Earlier today, country music star Miranda Lambert shared a post to Twitter giving thanks to those in her life. Her thanks extend beyond just people in her life, however. The Twitter post featured a picture of Lambert and her beautiful horse, Ellie. She also noted in her post that her appreciation was for everyone in her life, “2-legs or 4.”
“This year has been crazy, but it made me appreciate the little things and be even more grateful for everything,” Lambert said in her post. “Especially those around me. 2-legs or 4, I’m thankful for everyone in my life, including y’all!”
She concluded by saying that she and her horse, Ellie, wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. Lambert is a certified horse girl, entering some of her horses in competitions regularly– and winning. She owns 400-acres of farmland outside of Nashville where she and her husband, Brendan McLaughlin, spend their time at home.
