You will need to find and identify a cattle brand used either in the past or present for this week's post. You MUST have the following items in your post:
1) Describe what the brand looks like and post a URL where I can see a picture of the brand. (Correction of original instructions)
2) The full name of the brand and the year of the brand's beginning if possible.
3) A small summary of the brand including
a) the people involved
b) the location of the ranch (state required)
Please see the following example below:
1) 2) Smith-Gilman 1871 3) In 1869, a young Oregon bachelor, James M. Gilman, arrived and then married Martha (Mattie) Smith on January 11th, 1871. Mattie Smith had been 3 years old when her family, the Smith's, came to Whitewater Pass in California. Gilman bought an old ranch and used the new Smith-Gilman brand on the property.
