Well, the works here have come and gone and I didn’t get hardly any pictures at all. The weather was horrible and there was always something going on that seem to be at the same time as the brandings. I decided to pick out a few of my favorites and share those with ya. I edited all of these, well, because they needed it. Luckily I didn’t have to do any acne treatment editing…LOL. I think they turned out decent but I’d love to hear what you guys think.
First up is some of the cowboy crew trying to settle the cattle down after rounding them up and herding them in. I chose black and white because the color was not appealing at all. In fact, there’s not much color any where out here at all! I was just driving up to the pens so I snapped this one from inside my truck.
Next up: After the calves have been sorted from their mommas, it’s time to drag them out one by one and brand them. This fella a-horseback happens to be a good friend of ours. Super nice guy who drinks Coca-Cola:) He probably won’t like this picture too much though because it shows him draggin’ one foot and not 2. Cowboys hate when they only catch one foot…that just ain’t punchy at all!
Time to brand…….After those 2 cowboys above have flipped the calf of its’ side, several cowboys come in at once and ear tag it, give it shots, cut the cajones (if they have them), and brand them.
And finally, I can’t show you cowboy pictures without getting at least one person’s backside! After all, Wranglers are what REAL cowboys wear;) This fella happens to be my girlfriend’s man! YES, she knows I took a picture of her man’s backside, in fact, I printed it off for her:)
