  1. What a lovely, busy day on the farm!! Your cows always look so healthy, it is obvious that Cowboy takes really good care of the herd. I've never seen freeze branding before...looks so much easier on the heifers than the traditional hot branding. When I helped with branding/inculcating/castrating on a farm one fall, we also had to give them some oral medication using a caulking gun! That was a fun day, especially when they handed me the Rocky Mountain Oysters to take to the house to be cooked for breakfast. I think I just had toast that morning!!! So nice to have family to help with the busy days like this one was.
