Our small herd of horses has a strong bond. They love running together through our pastures and enjoying the wonderful mountain weather.
Our pretty pony, Dottie, loves kisses. Come see her prance around the Round Pen. She loves visitors!
Gypsy is a young charmer who loves to play. She’s a beauty and she knows it!
Leo loves jumping the obstacles in the Herding Pen. It's such a treat to see him enjoying himself.
"Oh, that's the spot!" Londo loves affection! He is a beloved figure on our Instagram page. Follow @BlueStarRanchNC to keep up with the latest happenings around the Ranch.
The Rings have selected a herd of beautiful animals that are full of personality and willing to engage with people of all ages and skill levels. We have two miniature horses, a tiny pony, a quarter horse, and a young mare who loves to snuggle. Our three geldings, Leo, Londo, and Smoky, are an inseparable trio that we’ve dubbed “The Three Amigos.” All of our animals are eager to please and happy to run the Herding Pen and work the Round Pen. They’re excellent, compassionate companions. Welcome home, Little Herd!
Gypsy is our 7-year-old filly, a young charmer who loves to play. She’s a beauty and she knows it! We call her “Pretty Girl,” and she is Londo’s favorite. She charms all the boys, including Carl. It’s a challenge to keep her white mane and feathers in show condition, but we’re getting skilled at our braiding! Gypsy is learning by leaps and bounds. We have recently completed her cart pull training, to honor her breeding as a Gypsy Vanner.
Little Joe was named after Little Joe from Bonanza, he is on the smaller side, standing 14.2 hands high, but makes up for his size with his large and charming personality. This 14-year-old palomino Quarter Horse gelding loves to nibble and play with his lips! His curious personality makes him eager to search out treats from all.
Londo is a 17-year-old Dutch Warmblood Thoroughbred cross with a white mane and black tail (16.1hh). His sire is the late, great Art Deco. Londo has a “puppy dog” personality, meaning he loves following you around and having his withers scratched. Londo joined Blue Star Ranch already having worked as a therapy horse in Florida. Londo is named after South Africa’s Londolozi, a game preserve and safari adventure destination whose name means “Protector of All Living Things.” The Rings traveled to Londolozi and returned to the States with a dream of making their own protected land, and animals, a reality.
Rocky & Rosie
Rocky is our 2-year-old miniature gelding. He stands at 26.5 inches (6.5 hands) tall. He is learning new tricks each day and loves to bond with all of our staff and visitors.
Rosie is our 2-year-old miniature mare. You can tell her apart from Rocky by the white blaze on her face. She is 26 inches (6.5 hands) tall. She is very smart and much sweeter than her brother, Rocky. She loves treats and is always eager for a neck scratch.
