hahahaha Cricket has a droopy lip! I LOVE it! Does anyone know what causes droopy lippage? I wish I had a picture, it's so cute!

I've wondered this myself. I just did a Google search with no luck. Maybe it's just a cute quirk.

All my stock's lips droop xD At least the trained ones do. Loki's is especially fun because you can then make him 'talk' and he'll just stand there all: "Ooo I'm getting the luffs ^^'

Wait! I'll fix it....

I knew a pony that had a really droopy lip. I was told it was because he had Lymes. No idea if that's true or not but that's what I was told.

Well I know my horse doesn't have Lymes, so that can't be the cause for my girl. But I would believe is could be a trait of Lymes. I've also heard a droopy lip is a sure sign a horse has been drugged, but again that doesn't apply to my mare because her lip droops all the time!

I have heard that if a horse has a droopy lip it means they're calm and easy going. However, the mare of mine that has the droopy lip is the uptight and nervous one and my other mare is the calm, bombproof one, and she doesn't have a droopy lip! So that puts that theory to bed too!

We have a clyde out at the barn that has the WORST droopy lip. The first time I rode her she was carrying her head so low, her droopy lip almost touched the ground. Boy.... I think it's cute. I'll have to find a picture.

One of my horses pouts when he is unhappy.

The neighbor's little black ugly yappy dog will run at my horse and my horse will put his ears back and his lip will droop. He hates that dog. He will pout the whole time that dog is around.

When the dog goes home, his lip no longer droops. He's a pouter.
