Each year during the Cattle Baron's weekend in Pendleton, there's a ranch branding.
Teams of 4 pay an entry fee and work to be the fastest team to "brand" four calves. Each calf has to headed and heeled, and then "branded" with a cold iron dipped in chalk in the correct location.
We'd been breeding heifers all day (and all week) so when Saturday night rolled around, we were looking forward to cleaning up and heading to town.
As a bonus, we got to watch friends of ours compete.

A very fun evening, and a fun tradition for Pendleton.
