This week, was extremely exciting. I went to my first ever branding, and I have to say, it was hard work, yet maybe one of the most entertaining things I have ever done. Learning how to trip the calf was very interesting and especially since these calves were on the larger size, timing was absolutely everything. I also learned another way to brand besides the traditional way. Putting the calves on a table certainly went fast with only 6 people. We also trailed bulls, and even though they are easier than pairs, I have to say they are way more intimidating. They seem to just want to fight for no reason and if you don’t have your wits about you then they could kill you or your horse if you are in the wrong spot. Earlier this week we received about 2.8 inches of rain in less than 24 hours, due to the actual rain and the conditions of the road, we were forced to stay in and do maintenance on equipment. I learned how to change out the blades on a swather. This week was very eye opening and new, and will truly be one that I will never forget.
