Branding Calves

What a morning! J made a little corral that led into a loading chute, which then led into a squeeze chute. Both H and I helped J get the calves to where they should be in order for them to be branded and de-horned. It was quite interesting trying to figure things out without the help of grandpa. This was the first time doing it without grandpa...without anyone for that matter. J spent a moment on the phone with Jake getting reassurance to what he was doing. It was actually quite fun, and I was proud to be a part of it. Usually I am on the side lines, but this year I was need more as a helper than a spectator.
