it’s a cowboy life

I was able to get in on some branding action last week. Are you confused? Wondering what the heck I’m talking about? Well, let me explain:

This winter, Ryan has been feeding the cattle and keeping tabs on the births as you’ve read about several times. Well, when spring rolls around it’s time to process the calves and then turn all of the cows loose to graze in the mountains until next fall. The “processing” involves giving shots and marking the calves so they can be identified. That’s what is taking place here:

Summer 2011

It’s quite the process and way fun to watch!

And did I mention how hot my hubby looks riding a horse and roping calves in his cowboy gear?

Cowboys are just plain sexy. Can I say that? Well, I just did.

That is so stinkin' cool! I love the pictures. Ryan does look pretty hot.. wait.. can I say that? Don't take that the wrong way... but he totally looks like a real cowboy (which he is, I know- but so cool to see it in action!)
