Branding :)

Better than Christmas, I think.

I've only been to ONE branding this year. You'd think as many guys as I've helped when they really needed it I'd have to turn down all the invites. Maybe I'm just a hopeless gunsel.

I miss branding I have only been to a couple since I have been back state side but its a lot of fun. One of the ranches the rookies get oysters tossed at them but the rancher died couple years back so they downsized until they can get everything going again. It doesnt help that most of the ranches I branded at flooded last year.

Ugh, lucky! I miss branding but I don't get to anymore since my brother stopped managing a ranch.

Wonderful pictures, looks like you had a ton of fun.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Goodness, that brings back memories when my dad and I use to help one of our local farmers bring his cattle down from the Sierra's to the pasture, would take us a whole day to do it, but we took our time, some of the cowboys would sing, I would ride drag as I didn't mind waiting for the stragglers or go chase after a young cow who thought she needed to go back.

Sure miss that...beautiful horse OP!
