My friend Raymond got here Saturday evening and we’ve been going to brandings every day since. He is an artist so was shooting photos for future art work… he left from the branding today before we were finished as he needed to get home and had about 550 miles to drive…still getting some calves…Cindy and I checked this  afternoon and there was a new one who was across the fence so we opened the gate and got his mama to go into the pasture with him…I cleaned on corrals this evening and caught a fresh horse for the branding tomorrow… we have a shot at rain starting Thursday morning going all; the way into next week so if you can spare some prayers, we’d appreciate it…
