7 Bar

7 Bar, or rather 7-, is the brand my grandfather Lloyd Mickelsen used on his cattle ranch in Eastern Idaho.  The story goes that he wanted to use -L for Lloyd, but there were already a few -L’s in existence, so he flipped the brand over and made it into a 7-.

I have a son who I named Lloyd after my grandfather.  It’s a good name.

I don’t run a cattle ranch.  Can’t grow food to save my life.  But I use the 7-bar domain name, so the brand, and the name, live on.
