Willie Nelson rescued 70 horses from a slaughterhouse to let them roam freely at his Texas ranch

Not only is he still traveling at the age of 85, but he has also directed over 30 films and written many books.

The celebrity is frequently on the road, but when he isn’t, you can find him on his ranch in Texas Hill Country.

However, earlier this year, the vocalist saved 70 equines just in time– they were ready to be transferred to a slaughterhouse, and then to an adhesive plant.

It’s a dreadful destiny for these kind and beautiful creatures, and unfortunately, there are much more wild horses in holding facilities than in the wild.

Willie, a horse aficionado, couldn’t imagine that happening.

The singer, musician, poet, and lobbyist relocated the horses to Luck Ranch in Texas, some 30 miles outside Austin.

The vast majority of the farm animals he saved were slated for slaughter.

The cattle property is obviously fortunate, at least for the horses.

There, they have plenty of space to roam and are treated as kings and queens.

Willie’s fondness for animals is well substantiated: he references them in several of his songs.

Despite being at the age where the bulk of folks put their feet up in a retirement facility, this fantastic country music celebrity travels roughly 200 days every year.

Nelson enjoys nothing more than driving his ancient pickup vehicle around Luck Cattle ranch when he is not visiting.

Willie Nelson’s charitable involvement dates back a long time.

In 1985, he, Neil Young, and John Mellencamp decided to form Farm Aid to help and raise awareness about the importance of family farms.
