Willie Nelson adopted two abused horses from South Carolina after they were removed from the property of their owner by the Berkeley County Animal Control Department.
The horses, a 12-year-old Thoroughbred mare and a 3-year-old Medicine Hat Paint Stallion, will soon decamp to Nelson's Texas ranch.
A television news journalist, who reported on the case, said she sent Nelson a copy of her interview with Elizabeth Steed of the Livestock and Equine Awareness and Rescue Network:
"During the interview I told the reporter that these horses should be the face of what's happening with animal cruelty, and that I hoped someone famous like Willie Nelson would adopt them."
"It's amazing and it's wonderful," she added, regarding Nelson's deed.
Both horses have gained weight and are in better health since being confiscated.
