At our brandings, I try to capture what pictures I can while also doing a bit of the branding myself. This doesn’t allow for a lot of creative time.
My friends over at the U Lazy U Ranch run things a little differently. I asked if I could come over and shoot their branding, of which they were happy to let me. I came home with many pictures that I really like. They would create a rather long blog post, so I’m going to do this in parts.
The cows were sorted into three separate herds and then each herd brought into the branding pen. While one group was branded, the others where held in the pasture.
