The following is an excerpt from the book in question, Texas Cattle Brands: A Catalog of the Texas Centennial Exposition Exhibit, 1936. I dare you to tell me why I find it so funny:
"'Apple' 'Started about 1880 by R.G. Head and M. Halff as a road brand. The brand was made up in Mason County at the Widow Martin’s place on Hedwick’s Hill on the Llano River. A herd of about 3,000 head of mixed cattle were driven to Ogallah, Nebraska, in 1880. Giles Fenner was trail boss. R.G. Head, known as Dick Head, was one of the most prominent men during trail driving days. He began working with Col. J.J. Meyers of Caldwell County about 1866 and was a prominent man in the cattle business and in trail driving through the 80’s.' (J.W. Wilson, Robstown, Texas.)"
