From the Rodear

We have two brandings on our place, as a general rule. Our big Father’s Day party, and another, smaller branding around the Fourth of July.  This year, I spent the entire July 4th branding, horseback, either roping or holding herd, so I don’t have photos of that little party. I do, however, have photos of us rodearing our yearlings, and having a little fun with breakaway ropes, just because we can…In the link above, I explain what it means to Rodear your cattle. Don’t worry, it’ll open in a new window so you can keep looking at the photos, here.  Handling your cattle this way really low-stress. Plus, it makes having roping practice that much more productive.  Quite a few of the photos I took this day, I took horseback.  Big loops and slick horns are the only way to go on this outfit.  I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into our life.  And in case you’re wondering if you can have gorgeous photos of your branding get-togethers, I’m certainly for hire.
