The Kinstetter branding is one of my favorites. Always good company and a smooth operation. This year was no exception.
Wanting to share the wealth, I picked up my buddy Nick Curley in Moorcroft on my way out to the ranch. Don showed him the ropes.
Let the fun begin. The crew alternates in and out and from one job to another so no one gets too tired. Here Don and Chris lay the Milliron C on the first volunteer.
Greg makes sure all the heifers get ear tagged.
Nick drew the tough card. He handled it well though. I, on the other hand, mostly held up a fence post.
The feast afterwards isn't the only reason we come out, but it is one.
No better way to spend a Saturday morning in May than at a branding. The country side looks like Ireland around here. Thanks be to God for blessing us with rain. Even though it is a Memorial Day weekend, we will gladly have our picnics rained out this year.
