    Abstract

    Detection and prevention of certain criminal activities within the horse industry would be facilitated if a permanent, unalterable, visible means of identification is used on the animal at a very young age. Techniques formerly accepted by the industry do not meet the test of adequate identification today. Freeze marking with unalterable symbols meets the modern needs of the horse industry and is acceptable in the National Crime Information Center computer network. “Trichoglyphs” and blood type are unalterable natural characteristics that augment the program.
