Can't Keep A Good Man Down

We got home on a Monday night from Salt Lake City.  On Friday we branded.  And there was no keeping The Prairie Daddy from getting out and working.  I was nervous but knew I couldn't tell him what to do.  The most important thing was to keep him clean and his wounds from getting bumped.  He was pretty good with staying back and I was amazed that he lasted all day after being down for weeks. 
We had our first batch of calves from the new Hereford bulls that we got.  They are SO cute!  Just look at that speckled nose!

Look at how serious he looks...
The Prairie Kid took my picture : )
My mom arrived that afternoon.  She has never been to a branding.  And she had never seen a calf castrated.  I love the look on her face!
