The adoption of a mini-horse is not out of character for the couple since Cook is a professional equestrian and Cuoco is seasoned in the sport. Though Shmooshy is new to the limelight, there’s never been a better time to get to know her than now, before she becomes a bigger celebrity than Miss Asia Kinney. (Maybe.) Here are five quick facts about Shmooshy that you need to know.

1. Her Name is Shmooshy

Yes, her name is Shmooshy, like ‘smooshy’ with an extra ‘h’ added for pizzazz. According to Cuoco, this name choice was inspired by the horse’s nose, which “is all shmooshed.”

2. She Was Adopted with the Help of The Peeps Foundation

The Peeps Foundation is an organization dedicated to rescuing dwarf mini horses with special needs and giving them a forever home.

3. She Really Likes Bows
