More Branding

We headed to another branding this morning, feels like all I been doing.  We went on the 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 8th, our on the 9th, 11th, 14th and today so far.  We still have tomorrow, the 18th, 19th, 22nd, 26th, and July 2nd.  Whew.  I went Friday afternoon and helped them move cows into a smaller field for today.  Then this morning they probly didn't need help rounding up but I was up since 5:30 so at 7 I decided I would go cause obviously wasn't gonna sleep.  So I took Jess and away we went.  It was pretty easy this first bunch then we got them in, cows sorted out and then had to wait for the rest of the crew.  We shoulda took longer getting them in I guess.  We did the first bunch and they went out to ride the second bunch and I was tired but I had my pony so I was gonna go out but then a neighbor girl who didn't have a horse wanted to go so I let her take Jessie.  She rides English most of the time so it was a little different but she did good.

I got to take pics of them coming in since I wasn't out there.  We got them done and visited forever then I took Jess home since it was on the way to the house then went for supper and more visiting.  Finally I had to go home was so tired.  Had a nap and now feel like doing something again, but probly wont as tomorrow will be another long day.

That's really cool seeing Fly all grown up! And of course I checked out the watercolour photo- you are right, it does look like a watercolour!

A nap is always refreshing as long as you don't take too long of a one. I find I actually feel worse if I take too long of a nap. By the sound of it you deserved that nap!
