Tell me about it! I was at brandings Friday and Saturday this weekend and I'm wiped. And dirty. And sore. As fun as it may be, its also HARD work on the humans and horses alike.
My poor Squiggy was falling asleep at beer breaks yesterday afternoon! I'm looking out the window and she's crashed hard, stretched right out and probably sleeping like a rock.
If you ever get the chance to participate at a branding, don't think twice about it! Lol
