Willie Nelson, an international icon, is a man of many talents and even more accomplished. Best known as a singer, Willie Nelson is credited with writing, singing and producing some of the greatest hits of all time. Besides being a gifted musician, Nelson is also a strong advocate for the legalization of marijuana. However, Nelson’s favorite hobby is loving his horses. Being the wildly successful singer-songwriter that he is, it’s no surprise that Nelson has amassed a sizable fortune. Unlike most wealthy celebrities, Nelson uses his money for good. For example, he purchased 700 acres of land to house 70 horses heading for slaughter.
Nelson’s farm is aptly named “Luck Ranch”. Nelson maintains that his horses are the luckiest in the world. Not only were they rescued at the 11th hour, but they are also pampered. Nelson says each horse is hand-fed twice a day and receives only the best care under his supervision. Nelson has long been known for his love of horses.
Four years ago, he won the People’s Silver Telly Award for his efforts to end horse slaughter. At the ripe old age of 86, Willie Nelson has no plans to slow down. He will forever be an avid fan of horses and he continues to tour to this day.
According to Nelson, he has vowed to retire many times, but his musical inclinations inspire him to “go out and play again.” These days, you’ll find Nelson on the road with his bandmates. When he’s not selling shows, Nelson is perfecting his cannabis business, Willie’s Reserve. From marijuana and horses to music and touring, Willie Nelson is a man of many passions.
