Lady Gaga Posts Touching Eulogy to Her Dying Horse Arabella After Duel-Win at Critic’s Choice Awards

After Sunday night’s (Jan. 13) big win at the Critics’ Choice Awards, Lady Gaga shared the news that her horse, Arabella “is dying.”

“I am honored and blessed to have won both Best Song and Best Actress alongside Glenn Close this evening,” Gaga wrote in a message posted to social media. “My heart is exploding with pride.”

However, the singer-turned-film-star rushed out of the award show once she received the news that her pale white mare was dying.

“She is and was a beautiful horse,” Gaga continued. “Our souls and spirits were one. When she was in pain, so was I. I will never forget the moments we shared.”

Arabella, a name that Gaga said means “yield and prayer,” was a gift from her record label, Interscope, back in 2015.

Accompanying the statement was a beautiful picture of Gaga wearing a white robe atop the majestic Arabella as they galloped on a patch of grass near the water. “She will forever be a part of me,” Gaga wrote.

Just a few hours later, Gaga posted what looks to be an older photo of her with Arabella as she sat in front of a white piano on Instagram.

I am so honored and blessed to have won both Best Song and Best Actress alongside Glenn Close this evening. My heart is exploding with pride. But it saddens me to say that just after the show I learned that my dear angel of a horse, Arabella, is dying. I am rushing to her now to say goodbye. Her name means ‘yield to prayer.’ She is and was a beautiful horse. Our souls and spirits were one. When she was in pain, so was I. I will never forget the moments we shared. Long hikes together, galloping through the canyons. Feeding her cookies. She will forever be a part of me. I am so very sad. But I wish for your pain to end, and the gates of heaven to open for you. I love you. Girl, where do you think you’re goin?
