I've been trying to get a good picture (as good as my cheapy camera gets) of John's brand. Sorry this is a terrible picture and it's hard to make out the brand but it is J (without the cross at the top and O. He likes this brand because there are no connections and the brand comes out clearly most times and heals better on the cow. I caught her ready to get a drink but by the looks of her she should have been taking a bath. She just had a baby and we have two other new babies. There is a steak house in Devine, Texas that displays brands of area farmers and ranchers. We were surprised to find John's among at least 100 or more others. They display them each on a small varnished board with the man's name or the ranch name, his brand, and where he is from. We have company again. We aren't good host so I don't know why they all come to see us. Maybe because we are good listeners. John's sister (not the one who stays a month at a time) from Alaska. She isn't spending all her time here as she came to hog and deer hunt on another sister's ranch. She called this morning to tell us she got about an 80 pound hog. We'll be good listeners later today when she comes here to tell us all about her hunt and the one that got away. Oh and look for the brand high on her hip near her tail.
