This spring I decided to freeze brand my cows.  After having several cows loose their tags over the years I wanted to have a permanent number on them.  Freezing branding will cause the hair to grow back white.  Cow #43 below is a cow born on Rebecca's birthday.  So it is 4 1/2 going to 5 years old this Aug. 31.   I know, I know, this is a boring post to most but I am pumped that they turned out well.  I give credit to my friend Scott and my neighbor Marv for helping me.  

 These cows below are just a second and third example of how they look.  I anticipate the only challenge to this could be at sorting time when the cows are crowded together and their hindquarters are hidden from view.  I choose to leave the number tags in to help with this but they can be ripped or pulled out anytime.
