Description: In this photograph, several men, dressed as cowboys (loose white shirts, chaps, boots, and cowboy hats) are standing in a wooden pen with cows. The man to the left is holding what appears to be a can of some sort. To the right, there is a cow lying on the ground surrounded by four men: one on the left is sitting next to the cow, one is standing next to him and one is standing in front of the cow, the fourth is kneeling near the cow's head. In the right of the photo, there appears to be at least one other cow in the pen and a sixth person. In the background, on the other side of the wooden fence, there are several groups of cows. A handwritten note on the back of the photograph that reads, "Branding scene, at Perdiz pens, W. W. Bogel Ranch."
