Thank you Willie Nelson and Habitat for Horses

Sunday, May 5th, 2013


Tara Roy recently took possession of her rescued horses from Willie Nelson’s ranch:

“OMG!!!!!! Just got Medicine Man and Accidental Outlaw, they are sooooo beautiful!!!!!! They were a little wild when we picked them up but are calming down nicely here at the house. Will send pictures soon. Just wanted to thank you for helping us get them.

WOW, now I have the horses of my dreams and the best looking paints in the county!!!!!   THANK YOU HABITAT FOR HORSES!!!!!!!!!”

Tara Roy

If you have room in your home or heart for a beautiful paint, you can see pictures of Willie Nelson’s signature paint horses available for adoption and get more information at Habitat for Horses Website here.


From the Habitat for Horses Website:

Not many know of a very special place called Luck, Texas. It’s a spot on the map outside Austin where many horses rescued from various ordeals, situations, abuse and neglect by Habitat for Horses have been offered the opportunity to reside on a peaceful ranch nestled in the Texas Hill Country.  Here they live free of their respective traumas at the home of an American Icon… Mr. Willie Nelson, a Country Music Legend.  Mr. Nelson and his daughter, Amy, have long been lovers of horses as well as faithful supporters for the rights of horses.  Mr. Nelson has graciously offered his home, a stunningly beautiful ranch in the Texas Hill Country as a safe haven for some of God’s most amazing creations.

Through the diligent efforts of Mr. Nelson, his daughter Amy, and Habitat for Horses, more than 70 of the horses rescued throughout the years by Habitat for Horses have been able to call his beautiful ranch their home. Here they have healed in body, mind and spirit and have flourished beyond our greatest expectations. Now a rare few are ready for their very own forever loving home with a family to train them and allow them to become their best friend.

David Roehm Sr., father of David Von Roehm,  Luck Films’ partner David Von Roehm, passed away recently.  Best wishes to his family.

David Von Roehm:

“David Roehm – my dad – left the stage tonight and went home to see his family and friends left behind. With bravery and grace he faced his illness as he lived his life. A greatest generation WWII vet, actor, restauranteur, jokester, and many other things but largely friend & family man and my hero – he will be missed by many but alive in the hearts of all he touched. Thanks dad – for all you are – an impossible act to follow. Love, Dave Jr. ”

Luck Films are currently in pre-production on “Cottonwood”, a family drama with Anthony Michael Hall headlining.
