Freeze Brands are cast from Red Brass. Faces are slightly rounded. We like to recommend a minimum character height of about 2 inches for horses or 3 inches for cattle. 1/4 face width is most typical for horses. The most common difficulty faced with freeze branding and hot branding is attempting to get too much detail (too many letters or symbols) in the area. Freeze branding CAN produce some outstanding and detailed images, but we recommend keeping it simple for consistency and for the best chance of good results on your very first brand. It is often easier to manufacture a complex iron than it is to get good results on the animal from a complex image
