Pretty new to horses, so everything seems weird. Just wanted to see if this is normal or something I should worry about.
We have a two year old philly who acts more like a puppy than a horse. This morning when I went out to the shed, she was lying down in her stall. Not spread out or anything, just kneeling.
She got up and ate and then followed me around while I did chores. We just recently put these stalls in and it was raining a little today so they were all up in the barn early.
Is this normal or something that I should watch? I have only seen her lay down a few other times during the summer.
No coughing, discharge, or any other sign of distress. Good appetite. Only recent diet change is that I started adding a quarter coffee cup of beet pulp to her feed last week.
