Remembering Kathy Benson

We lovingly remember long-time Freedom Farm friend Kathy Cooley Benson, who passed away recently. She was a good friend to the people and animals of the Farm, often helping with our events over the years, along with her husband Benny. She kept a sack of horse treats in her open locker for all to dip into, and was ready with a smile and a helping hand, as you can see in these photos we found from 2013 (see below).

At Kathy's request, a collection was taken up her memory, to sponsor a young rider at our youth beach camp this year. Thanks to all who quickly provided the full sponsorship, and thank you, Kathy, for your kindness, love and support all these years!
