Not our typical Sunday! Caleb, his cow horse Rooster, and cow dogs Squeak and Rio, enjoy a short breather this evening after a long day of working. This morning our ox was in the ditch! Actually they (calves weaned yesterday) had crossed the ditch after exploiting a small hole, and mixed in with another bunch of cows. After gathering, sorting, changing horses, trailering to Washoe Valley to check on the mother cows (they stayed in 😃), fixing fence, and turning the calves back out, we made it home in time to for the evening chores, dinner and calling it a day! #ranchlife #farmlife #ranchlifeisgoodlife #ranchkidsrock #greatbasin #cowboy #buckaroo #cowboylife #blmmustang #bordercollie #cowdog #nevadagrown #holleyfamilyfarms

Our first Saturday without a @carsonfarmersmarket since June 2nd!. Slept in and still beat the sun. Had a fun and very fruitful day making jam, hauling hay, and weaning calves. #ranchlife #farmlife #ranchlifeisgoodlife #greatbasin #nevadasky #sunset #nevadagrown #nevada #holleyfamilyfarms #buckaroo #cowboylife #equestrianlife

Tomorrow is the last @carsonfarmersmarket for 2018, so today we picked everything left in the garden! We've enjoyed being a part of the market for 8 years now, providing #usdaorganic veggies, 100% grass-fed beef and lamb, and gmo and soy-free pork! Stop by our booth for a visit! #certifiedorganic #farmersmarket #lovemymarket #buylocal #organic #organicveggies #nevadagrown

Sorted out the bulls and moved mamas and babies to their fall pasture in Washoe Valley. Between trips we had a great lunch at the local drive-in! #ourinstagrammerinstagramming! #nevadagrown #nevadabluesky #grassfedbeef @carsonfarmersmarket and @greatbasinfoodcoop! #grassfed #ranchlife #ranchkids #farmlife #ranchlifeisgoodlife #greatbasin #buckaroo #ranchhorse #thatgirlisacowboy #familyranch #fordtrucks #fordtruck #betweentheears

26 on the 26th! On this day in 1992, Daniel Lee Holley was born in Elko, NV. The oldest of three, he's a shepherd and cowboy, a mechanic and welder, and the resident materials handling and logistics man! He's a Christian brother, a faithful son and helper to his mom, a supportive big brother, and the best ground crew man around! #26onthe26th #ranchkids #ranchlife #ranchlifeisgoodlife #farmlife #shepherd #keeperofthesheep #nevadagrown #couldntdothiswithouthim #sheep365

After a busy Saturday morning at the @carsonfarmersmarket, Rob finished mowing meadow hay in Washoe Valley. Tractor and mower worked well, and he finished up while the sun was still on McClellan Peak! What a joy to be making hay after no hay harvest during our move last year! #blessed #masseyferguson #masseyferguson165 #mf165 #kuhnmower #nevadagrown #nevadablue #washoevalley #makinghay #mowinghay #farmlife #ranchlife #ranchlifeisgoodlife ##grassfed
