- Sugar Spring Ranch Mascot -

Meet the one-of-a-kind venue mascot, Sam, the zebra. Sam is 8 years old and is a real party animal! He enjoys taking pictures with wedding couples and grazing through the pastures. At night, Sam loves to look up at The Ranch and admire the disco lights from his field. Feel free to wave hello when you see him walking around on sunny days!

- Pest Control Manager -

Meet our pest control manager! She does an excellent job keeping out those who are not permitted in our venue. Urie resides in the barn next door to Sugar Spring Ranch, but wanders over sometimes to say hello during tours. While Urie is friendly and enjoys pets, she dislikes crowds and makes herself scarce on busier days. Most days she spends laying by the lake and keeping a watchful eye on the property.
