We’d like to congratulate Haylie Guinn for winning our December Brand ID Contest. She correctly identified the brand below, which is from the Lazy H Ranch. This brand has been the property of 5 different large ranching outfits for more than a century.
As her prize, Haylie won a copy of the book Smoke from the Branding Fire by Hank Pallister. Read on to learn how you have one more opportunity to win this book for yourself.
January is the last month we’ll be offering a copy of Smoke from the Branding Fire, courtesy of Joyce Pallister-Bronsch, as a prize for our monthly trivia contest. If you correctly identify the brand below, you’ll be entered into a draw for a copy of the book. We’re also offering a couple of clues below. Click here to enter.
Clue One: This historic brand was first issued in May of 1885 to a famous large black cowhand
Clue Two: When it was first issued, it was recorded as Four Walking Sticks, but the owner soon realized that four made this brand too large for the left rib position on most cattle, so he requested it be changed to Three Walking Sticks.
