    The wife aint happy with me..................

    went out to my uncles to help brand calves today.......told the wife i would prolly only wrestle 2 out of the 130 or so calves...........well it was just as much fun as i remembered and wound up wrestling a dozen or so...........didnt get kicked in the knees so im alright but the wife wasnt to happy about it..........especially when my brother and i waded in after one of the last ones not waiting for the ropers and grabbed her by hand.....she was a big one too, prolly 140 pounds......the wife was pissed

    ive got photos if ya'll want to see them but realize that branding is a messy process and if i do post the photos i dont want to hear any crying about animal cruelty............will only post the majority of them if requested to do so..........here are the "harmless ones"

    my great uncles new horse, Cowboy. great horse, insisted in getting his ears scratched by everyone......here he is looking for a beer during a break


    some youngins doing it by hand and not waiting for the ropers



    the reward for a job well done.......my aunt is an excellent cook


    and a lil friend my brother found on the way out

    awesome pictures. Its not animal cruelty any ways! Not until ranchers can afford to buy how ever many micro chips and the equpiment for them. But even then Brandings the cheepest and esiest way. and Racnchers dont have money to waste on the electronics.

    its fun in the way tackling big guys in football is fun..............its hard work but ive been doing it since i was big enough to........as bad as my knee are this is the only one i go to anymore and thats cause my aunts cooking brings me running........there were a dozen other wrestlers and at 25, i was the oldest doing alot of wrestling. my brother, who is 17 and a bunch of other guys his age did most of the work but once i got started i couldnt help myself. given my knees i couldnt hold the head but that wasnt much of an issue since we had plenty of help......if someone else grabbed the rear legs before i could while helping to drag one in i would just hand over the calf to someone else to pin down the head
