The man holding the brand is fairly young, wearilng loose, lightly-colored clothing, a hat and and tall boots. He is facing a slightly older man who is sitting on the calf. The second man has a moustache and is wearing a light shirt, dark pants, and what appears to be a leather apron as well as a hat. The calf is white with darker spots. Behind them, there is a third man, also dressed in light clothing, who is only partially visible, walking near a tall wooden fence that surrounds them. The left side of the photograph is partially obscured by a white spot. On the back of the photograph, there is a handwritten note that says, "Gus Bogel brands one for his dad, W.W. Bogel, at the Perdiz pens."
