This fleeting scene was not shot in a meadow, but inside a barn at the Lonesome Ranch. Indeed, the outside of the barn is plainly visible in the film from Alma’s kitchen (see Chapter 9, 00 46 54).
Although this small scene was eventually deleted, it was made with great care. Not just any calf would do. Even Brokeback’s animal cast had to meet high standards of attractiveness and authenticity. Local Angus calves were passed over for this stunning Hereford, obtained from a ranch in nearby Longview.
