What do we do?

Greetings from the Wolfe Ranch.  Last week at the ranch,  a young man randomly stopped by  and asked “what do you do here?  I heard that kids live here, do they?”   We are thankful that this young man stopped by, and we were glad to give him a tour, and answer his questions; but in reality, as our staff meets people in the community, we are often asked these same questions!   To answer his question, and maybe your question also,  “No, children do not live at Wolfe Ranch, and they have not lived here at the ranch for about 15 years now”.   So now you may be wondering just like this young man,  What exactly “do we do” at Wolfe Ranch?

Meet “Matt” our newest addition….

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!
