Herding heifers and branding bull calves
27 December 2008
page one of three
A busy---and very overcast meaning awful lighting---morning moving cattle and branding bull calves begins early with the horses being saddled. Here Roscoe looks a bit wary of the work ahead, especially when he sees the bridle.
Ever the opportunist, Goldie knocks over a bucket in the truck looking for feed as Sean Sexton tightens the saddle. Mike Sexton gives Roscoe a quick brushing down.

Ben Harrison and Sean chain the feed troughs together for towing to the new pasture the heifers are being moved to. Note in the picture at left that Sam the little ranch dog is running alongside the tractor.
