Behind the Scenes

Glimpses of horse-related activities at Miracles

There are lots of activities necessary to keep the Miracles herd happy and healthy.  The farrier has to trim their hooves regularly. New horses arrive and get introduced to the rest of the herd as well as to the work they will do as therapy horses. Here you can see some of what happens to keep the Miracles herd happy, healthy, and in shape.

Memphis arrives at Miracles. Memphis is our most recently donated horse and he is still learning how to be a therapy horse. He is doing very well and has enchanted most of the volunteers since his arrival. He spent his first several days at Miracles with Shadow, at right in photo below, who came to Miracles just a week earlier.


Blaze gets a summer shave. Blaze has lots of fur that is too warm for comfort in the Iowa summer. Watch as he gets a shave.
