Willie's Fillies Need Your Help

11/11/2007 6:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Willie NelsonIn addition to being an outspoken activist for ... um, herbal remedies, country music icon Willie Nelson has another cause close to his heart: horses. Of course he does -- he's Willie freakin' Nelson!

Willie himself has personally rescued a number of horses, and he sits on the Board of Directors of a group called Habitat for Horses. On November 13 and 14, Willie and daughter Amy, Bo Derek and the luscious Barbi Twins -- are all going to Capitol Hill to voice their support for the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act. Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to slaughter horses!

The country outlaw even wrote a passionate letter to his fans to implore them to help. Click here to read it.

George Clooney is a Pu$$y    

You celebrates are rich so why not use your own money for your little Save the _______. (You fill in the blank). I am tired of the rich celebrates being so passionate about there little projects, but when it come to putting their fortunes behind it that's where the buck stops. They ask us poor people for the money while they go on living the lives of the rich and famous.

Here is an idea you rich celebrates who have little projects going and you are asking money for it. First, you give every penny you own to it. Second, you come ask me, and when I see that you are so passionate about your horses that you are no poor like me. I will give you money for you cause.

Willie is not dating Sheehan, he's been happily married to Annie for years. And the IRS was paid back in full, because Willies good friends (Kris Christoferson and others) paid it off for him because of all the things he had done for them over the years. As for divorces and such, until you walk a mile in someone elses shoes, don't be so fast to judge. He's proved his patriotism by his actions over the years.

Insert comical name here    

I love Willie. Horses are a bit of a hard case. Very few people have the space or the resources to devote to rescue horses. We as a country do a horrible job with household pets such as dogs and cats, I think horses are maybe out of reach. Again, I love Willie and think this is a good cause, I just don't see too many solutions to the problem.
P.S.-Never heard the Cindy S thing before, please say it ain't so.

I have a solution, crack down on casual breeding. It's not just dog and cats, it happens with horses too. It's not as 'easy' having horse rescues, so most end up at the slaughter house. Good horses too, although any and all deserve better. It can be stopped, if people would realize simply having a mare and access to a stallion isn't a valid reason to breed. You shouldn't produce foals simply because you can, rather only the best of the best should be bred and even then only for a valid reason. Dogs and cats are often bounced from home to home, even more so with horses. A weanling might be sold to a good home, but that doesn't mean it won't end up in slaughter at some point in it's life. There are plenty of horses (including PLENTY looking for new homes now), please stop casual breeding. It's true--if you're not part of the solution, you're a part of the problem.
