June Branding at Staple Cross Ranch

Staple Cross Branding June 18th, 2016

38, 000 acres of New Mexico heaven.

Inda, taking matters into his own hands.

Rick on "Roper" drags one in for Jodi, Paul and Inda

Sometimes the best cowboy is a cowgirl!

 Rick double hocks a big one, nice!

Moo. Fence line weaning.

Best shot of the day!
Rick, Eric, and Joe; Picture perfect - rope one way and tail the other is 
how you safely get a cow down.

Rick, Trevor and Joe getting another one to the fire.

Of course laying a calf down is a bit harder when
they are that big! Ranch boss, Steve Price on the rope, while
 Trevor and Joe get down to business.

Lots going at any given moment.

Flankin', brandin', and taggin'. Our crew does it all!

I wonder what that cow is thinking???

Say cheeeese boys! Our neighbor Clint Mortenson drags one in.

Watch out boys, there's a new cowgirl in town!
