Branding Heifers
11 July 2009
Page two of three
The heifer falls over into a deep depression filled with water.
Mike and Sam work to free the rope and get the cow out of the water.
With the rope loosened, Mike is able to flip it off from around the cow's head. Once free, the cow trots off to join the rest of the herd gathered under the nearby trees.
Back at the cow pens, now filled with thick mud from the recent heavy rains, the Mule has to be pushed out of a quagmire. Sean heats the branding irons in the gas-fired furnace.
The irons soon glow red hot.

Rob passes the heated irons to Sean who does all the branding.
