    Thank you so much cmvet! That sounds exactly like whats going on, it fits the situation....new place, new food, everything....and he hasnt been put in yet with the herd. He's only been here a few days and seems settled otherwise, but I've yet to see him lay down. I guess he doesnt feel comfortable yet. I figured it was something along thoses lines, but I just wanted other opinions to be sure I wasnt looking over anything that could be serious, such as EPM or a nuerological problem.......

    Again, thanks so much! Im going to go immediately to the videos and th article.

    My horse does this too. My vet says it's sleep deprivation. I have owned him for 3 years and have never seen him sleep lying down. It scares the crap out of me, but it does sort of ebb and flow. He'll go for months without an episode and then it will happen several times in the same week. My horse drinks like a fish, so I'm starting to think it might be insulin resistance related. But so you know, however scary it looks, it has yet to cause injury to my horse. (knock wood) Hopefully he'll settle in to your place and take a good long nap.
