Horse stretch

Does anyone else here have a horse that stretches out really weird? My big girl will drop her front end, legs way out in front, and stretches like a cat! Funniest thing I have ever seen and I never have my camera when she does it. It's going to freak me out if she ever decides to do it while I'm riding her! It's bad enough when she does the full body shake when I'm up on her.

Both of my 5yo geldings stretch out this way. I was highly amused the first time I saw it bc I went from an againg and passing away herd in their 20's to youngin's and it's great to watch them stretch and to see them jump up like a dog from "natvity position."
I'm taking pics all of the time bc I got a really nice pocket camera (Nikon S2600) for Christmas. I know I'll catch them after-napping like this sooner or later.

Casey will lift her head up as high and she can, tucks in her head, and stretches and makes grunting noises!!

Bailey does the grunting thing when she stretches, too. She'll also grunt like a pig when she's laying down and starts swaying back and forth to scratch her belly.

Yes, my paint stretches like a cat too. Especially after the night in stall.

My qh stretches her back legs re-e-e-ally long: one, stand and think, then other.
