Went to a friend's branding today -we did around 350 calves and were done just in time to wolf down some great steak at suppertime.Was fun to get roping again except my rotten kid outroped me today. In my defence I was roping with a couple team ropers so had that handicap to deal with lol. Cows were fat- calves were sassy and the grass was green doesn't get much better. Saw one strange thing-a calf died from vaccine shock-the vet who was castrating said he sees one or two a year-they gave him ephinnephrine but it didn't save him. Our country hasn't looked this good in a long time.
