Branding at the butte.

We branded at the butte Saturday.
 
Normally the ranch runs calves across a table, but has a group of cull cows that is being run up at the butte and there aren't any facilities to do that.  So Clint asked a few friends to come help rope, and they showed up big time.
 
It was a gorgeous day, with just the right amount of breeze and in a few hours, the crew had everything branded and was back at our house for lunch.
 
I went up for awhile with my mom and Chandler, and got to capture a few pictures.  This was my first week back at work, so I haven't had a ton of time to put words to pictures....but we also don't get to rope and drag much here at the ranch, and I wanted to make sure these pictures got on the blog.
 
So with that....I'm going to picture dump.  :)
 
Just know it was a gorgeous day, filled with the best of kind of people, doing an important job.
 
And we were grateful.
 







































 











 



 
We are so thankful to good friends and fellow Double M co-workers who helped get the job done safely, both for the crew and for the cattle.
