The 25-year-old singer is completely devoted to her horse Goose, dog Misty and rabbit Melrose. Her love for them hasn`t diminished since she became famous, and Leona often snubs Hollywood parties to spend time with her animals.
"I dote on them," she admitted. "Lots of hugs, kisses and cuddles."
While she gives all her pets equal attention, it is her horse that truly has her heart. Leona adores the animal, and rides him every chance she gets. Earlier this year, she even had a poem about horses tattooed on her back to pay tribute to her favourite equine.
"My favourite hobby is riding horses," Leona told the US edition of OK! magazine. "I love nature and enjoy learning new skills."
Leona also shows her love for animals by collecting equestrian art, and making regular donations to the World Society for the Protection of Animals.
"They campaign to change laws to stop the cruel treatment of animals," she said.
