One of the principal duties of the cowboys is the branding of the cattle with the distinctive sign or trademark of the owner, so that as animal can be identified should it wander from the herd. The animal to be marked is roped and thrown and is held firmly by ropes in the hands of several cowboys, while another of their number applies the hot iron which burns the brand into the flesh.
