This is the real high point of branding, especially for a small kid. A plate full of beef, beans, and bread, with butterhorns to come.
Grandad Cool selects a branding iron. This is where a certain organization might flag my blog as evil.
I thought this a particularly nice shot of the brand on the back of a calf, with horses and chaps-clad cowboys visible as well. It was a gray and cool day for a branding, but the light was quite nice for photos. It did prove to me that I need a new camera.
