got my calves branded the 24 th we had one more calf died the night before we branded. we lost 4 now and one cow was dry. James came home the night before we branded. He said he feels better than he has for 3-4 years.

K.C., do you have a crew for branding or do your neighbors help you? I can't imagine that a person wold do all of that by himself.

to get help for your branding you go to other peoples brandings and help them. then when you brand your calves you let them know when and they come to you branding. they bring horses, children and you have a good time everyone does a job just to get the job done. we rope and drag the smaller calves are held down by 2 wrestlers the big ones are held by 2 ropers head and heeled. then the women cook a big meal and everyone eats drink a beer or 2 visit and go home. some times there is a bronc that needs to be rode just a big day of fun had by all.
