If you already follow The Ranch on Instagram, you may already know that every Thursday a Rancher takes the helm of our account to tell their story. Ranch Life Takeovers are an opportunity to hear from people who are the heart and soul of The Ranch. Instagram was created for smart phones—to help us all channel creativity as we document our day-to-day life.
