Willie Nelson, along with many family members, has released a song to help horses through the Animal Welfare Institute. Willie wrote on the AWI website, “I’m a little prejudiced when it comes to horses. I have always loved them. I currently have about 68; 25-30 were rescued directly from slaughter. I got involved 8 years ago, when AWI first made me aware that American horses are being slaughtered and shipped overseas for human consumption. It’s a shame horses – or any animal – be treated this way when horses are the foundation of America. Horses were a way to travel to get to where we are today, and it is our job to protect them.” (Source: AWI.org)
The proceeds from the 99 cent song to help the horses and halt the roundups will go to AWI. It can be purchased on CD Baby, and Apple iTunes.
