86-year-old singer Willie Nelson shows no signs of slowing down!
The star is usually on the road, but when he isn’t, you can usually find him on his ranch out in the Texas Hill Country.
After all, that’s where his beloved horses reside!
Recently, the singer rescued 70 horses in the nick of time—they were about to be sent to the slaughterhouse, and then to a glue factory. It’s a horrible fate for these kind and majestic animals.
As a lover of horses, Willie couldn’t see that happen. They now live on his 700-acre property, dubbed “Luck Ranch.”
The ranch is indeed lucky, at least for the horses. There, they have tons of space to roam and are treated like kings and queens.
According to The Epoch Times, Willie said, “My horses are probably the luckiest horses in the world. They get hand-fed twice a day, and they were just ready to go to slaughter is probably the last thing they remembered, so they’re happy horses.”
Willie’s love for the animals is well documented: he mentions them in many of his songs.
