Darlene Aldridge, owner of Star Creek Ranch, has been featured in an article for Cowgirl Magazine! As a nationally distributed publication exclusively for women, Cowgirl sought out Darlene to shine a light on her passion for living a modern Western lifestyle in present-day.
The article takes an in-depth look at the history and near extinction of Texas Longhorns in the 19th century all the way up to today in which they have now become iconic symbols of the Old West. This is because of the hard work and dedication of Longhorn breeders like Darlene.
We are taken inside her thriving ranch full of Longhorns that she faithfully raised from calves all the way to full-grown. After retiring from her public veterinary practice, she devoted her life to fostering their great legacy and spreading the joy of owning Longhorns with people all over the country.
Star Creek Ranch produces the finest Longhorns, many from Darlene’s lead sire, Starbase Commander, whose progeny regularly grows 100 or more inches of horn. Even with a couple hundred Texas Longhorns living on her ranch, Darlene is proud to know each one by name.
The article effectively highlights her utmost respect for these All-American treasures. “I’ve always loved Longhorns,” says Darlene in the article.To read the full piece, go to the Cowgirl Magazine website.
