I’ve been stewing and brewing on a branding post, since branding season kicked off back in April. However, I’ve been unable to capture the pictures I feel are necessary to capture the essence of a Southern Idaho head-and-heel branding. All this, despite the fact the kids and I ditched school a few weeks ago to go branding. Unfortunately, the school year has caught up with my children and they were dragging hind end Friday morning. As a result, we arrived at the branding pen as the last calf was receiving his iron. I managed a few shots, before the excitement ended and the much-needed rain began. I hope you enjoy the photos, we certainly enjoyed the rain. While you are waiting with baited breath for a more substantial post, click on over to On Pasture and Faces of Agriculture for more of me. I am honored to be included on these pages, they are well worth your time. Thank you all.
