Taking on her newest role, Ashley Judd has become the proud godparent of a striking baby Lipizzan horse.

Looking to be in love with the stunning young stallion, the "High Crimes" actress posed with the steed named Rodesia while in Going, Austria earlier today (October 19).

In other news, Ashley, like many others, continues to deal with the shocking death of Indy race car driver Dan Wheldon, of whom was competing against her husband Dario Franchitti during Sunday's fateful event.

Remembering her friend with words near to her heart, Judd tweeted, "As we continue to absorb Dan's accident -- we forget, remember, re-experience shock, denial, anger, pain -- I'm reminded of a favorite poem: DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so, For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow, Due not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me. From rest & sleepe, which but thy pictures be, Much pleasure then from thee, much more must flow, And soonest our best men with thee doe goe, Rest of their bones, and soules deliverie. One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally, And death shall be no more; death, thou shalt die. J Donne."
