LA VALLE (WKOW) -- Barb Knopf first made headlines as our Jefferson Award Winner in September.
Wednesday, she did again, as she was given the Wisconsin Heroes Award by First Lady Tonette Walker.
Knopf began the Luvs Morgan Horse Rescue in La Valle 15 years ago and has saved hundreds of horses from being euthanized.
She also founded Veterans Equine Trail Services, or V.E.T.S.
It's a program that allows veterans of war to train, ride and take care of the horses as a way to recover from the effects of war.
The Wisconsin Heroes Award is given each month to an outstanding Wisconsin resident.
