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!

Knight Camp (August 2, 2019):
We had a lot of fun grooming horses, playing games, and learning about the duties of a knight/squire, and the knights code of honor.
If your kids are bored at home this summer, and are looking for something super fun to do… send them to Wolfe Ranch for our August 2, 2019 DayCamp (from 9 am to 4 pm).
Chuck Friend, a local photographer, Wolfe Ranch Volunteer, and Professional Renaissance Enthusiast will be coming to the ranch with his authentic 13th Century Knight armor and teaching us about Medieval Knighthood. Youth will be able to try on the armor, and then get their picture made with a knight. There will be medieval games and crafts, time with the horses, and so much more! Don’t delay register today before all of the slots are filled, please call 641-752-6446 or e-mail email@example.com to RSVP. The camp cost is $50.00 per child, which also includes lunch. We are so excited about hosting this camp, and we know your kids will be talking about this event for a long time after it’s over! Please share with your family and friends about this wonderful opportunity!
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
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!
