Meet “Matt” our newest addition….

Share This:

During our Princess Tea last week, our princesses were in for a huge surprise, as our newest ranch arrival—“Matt”-a Clydesdale arrived at his new home.

“Matt” stands at 18 hands and weighs 2,100 pounds.  “Matt” was born in Canada, and came to the U.S.A. when he was 4 years old.

“Matt” was recently donated to Wolfe ranch by Paul Snyder,   Paul wanted “Matt” to go to a good home where he will help people and make a difference. “Matt” will be used in our equine therapy program and our riding program, and you may even get to see him in future parades! Welcome “Matt”, and a special thank you to Paul!

This is a great example of how donations to Wolfe Ranch can literally come in all shapes and sizes.  If you interested in making a donation to Wolfe Ranch, please give us a call at 641-752-6446!

Lennox Quakerdale Ladies Visit Wolfe Ranch

Share This:

Recently, Wolfe Ranch and Quakerdale Family Services had the privilege to host some of the Ladies who were here in Marshalltown for the Lennox Quakerdale Golf Tounament.
The ladies enjoyed a facility tour, and then had fun becoming a “team” while they worked together “problem solve” and create a “solution” during EAL (Equine Assisted Learning) activities in our horse arena.
It was a great time for all who attended, and we hope that you will all come back to visit us soon! Click on the link below to enjoy all of the photos!


Summer’s On, Full Speed Ahead!

Summer’s “On”, Full Speed Ahead

After a unusually wet spring, Summer’s “On”, and  it’s full speed ahead for staff at Wolfe Ranch.  Our ranch staff  have been busy making visits with our horses to community events around the area.  We have even had requests for our horses to come and visit nursing homes, veterans, and other children’s groups.  A friend of the ranch has graciously allowed us to borrow a trailer for these outings, but we are currently seeking a new truck/trailer of our own.  If you like to give specifically towards this project, please send your donation to 2932 240th Street Marshalltown, IA  50158 and mark your donation for the Wolfe Ranch Trailer/Truck project.

We are thankful for Dave Smith, our ranch manager, as he has been busy making hay in his “spare time” (for our horses to eat this winter).  Dave also teaches riding lessons at Wolfe Ranch, and works hard to keep the ranch in great shape!  Thanks Dave for all you do!
