Branding Cows

Casey took the boys to brand cows for the first time. The boys' job was to let a few calfs through the gate then pull the rope so one calf gets loaded onto the branding table.

On the 4th calf, Dillon's thumb got smashed in the gate, when the calf suddenly backed up. The end result? A broken thumb

After icing it for about 30 minutes, Dillon decided to go back and work. There wasn't anything we could do until the swelling went down, plus it was a weekend. On monday he got a full cast which he was to wear for 4 weeks. He thought it was cool, until he found out he had to forfit his spot on the All Star Team. Mom was bumbed!
