Shania Twain took part in the two-hour ACM Presents: Our Country special on Sunday and welcomed a very special guest during her performance.

While performing “Honey I’m Home” and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” from a stable at her ranch, the superstar was joined by one of her horses, who nearly stole the show when it interrupted her performance to gently nuzzle her. Her dog also made an appearance but appeared to be rather sleepy.

Twain, being the pro that she is, wasn’t fazed by the interruption.

Prior to her performance, Twain offered a hopeful message to fans, assuring, “we’re all in this together.”
