Branding 2013

I’ve given you photos throughout the years… but nothing conveys the action of a branding like a movie.  I held my camera next to the branding iron, so the perspective is a bit off… but I hope you find this interesting.

Q&A time again… post your polite questions in the comment section… and I’ll answer them Sunday!

Branding 2013 — 4 Comments

  1. I’m guessing that a brand is either a 2nd or 3rd degree burn. Do you ever have to worry about them getting infected?

  2. Oh Carol, I could smell the firewood and the burning flesh. Its been years since I was at a branding. Thanks for sharing and thanks for the memory. Take Care, Barb

  3. Was that you being the bar lady, with a camera in the other hand? Do you keep the bars in one fire, and the A’s in the other one? Or are they mixed up? We have only branded once since I got here (over 30 years ago), and that was to put our brand on some cows we bought that were already branded.
