Longhorn Cattle Drive

When: Fri., July 1 2011

Growing up on a farm, branding and neutering cattle was a big event for us. One year, my father thought he was particularly funny and starting throwing the, er, oysters at me after removing them. That was my last branding, and I will not be attending Ride for the Brand Championship Ranch Rodeo and Chuck Wagon Cook-Off, as I wouldn't want to disrupt the festivities with my Vietnam-style flashbacks. The Longhorn Cattle Drive happens at high noon today, running north to south on Tejon Street (championshipranchrodeo.com); tomorrow, the cook-off will start at 4:30 p.m. and the rodeo at 6:30 at the Norris-Penrose Event Center (1045 Lower Gold Camp Road). Tickets range from $5 to $20. — Cherise Fantus
