Horses ♦ Healing ♦ Hope


Name –  Barb

Where are you from? Lincoln, Nebraska

What makes you want to volunteer at the Ranch?  I miss teaching kids, love horses and when I found out a horse named “Boaz” was at the ranch, that sealed my decision!

What is your coolest experience:  Finding my true love, my late husband, Dr. James A. Kennedy; then publishing my book about him.

What would you like to do but haven’t yet?  Riding a “bomb-proof” horse on a trail or beach.

What is your favorite movie?  The Horse Whisperer is my favorite movie of ALL time!

What’s the most amazing thing to you about God?  That I am saved by grace through faith and will be in eternity with Jesus and my earthly family and friends.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?  Gotta pee and I’m hungry!

Favorite horse experience? Meeting the blind horse “Hero” at Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch in Bend, Oregon. He played a part in saving my life.

Do you prefer salty or sweet, and why? Dark chocolate is not that sweet, but it’s my favorite “food group.”

What do you do when you see a mud puddle? Go around it!

If you could hear God speak 25 words to you, what would they be?  “You will understand in heaven why I have allowed so much pain in your life and that pain will be gone forever.”
