Luisa Zissman has had her horse stuffed.
The 'Celebrity Big Brother' star devastatingly lost her pet horse Madrono in December 2019 after a four-year battle with cancer, and she has gone to a taxidermist to have her late equine stuffed, so he can now be displayed in the front of her home.
Taking to Instagram, she wrote: "The day we were reunited ... I know I’m weird, I know this isn’t normal but when Madrono had to be PTS due to melanomas (cancer) I was shattered. I had seen @simon_the_stuffa amazing work and he was the first person I called ... I can’t describe the overwhelming heartbreak when Madrono died I spent a week in bed and got stress induced vertigo (pathetic I know). Seeing him again today was so incredible
"He’s perfect, his kind eyes are exactly the same, the little swirls in his coat, his beautiful mane all so perfect. Thank you @simon_the_stuffa and your team. You really have made me so happy! (Even though I’m ugly crying) ... And for those who listen to @annawilliamsonofficial and I LuAnna : The Podcast, you will be relieved to hear his b**ls are still intact. Madrono will take pride of place in the entrance hall of my new house. (sic)"
Madrono sadly passed away in December 2019 after battling with "aggressive melanomas" for four years.
Writing at the time of the horse's death, she said: "My heart is broken. RIP Madrono, you were simply one in a trillion. I’m sorry I couldn’t do anymore for you. For 4 years we have battled your melanomas and although I knew this day would come one day, I didn’t quite believe it. You’ve been the best horse ever for nearly 6 years. So many amazing happy memories. I can’t believe it. Heartbroken doesn’t come close. thank you for being the best ever. (sic)"
