Get through the gate and don't be late

Over the crossing

Black and forth

Black cows with steer calves being trailed to summer pasture

Cattle moving kind of slow

Promising rain clouds that didn't materialize

Crossing the creek

Wish he was needing to wear that slicker

Up close and personal

Crossing the bridge

Cowpokes and paints

Black-hided bovines

Grabbing a quick bite

Coming up the road

Peach Blossom and Clavinova

Shutting the gate

Outside of the rain not materializing, it looks like everything went well.

One more job done!!! That's a good feeling.

We probably do things backwards around here. Rolling Eyes Wink

We brand some first, but most of our cattle go to summer pasture, and then get branded there. This has a lot to do with later calving. Heck, we are still getting a few calves yet. At least I think we are, as there seems to be some newer ones when we drift them south.

Our biggest branding here is next wed.

Branded one bunch of 3's and a few 4's today. Got the 2's and one other bunch done earlier. Every year I don't know how we get it done, with helping other neighbors and all, but it always gets done somehow.

Long days.

Really looking good there-Soapweed and crew! The cattle are really doing well Smile and for now it looks like some pretty good grass for you. I've been checking pastures and the grass is good for now-some of our pastures got .50-1 in. of rain the past couple of days,but nothing at the house to speak of.But here, no one knows what a true drought is-don't think many would live thru what up North has had for years on end Wink
