lazy lazy horses.

Does anyone have horses that lay down and sleep a looottt?
My geldings do. Around 2 Am to 3:30 they're down and out. And don't care if they're in the way. I get to step over them.

I've never seen any other horses be be down flat all together for so long

At 2-3:30 am, it is night time. I don't blame them for wanting to lay down.

Well I meant, when they lay down theyre down for a lonnnggg time usually.
Even during the day. They sleep a lot, more than I thought horses are supposed to!

And deep too,sometimes my gelding neighs in his sleep. Dreaming? XD

We had a mare that laid down to sleep all the time. I would actually panic sometimes thinking she was dead. Kids use to go out and sit on her when she was down.

My mare likes to lay down & have a nap around 11 in the morning. I never see my gelding laying down.

My two old geldings would be flaked out on sunny days. We knew when the weather was good when we see them snoozing in the pasture.

My QH sleeps a lot. There are days where he is down all day. I usually bring everyone in and then feed. There have been mornings that by the time I get around to feeding everyone he's already flat out. I'll drop his feed in his tub, he'll roll up, eat and then go back to sleeping flat out. He'll usually get up mid day to pee, get something to drink and then proceed to lay back down on his other side for the rest of the day. My favorite is when he uses his hay for a pillow.
