Spring is a busy time of year in cow country. There is always way more to do than time to do it in. The weather has been kind this year, and everyone I know is going full out to get things done.
I ran into an old friend at the Round Up rodeo. She said they were very busy getting ready to move their cattle to their ranches in Oregon for the summer. I really miss that part of my life, but it is comforting to know that it still happens, and the families that do it persevere.
What follows is a small taste in photos of a local family's spring marking and branding. I'm happy that they are graciously allowing me to use their photos.
