Barbeque and Branding Irons

June 24th marked another big day for the Cross Shield Ranch in Stonewall County, Texas.
A group of 30 nice folks from Kentucky came to visit and enjoy some Texas hospitality. The Cross Shield crew made them comfortable with cowboy coffee cooked over the fire. The group enjoyed seeing Don Long train a young filly, the cowboys branded and vaccinated several young cows and gave a cattle dog demonstration. A fun time was had for all, and Johnny Greer, Bea Allen and Eileen all cooked up a great feast for everyone to enjoy.
The weather was great, with a light rain in the morning and clouds to hold back the heat until after lunch.
