Branding in South Dakota

My old buddy and king of the chap makers, Jack Gully http://kbarjleather.com Invited me up to South Dakota last week to attend a branding down on the Pine Ridge Indian reservation. I'm sure glad I went. Avery May and crew really had it going on. I have never worked in big crews like this before and it was quite a treat. We ran 7 ropers, and probably around 100 flankers all afternoon, all at once.
I'll have more pictures as I get them.

I can't thank the May family enough for putting me up(and putting up with Jack), it was the trip of a lifetime.

2 things about South Dakota: I never knew you could ride a horse in a straight line that far, and there are no thorns on the bushes. Quite different than I'm used to in Texas.
