DOREY & MARIMBA
One year ago they arrived at STAR Ranch, broken spirits and poor health. They are full brother and sister, 16 and 17. Marimba is the gray gelding, Dorey is the roan mare. It would be nice if they could be adopted or sponsored together, but not essential.
One year, nearly to the day, this brother and sister are now going to TRAILS where they will work with troubled youth this summer. They have a wonderful purpose and new lease on life. This is why we do what we do and why STAR needs to stay forever in Haywood County.
Cocoa is a tatooed saddlebred mare. She appears to have had a cart wreck and is compromised in her back end. It's doubtful she will be rideable. She has dropped weight this winter and could really use a sponsor!
This is Mya, a late teenager who will remember how to ride again with a little TLC. Beautiful quarter horse mare.
Connie is only 7 years old and learning to trust again. This Arabian mare was ridden a few years ago, is only 14.5 hands and perfect for a smaller rider with patience to bring her back under saddle. $300 adoption fee.
This 17 year old Tennessee Walker mare came to STAR 5 days after she tangled in barbed wire and fell onto a metal post, puncturing her right hip. She was unable to receive any veterinary care until she arrived, too late for stitching. Treating an open would round the clock, antibiotics, pain meds and supplements make this gal high maintenance! But worth it.
Pony of America, Cinnamon is gaining weight, but will never regain the ground he lost as a colt. Only 14 hands, he's 'cute as a button.' Adoption fee $400.
The mini horse in this picture is Booger (Little John). He would love a BIG sponsor!
This older gal will most likely live out her life at STAR. Her family grew up and moved away. She is the gentlest spirit and could use a new friend.
