's on your horse and his sire is probably owned by the breeder and it's their way of legally marking their livestock as being owned by them. Your bill of sale or registration papers will show transfer of ownership to you but without that or some other kind of proof of ownership, the horse legally belongs back to the brand owner.

Paso Fino Brand

I recently purchased a horse (unregistered as far as we know) that looks a bit like a Paso Fino and she has a brand on her right shoulder that looks somewhat like a @. It is large. She also has a notched right ear. Did you ever find out about your horses brand? Do you know where I can find more info about this? Thanks!
