Branding in Pilot Rock.

 I've been editing and sorting thru pictures from Ryan & Amy's branding in Pilot Rock for a little over a week now....and I'm still only halfway done.
 
*Grin*
 
They had a ton of great help, and so I got the luxury of sitting back and snapping away.
 
1,000+ pictures later, and I figured I should just post what I have now and then maybe I'll do a second post later.
 
 


 




We love going to brandings where they drag to the fire.
While it's technically "work", it's a chance for the guys - who've been calving and busting their tails with little sleep for the past two months - to get to see their friends and get work done.
That's multi-tasking at it's finest for a rancher. :)
 






 


 




Calves were roped, kids played and shots were given.
And at one point - after the ground crew had given the ropers a bit of grief about not having any calves to brand - the ground crew found themselves with 5 calves at the end of ropes, and only 2 Nordforks.
 

 




 
It was pretty comical to watch from the top of the pen. 
 
I bet the ground crew didn't give them any grief after that.  ;)
 
 
 
 
It was a great day in the branding pen with great people.
 
Thanks Ryan & Amy for having us again!
