  Sorry I have been posting much lately just been really busy.
This last weekend we went to a friends branding at the ID ranch and had a GREAT time. It was so good to see old friends and make some new ones. I took my camera but never took a single picture. I was to busy working. So the pictures Im posting were taken by my wife. I don't know what I would do with out her!
Here is a picture of holding rodear, we are gonna brand in the open. We have a weak 4 wire fence on the right and some panels set up. There is nothing holding the cows but guys on horses. The ropers ride in to the cows and rope a calf and drag it to the fire by the truck at the bottom of the picture.
Here's the some of the ground crew waiting for a calf, watching the fire.
Me dragging one in and Will got the heels. This is on the second day. We branded at a different spot.
A scenic picture.
On the way into the branding.
It was a great time. I hope these pictures help explain why I love the life I have. Until next time take care.

What's not to love about such a beautiful country and timeless way of life. I notice that you don't use breast collars , also noticed that in the latest AQHA magazine article on a ranch in Oregon.
