During the spring and summer our weekends are often very busy, and usually filled with cattle. Last weekend we branded the calves, and they will be moved to summer grass next week. We've had a fair amount of rain lately and last weekend was forecast to be wet and cool too. Saturday was cool, but thankfully it was dry, as branding wet calves doesn't work well.
The corrals were a little sloppy, but the calves sorted well.

We had Claire in her farm outfit for the occasion, but she didn't let all the commotion interrupt her nap.
