Houdini entertains St. Luke's residents

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Houdini the horse and his trainer, Dick Wallen (above) of Wallen Stables in Sioux City, put on an afternoon show at St. Luke Lutheran Home in Spencer Thursday. Wallen, who will mark his 92nd birthday in February 2013, has owned and worked with Houdini since the horse was one-year old. After performing some amazing tricks for the residents, Houdini greeted St. Luke residents and staff members. St. Luke resident Mary Uhe (below) had the opportunity to pet Houdini.
