An old-fashioned calf branding party

I can’t tell you how many times people have come to me with the same line that Linda Byrum approached me with about a week ago. "I don’t know if you’d like to or not, but we’ve got something that would make an interesting story in the paper."

Linda told me that she and her husband Mark, who live about a dozen miles west of Agar in rural Sully County, were going to have an ‘old fashioned calf branding’ that weekend and she was inviting me to come along. This lead held interest to me not only because it would make a good story for the paper, but also because it gave me an excuse to get to ride my horse all day.
