70 Horses were saved by Willie Nelson From a Slaughterhouse

Willie Hugh Nelson (born April 29, 1933) is famous among people as an American singer, songwriter, musician, actor, producer, author, poet and activist. He was one of the leading figures of the outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed in the late 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound. Nelson has acted in more than 30 films, co-authored several books and participated in activism for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana. Apart from that, he is a horse lover where he rescued 70 horses from being slaughtered. Now they are wandering around their 700-acre ranch in Texas.

He spends his time at Luck Ranch when he is not on the road. It is your home and the name "Luck" is adapted in more ways than one. Nelson told Paul Venema of KSAT 12 News: "When you're here, you're in Luck, and when you're not there, you're out of Luck.

The horses, no doubt, are also lucky, and Nelson agrees. He told Venema:

"My horses are probably the luckiest horses in the world. They get fed by hand twice a day, and were ready to go to the slaughter, probably the last thing they remember, so they are happy horses. "
According to the Epoch times, Nelson has a great love for horses. His song Ride Me Back Home, for example, demonstrates the love he has for the animal. In 2015, he won an award for his song called The Love of Horses. The video shows Nelson meeting with members of Habitats for Horses who were trying to put an end to the killing of working horses so that new legislation could be passed.

Not only does Nelson have a love for horses, but it is also in his family. Nelson's son, Lukas, helps save American horses, as well as Habitat for horses. And Nelson's youngest band, Lukas Nelson & Promise, has also sung praises for the horses.

Nelson, who is almost 90 years old, shows no signs of slowing down or remaining silent about the problems he feels overwhelmingly. Do you remember his record against Monsanto?
