You can learn alot from living in the country that is for sure and Neal has been educated! He has seen puppies being born and baby mice bundled up in grass cuttings in a hole on Grandma's from lawn, but going to a branding party beats them all. They do more than branding when they have those calves in the shoot.....hormone shots, ear tags, de-horning and castration. You watch and kind of cringe for those cute little calves. Neal had a great time corraling the calves(seperating them from their mammas) and rounding them up on a quad, and of course, riding a horse. And no, we did not eat any "prairie oysters", but the dogs hanging around were were very full at the end of branding.
