Question Just for fun: Unlikely celeb horse/equine owners?

I don't generally keep up with celebrities, but for those of you who do, I'd like to start a thread about famous people who own or have owned horses/equines...but people who you wouldn't ever expect to. (So country singers don't count here.)

For starters, while being bored in the library today I learned that Ozzy Osbourne had a pet donkey named Sally. And I heard some time back that rap star MC Hammer owned at least one racehorse.

So, what other "huh?!" celebs have entered the equine world that I should know about?

There is a biker bar in Sturgis that has a pet donkey who hangs out at the bar. There is a reality show about the bar. Full Throttle is the name I believe. Pretty cute and friendly donkey too:)

William Shatner is a MAJOR competitor in the Saddlebred world. He rides and drives. He also does reiners as well.

Carson Kressley is as well. He is such a doll and is a fantastic rider.

Kaley Cuoco (Penny on the Big Bang Theory) has at least one. I can't remember what season of the show, her lower half isn't shown really at all because she fell off and crushed one of her legs.

I imagine Viggo Mortenson still has TJ, his horse in Hidalgo. I can't remember if he bought one from Lord of the Rings either, or if he just bought one of them for another person.

Very much so. He owns Smart And Shiney, whose photos are in all sorts of ads. Oh how he makes me drool.

Here is a video testimonial with Carson Kressley an William Shatner. I can believe it when Mr. Shatner said he would probably have died twenty years ago without the horses. They are wonderful.

Portia DiRossi, actor, has a couple of horses and rides dressage. Jamie Foxx, comedian and actor, has a horse. It is my understanding that Viggo Mortensen did buy the horse he rode in Lord of the Rings.
