It's very simple: I just took a nail, heated it up with a lighter, and applied it Chisum Trail-style; they get black from the soot and scab over, then dry up. One protest moo, then I loosened the lasso on my ankles and trotted off indignantly into the range....

Don't try to cut the damn things off, though: I didn't, but I'm told they bleed like hell, forcing a trip to the ER.
Damn. Now that's taking problems into your own hands.
