Saturday was our annual branding for the calves and it was the quickest branding I can remember. Gotta give credit and thanks to the two excellent ropers Les and Del!
A few pictures I’ll post here but the majority you’ll find at my flickr site.
These are my two nephews Dezmond and Mikey. Mikey’s throwing the calf.

Our neighbour Rick tries out Hubby’s gloves.
Lee, a long time friend, jumps right in… unfortunately he also fell right over!
Lee and the calf hit the ground at the same time.

Hubby brands a calf alongside his brother Doug (right) and friend Jeff (left).
It was a great day with wonderful weather, lots of helping hands, and excellent food.
We finished up quite early and all headed over to Grandma’s for lunch. I cooked a ton of sausage rolls and about 3 dozen cabbage rolls (one day I should blog my recipe). Two friends fighting over who was going to take home the few cabbage rolls left made me feel good LOL!
