What does your horse do when he is relaxed?

Okay I didnt know were to put this so... yeah So like whenever my horse gets relaxed his lower lip kind just droops, he doesnt think about holding his lips together Any how, I was wondering if any other horses do this? I have never seen a horse do this before when they get relaxed... His lip just hangs their quivering... Its so cute If your horses do this I would love to see some photos!!! Anyway, here is some photos of him.

My goofball does the same thing. It's terribly cute, and I think he has learned to do it on command to get me to stop what I am doing and pet him. I must admit, though, the first time I saw it I was like 'what the...?':):)

He knows when you're happy
He knows when you're comfortable
He knows when you're confident
And he always knows when you have carrots.

Oh, Cinny does that all the time. And it's really funny when he tosses his head while doing it because it makes a flapping noise flub flub flub. It's funny when we ride because you can here him flubbing all over the arena.

Here is a picture of Mr Floppy lip shaking his head!

My horse is such a doofus. He groans and yawns when he's relaxed. I love the droopy lip

My friend's horse does this always, to the point that you can see like 1 1/2inch of his inner lip. He is a goober.

my friend's horse goes to sleep in the cross ties. He was an ex race horse and I guess that's something they do. My pony is almost never relaxed xD he's always on alert when I brush him, but during those rare moments when he can take a breather he likes to lean on me xD in the cross ties, of course, so I dun get squishied xP

I totally love these pics. I am a stupid sucker for Horse Lips for some reason - I just think they're so darn cute, and these little droopy lips crack me up!

The horse I ride shifts his hips around and takes his weight off one of his back feed and kind of cocks it forward when he's chilled out. I think of it as his Hooker Pose.
