Sheryl Crow has rescued a wild mustang from extermination and now she wants other horse lovers to do the same.
The singer/songwriter was horrified to learn of government plans to get rid of the creatures and wants to lead by example because she thinks it's important that Americans fight to save such a valuable part of the country's history.
She says, "There's legislation going on right now about exterminating these great wild mustangs... (They're) truly one of the great representatives of our native culture here in America.
"Wild mustangs are really true to the heritage of this country; they help us to remember who we were.. (and) the government is trying to have them run off cliffs and things."
The newest member of Crow's animal menagerie is currently being looked after by friends, while the singer tours - but she'll eventually welcome the wild horse to her ranch in Tennessee.
