British pop star Lily Allen has added two new members to her family after buying a pair of racehorses.
The Smile hitmaker gave up her music career to focus on bringing up her daughter Ethel in rural England, and now she has embraced the countryside lifestyle by taking up horse-riding.
She visited East Everleigh Stables in Wiltshire, South West England earlier this month (Jul12) and bought a two-year-old colt called Polish Rider, as well as a share in another two-year-old horse, Ombrellino.
Trainer Richard Hannon's son Richard Hannon, Jr. tells Britain's Daily Star, "It was great to have Lily in the yard and her presence cheered the lads up.
"Polish Rider is good-looking and he's a big, imposing sort."
