The Kentucky Derby may have struck a chord with Miranda Lambert feeling a little festive. Just a few days before her appearance at the 140th horse race at Churchill Downs in Kentucky, Lambert added a new member to her and Blake Shelton's family.

The couple are now proud parents to a beautiful blonde pony named Willowbrand. Lambert used her Instagram account to share the news with her fans.

"Welcome our newest family member! Willowbrand Saith ap Michael...Shelton," she captioned with the photo next to the hashtag #ponypic. Lambert posed in a denim on denim outfit with the pony, looking very happy with her new pet. The two share one thing in common: long, luxurious blonde hair.

Lambert's love for animals is no secret so it's not a surprise that she would add a gorgeous new pony to her family just in time for the Kentucky Derby. The 30-year-old frequently uses her Instagram account to post photos of her "shelter babies" as she calls them. Lambert also helped to form MuttNation Foundation, which uses donations to try and help end animal suffering and homelessness here in the U.S.
