Getting ready for Branding!

Getting ready for Branding!

Rush getting mentally prepared for branding tomorrow…

This week is an exciting one  on the ranch. In between showers of rain and snow (finally!) we have been busy sorting pairs of cow and calves, cleaning up and cooking for the first big branding of the year here on the island. After a long winter and an even longer calving season, branding gives ranch folks a chance to see relatives and catch-up with friends you haven’t seen in several months, all while getting some work done. Truth is, we couldn’t do brandings without our friends and neighbors. Most of them have their own laundry lists of chores this time of year so we are especially grateful when they show up.
