Kaley-Cuoco-Horse.lgI never like to hear about celebrity relationships ending, but evidently they do and quite often. According to DivorceHelp360, “the national divorce rate rests between 40 and 50 percent,” but it seems as though the media is constantly informing the general public of romantic separations and conscious uncoupling among celebrity spouses.


There were many celebrity relationships that hit the skids of the summer, including divorce announcements by Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green, and others. Recently, Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco announced divorce proceedings from her professional tennis player husband Ryan Sweeting.


Just a few weeks ago, Cuoco took to Instagram to share a photo of her and Sweeting looking happy while standing with their three dogs in a fountain. Such a sad news, especially considering that there are pets involved in the relationship equation that will now either find sole custody with Cuoco or may still spend time with Sweeting, depending on who actually claims ownership of each pet.


Shortly after the public news of the divorce, TMZ reported that Cuoco shared a photo of a her acquisition of a new equine companion with the announcement, “welcome to the family, Zaza!”  (the photo included in the TMZ article no longer appears on Cuoco’s social media).


The world is fairly used to seeing endearing photos of celebrities with their companion canines, but less frequently do we see them with horses. Via Instagram, Cuoco commonly features photos of her dogs, horses and even some canines available for adoption.


From the view she shares with the public, Cuoco appears to be an avid horsewoman engaging in leisure or competitive activities on a regular basis. Cuoco featured a photo of herself decked out in full jockey gear and looking somewhat alarmed by her horse’s behavior with the caption, “A ride on Santos is always a crap shoot! You never know what you’re gonna get!”


She also shared a photo of her horse Rocky having a drink from an eco-friendly bottle with the caption, “Rocky loves my s’wellbbottle as much as I do!!!!!!!!”


Additionally, there’s a photo of Cuoco, two horses, and an esteemed equestrian (human) pal with the caption, “Derby training w my little love Zoey Pacyna she’s baaaaaaack!!!!” We also know the name of another of Cuoco’s horses via the photo of her with a large, black and brown horse.


It’s great to see another species get attention on social media thanks to Cuoco’s frequent posts. I hope that Zaza incorporates well into Cuoco’s stable and they have many healthy years together.


If Cuoco reads this, I’d love to extend my holistic veterinary house call and acupuncture services to dogs, and can be contacted through my website. As I don’t feel like I’m a master of equine general practice nor horse-specific acupuncture I’d have to leave such work up to other veterinarians that are more skilled with large-sized animals than me.
