Miranda Lambert is adding to her ever-growing “farmily” with the addition of a new horse named Cool.

Meet Cool

The country superstar took to social media on Tuesday to introduce fans to the charming horse, who caught the “Bluebird” singer’s attention with his gentle demeanor.  

“He is one of the sweetest horses I’ve ever met. He does it all with grace and patience and has already taught me so much,” Lambert shared alongside a clip featuring photos and videos of her and “Cool” on the farm together.  

She’s Taken Up A New Hobby

Lambert revealed that she’s taken to a new hobby during her time away from her Velvet Rodeo Las Vegas Residency and that Cool has been her partner through it all. 

“In the last few months, I’ve picked the hobby of mounted shooting and in the process I’ve made some amazing new friends including this handsome fella,” she wrote. “He came at the perfect time in my life when I needed a challenge and to try something new. I turned 40 in November and I’m ready for a decade of pushing myself to be better and bolder both personally and professionally. This feels like the perfect beginning to that journey.” 

She closed her post by thanking her friends for introducing her to Cool and declared, “Y’all get ready it’s gettin country and western around here!”

Returning To Las Vegas

In between tending to Cool and partaking in her new hobby of mounted shooting, the Texas native is also preparing to return to Vegas for the final shows of her residency. This last run will kick off on March 20 and run select dates through April 6 at the Bakkt Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. 

Lambert and her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, have found a second home in Vegas throughout her time performing in Sin City and she admitted to enjoying her time there. 

“It was just a shift and being away from home and our life is in Nashville, we split time in Texas, Nashville and New York…We’re in New York at ton ‘cause my husband’s from there and I go back to Texas a lot, but this was like, oh, we’re going way out west, so we’re going to make it a second home. So those were just all the thoughts I had and wondering how it was going to feel instead of rolling into these tiny towns I’ve loved for so long, these towns that I go see my fans that have been with me all this time,” she recently told ABC’s Tamron Hall.

What’s Next For Miranda Lambert In 2024?

As for what’s next, the sky’s the limit for Lambert. 

“I feel excited… I’m more open now to whatever’s supposed to come my way. A little more aware and a little less tunnel vision, because, luckily, I’ve worked hard enough to get to where I’ve reached a lot of my goals, so now I can be a little more free,” she shared. 

While Lambert has yet to reveal new solo music, she recently teamed up with Enrique Iglesias to release a duet titled, “Space In My Heart.” 

In December, she stirred up a wave of anticipation by performing alongside Lainey Wilson to unveil their duet “Good Horses,” though the duo has not yet announced a release date for the track.
