Kaley Cuoco is parting ways with old and has introduced new members in her family. The “Big Bang Theory” actress, who announced her split with husband Ryan Sweeting on Saturday, has welcomed a new horse named Zaza to her family through an Instagram photo.

"Welcome to the family, Zaza," Cuoco, 29, wrote on Instagram on Saturday. The picture shows her standing next to a horse in a natural avatar. She is dressed casually and does not have any make-up.

In the picture, Cuoco is also seen without her wedding band and engagement ring but the actress looks happy as she kisses the horse. Compared to Sweeting, Cuoco is a complete equestrian and also owns another horse named Thor, People magazine writes. An avid animal lover, Cucuo also has many pups at her home.

In her previous interview with the magazine, Cuoco said that Sweeting is “very scared” of horses and is also not very “comfortable with the whole thing.” The sportsman cannot ride a horse and gets quite nervous watching the actress ride on one.

"He gets nervous watching me so I have a hard time bringing him out. I force him to come out and watch," she said at that time. However, for Cuoco, the whole riding experience is very beautiful as it makes her feel “so earthy and natural.”

Cuoco and the tennis player, 28, got married on Dec. 31, 2013 after dating for a couple of years. The rumours of the trouble in their married life started earlier this year but the actress took to Instagram in April to deny them.

"I have never been more proud of anyone on this planet – this guy is fighting back from a whirlwind of injuries and not to mention constant 'conversation' regarding our marriage and basically any daily decision we decide to make," Cuoco wrote in April.

On Saturday, the couple's representative released a statement saying that they are ending their marriage soon and “request some privacy” at this difficult time.
