It was great to finally talk with Lacy J. Dalton. I have been a big fan since the early 80s. One of my favorite songs of hers is “16th Avenue” a great tribute song to all those that find their way to 16th Avenue in Nashville with dreams of making it big in the music world.
We talked about her involvement in wild horse rescue as well as non-wild horses and burros. It is an overlooked issue for sure! There are more folks living in the city that cannot have a horse, but that doesn’t mean we can’t help by offering donations to help save and place these horses to folks that can keep them.
Put on those headphones/earbuds and enjoy our conversation:

She also talks about how once trained wild horses help those suffering from PTSD. Here is a YouTube video that talks about this:
Background information from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Dalton has taken an interest in saving Nevada’s wild horses after she found some of them roaming around Virginia City.

About Let ’em Run Foundation
Started by internationally acclaimed country and western recording star, Lacy J. Dalton, the Let ’em Run Foundation is a totally volunteer organization staffed by Ms. Dalton and a group of devoted individuals dedicated to the welfare of America’s wild horses and burros.
The Let ’em Run Foundation operates solely through the help and generosity of our unpaid staff and volunteers, our benefactors, fundraising, benefit concerts, grants, and charitable individuals and organizations. With an average rescued horse or burro costing almost $4,000 a year to feed and care for, we expend all our financial resources to attend to the hundreds of horses and burros we save each year.
It is only through your financial support that we can continue to save the wild horses and burros for future generations to enjoy. Any help you can render will be greatly appreciated.
