Cattle STAMPede ... End of the Trail

Hey Everyone!
Wow, I'm wagging like crazy because so far I have 26 entries in my Cattle STAMPede for the big Blogville Rodeo!   WHOOHOOOO    All of you have been so clever, fun, creative and imaginative with your brands.   I love them all.  

NOW TODAY AT MIDNIGHT IS THE END OF THE TRAIL!    Yup, pardners it's the deadline.

Don't forget:    We won't be hot-iron branding our cattle *yeouch* because that would just be mean.  Nope, we're ink stampering them instead.  BOL    If you want to brand a bovine, send your info to me using   lfurman1987ATyahooDOTcom   and let me know what you'd like.   You can send your own completed brand, or send me a description of your request and I'll work it up for you.    Either way is great, just get 'er done before midnight.  BOL 

If you already got your brand to me, feel free to post these yourselves on July 9th if you'd like.
I will be posting ALL of our brands and stampered up cattle that day.


Here is what my brand looks like!

Terms used are:
  • "Crazy": An upside down symbol. An upside down R would be read as "Crazy R".
  • "Reverse": A reversed symbol. would be read as "Reverse K". Reverse is sometimes called "Back" (i.e. a backwards C would be read as "Back C").
  • "Lazy": Symbols turned 90 degrees. Also, a symbol turned 90 degrees, lying on its face (or right hand side) can be read as "Lazy Down" or "Lazy Right" .
  • "Flying": a symbol that starts and ends with a short serif or short horizontal line attached before the left side of the top of the symbol and attached to the right side of the symbol, extending to the right of the symbol.
  • "Walking": a symbol with a short horizontal line attached to the bottom of the symbol, extending to the right of the symbol.
  • “Running”: a letter with a curving flare attached to the right side of the top of the letter, extending to the right, with the symbol sometimes also leaning to the right like an italic
  • "Over": a symbol over above another symbol, but not touching the other symbol. An H above a P would be read as "H Over P".
  • "Bar": a short horizontal line. For example, a short horizontal line over an M or before an M would be read as "Bar M".
  • "Box": a symbol within a square or rectangle or a square or rectangle by itself. A box with a P inside of it would be read as "Box P".
  • "Diamond": a symbol within a four sided box, the box tilted 45 degrees or a four sided box tilted 45 degrees by itself.
  • "Circle": a symbol within a circle, or a circle by itself. A circle with a C inside of it would be read as "Circle C".
  • "Hanging": a symbol beneath another symbol and touching the other symbol. Read as " H Hanging P", or just "H P".
  • "Swinging": a symbol beneath a quarter circle, the open side of the quarter circle facing the symbol, with the symbol touching the quarter circle. For example, a H with a quarter circle over it, with the top of the H touching the quarter circle would be read as "Swinging H".
  • "Rocking": a symbol above a quarter circle, the open side of the quarter circle facing the symbol, with the bottom of the symbol touching the quarter circle. For example, a H with a quarter circle under it, is read as "Rocking H".
