Goodbye to Tika

Posted by on Aug 20, 2015 in News/Events, stories their | Comments Off on Goodbye to Tika

STAR Help a Horse Parade 2015

STAR Ranch had another successful parade this year in downtown Waynesville NC. The weather was a bit foreboding but the skies parted and sunshine rained down on our parade! Thank you to all who participated in the parade and all those who came out to see us in spite of gloomy skies! Our “star” horse this year was Levi, one of our success stories.
