Miranda Lambert has a pretty cool new family member!

The country star, 40, is now the proud mom of a horse named Cool, who she called "one of the sweetest horses I've ever met."

"He does it all with grace and patience and has already taught me so much. In the last few months, I've picked up the hobby of mounted shooting, and in the process, I've made some amazing new friends, including this handsome fella," Lambert shared on Instagram.

She explained that Cool came into her 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," explained Lambert.

The "If I Was a Cowboy" singer credited horsewoman Kenda Lenseigne with helping her find a horse that was a "match made in cowgirl heaven."

"Mark and Karen Plumlee loved this horse so much and are kind enough to trust me with him for his next adventures. Y'all get ready it's gettin country and western around here," added Lambert.

Back in February, Lambert traveled to Arizona with her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, to take lessons with Lenseigne.

"Literally. He doesn’t ride but figured it all out pretty quick. Kenda, you made a cowboy out of our NYC boy. 😂🤠🐴. We celebrated 5 years married on horse back this year. Love ya babe. ❤️ couples who cowboy together ….," wrote Lambert on Instagram.

In February 2019, the musician revealed that the two had secretly married and referred to him as "the love of my life."

During an appearance on the Tamron Hall Show in January, she noted that one of the things she likes most about McLoughlin is that he is a "truth-teller."
