Just 30 miles outside Austin, Texas, you will find Luck Ranch, which is home to some very lucky horses. Several of the 70 horses that call the ranch home were once bound for slaughterhouses, but thanks to Willie Nelson their fate changed.

With nowhere else to go, the horses were destined for an unfortunate end. Fortunately, they caught the attention of the country superstar, who stepped up to sᴀᴠᴇ their ʟɪᴠᴇs. Thanks to Willy Nelson, the horses are now enjoying life on his 700-acre ranch.

Unquestionably these horses are truly lucky too and Nelson wholeheartedly agrees:

“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 sʟᴀᴜɢʜᴛᴇʀ is probably the last thing they remembered, so they’re happy horses.”

Willie even wrote a letter to the Senate of the United States asking them to ban the sʟᴀᴜɢʜᴛᴇʀ of horses in America. His horses he Rᴇsᴄᴜᴇᴅ live on a 700-acre ranch in Texas Hill Country and get to roam wild and free. Willie says he spends most of his time on the ranch when he’s not on the road traveling around playing music. He calls his ranch “Luck” and said this with a smile:

“When you’re here, you’re in Luck, and when you’re not, you’re out of Luck.”

Despite being at the age where the majority of people are placing their feet up in a retirement community, this fabulous country music celebrity still spends around 200 days a year when traveling. When he’s not visiting Nelson likes absolutely nothing more than driving his old pick up truck around Luck Cattle ranch.

Willie’s passion for horses has even made its way into his music. His song, Ride Me Back Home, is a testament to his love for horses. He recently released another horse-inspired song, We Are The Cowboys, which features many scenes of horses in the music video.

At 87, Willie is still active in music, performing his beloved songs to his dedicated fans. Thanks to Nelson, these horses are now living a wonderful life, free of their rocky pasts.
