Fire few times it happened, I FREAKED, thought they'd all died of botulism or something.
LOL that is too funny!

Oh wow, I'm sure that got a few laughs!

Well one day he was laying there looking dead like usual and nobody thought anything about it until another day went by and another and everyone suddenly realized that OMG he WAS dead!

Oh no, poor guy :(
So now that the horse is no longer in his pasture, do they still refer to it as the "dead horse pasture" as a reference point?

Me: Initially, laughing quite hard, and then...Ohhhh!...POOR GUY!...poor horse parents! (yet nonetheless, a REALLY cute anecdote; mainly the 'dead horse pasture' landmark portion.That, and the, "OMG! He really WAS dead"! part) <-- does that make me look a "bad person"? Yikes! O.o

Robbie tends to play dead from time to time. I took some pictures of him doing so and found out why he was playing dead...


"HI MOM!!"



"OH HI DASH"



"UM. DON'T WANNA GET UP. GONNA PLAY DEAD."



"NOW YOU KNOW WHY I DIDN'T WANNA GET UP."

I know eh! He absolutely killed it!
The funny part is that he's done this before...all with blankets that have been maybe a week old. I'm lucky if ANY of his blankets last him longer than a month haha.

I love your pic Blush, of your grey horse's legs sticking straight out lying on their side! Lol. My mare Jade scared the life out of me one winter when she got her leg caught in the fence. She is the lead mare and several of the other horses were standing around her, thats what made me go over and take a closer look. She must have been pawing at the surrounding snow and her foot got caught in the fence deep in the snow. I had a heck of a time releasing it but I finally was able and she was ok, just some scary blood on the snow and superficial scratches. She was smart enough not to struggle or it could have been much worse.

Blush,

Grey horse with amazing ability to stick all legs ABSOLUTELY STRAIGHT OUT apparently ALSO has the amazing ability to try and hide "blanket damage" by lying atop it while mom is looking! Absolutely adorable...I love it....

OMGawd!!! This thread is tooooo funny!
I have gotten so used to the horses laying flat out and not moving when I walk out, they open an eye, look and go back to sleep!
I let them out in our yard, people have pulled in and there have been 5-7 horses laid out flatter than pancakes on my lawn sunning LOL
