I knew/know a couple. They couldn't lock their legs real well, so when they were tied up they would fall down if they fell asleep, real pain! They're rescues.

Lady doesn't even bother fighting it. The minute she sees that grooming box (the tool box), and I put the halter on her she starts relaxing. The pic in my avatar I had just started picking her mane out and she already has the droopy eyes going on. Her head gets lower, and lower, and her eyes get heavier. If I don't make her move occasionally she goes completely to sleep, and eventually lays down. The first time it happened it scared me, but since then it has become the usual thing, so I just make her move some to wake her up.

My mustang has learned to appreciate the grooming process since I've gentled him. He doesn't fall completely asleep or anything, but he definitely relaxes into it. I haven't been tying him either, and he'll stand quite contentedly. The main reason he hasn't been tied though is because I've just barely begun training him to stand tied.

Is it possible the horse is catatonic? Learned about it in class today and thought of this thread lol

Mine did that whenever we were in a showmanship class. But of course not when we were practicing Dork

Did you happen to be in Wisconsin at the time, and was it like 20 yrs ago? It was probably my horse. Did it all the time. Got to be kind of a joke at the shows

I would give her a poke with my finger the moment she started to nod off.

Seems very strange to me!
