Description: In this photograph, several men, dressed as cowboys (loose shirts, chaps, and cowboy hats) are standing in a wooden pen with cows. To the left, there is some sort of building outside the pen and in front of it, there is a man leaning over. There is a second man standing in the middle of the photograph watching something and two cows are in the pen behind him. To the right, there are two men watching a third man in the foreground who is grabbing onto something (possibly another cow). In the background, more cows are visible on the other side of the pen. On the back of the photograph there is a handwritten note: "Branding scene, W. W. Bogel Ranch. Nicolas Machuck looks over the operation."
