The most eventful part of the day (read “Branding 911” below) over shadowed our new, up and coming branding crew. Eric Encinias and our neighbor Marcelo were excellent teachers for the next generation (which just happens to be all girls!)
The girls did an amazing job and were fearless. So much so that when both flanking crews were busy, and a third calf came, Macklee went to grab the rope alone! This is a picture of her mad after I would let her take that calf by herself. (Mean mom!)
The next branding we went to they were able to practice some more.
If these girls continue to be such a great flanking crew, think of all the money we will save on beer!
