I call this picture Clueless
Look at the little calf, head up, smiling for the camera.
No clue that life as he knows it is about to change forever...due to banding.
The tool in My Cowboy's hand is sort of a pair of pliers. To which he attached a rubber band.
He uses the pliers to stretch the tiny rubber band, slides it over the little boy's...........pride and joy
And snaps it off the pliers. Thus adding a band to cut off circulation in a completely painless, bloodless, clearly trauma-less
(I'm going to say it, turn away now if you have to, last chance)
Here is is the picture I think of as SNAP
Here is mama saying, "Get up my little steer, you're fine...well, fine-ish."
Note the pliers, innocent little tools of the trade.
