Big Ranch, Deadly Disease

I came across a great quote today:

Two Texans were trying to impress each other with the size of their ranches. One asked the other, “What’s the name of your ranch?” The rancher replied, “The Rocking R, ABC, Flying W Circle C, Bar U, Staple Four, Box D, Rolling M, Rainbow’s End, and Silver Spur Ranch.” Duly impressed, the questioner exclaimed, “Wow! That’s sure some name! How many head of cattle do you run?” With a sad shake of his head, the rancher answered, “Not many. Very few survive the branding.” And so it is with pride. Very few survive this deadly disease.
