When the fire raged through their wooded community, Mark and Marsha Benjamin escaped, but had to leave their horses behind. She’d raised her seven horses from the moment each was born.
“My children will grow up and each live their own lives" she said, "but these horses are my responsibility forever.”
Working closely with the Larimer County Sheriff's Posse, Larimer Humane Society coordinated the rescue of her horses and she was reunited with them yesterday.
