I have a bit of a hang-up about my horses lying down due to some sad past experiences. So now I see my 6 year old Stdbd lying down during the day and I get all nervous about it. I keep telling myself: It's a good thing. She's relaxed. Don't fret it... but I do. Other than that, she seem fine. So I think I just need some input from other horses to calm me down. Surely there are other horses that just love to relax as much as she does?
So the 6yr old lies down, oh, 1 - 3 times a day. The other one, 9 yrs old, lies down maybe, *maybe* once a week.
