I was out exercising, riding one and ponying another, on my way home. A car came roaring down the road towards me, swerved and stopped in front of me.
It was me of my liveries in a bit of a panic, telling me I had to get back really fast as a young horse was down, groaning and refusing to get up.
I trotted on home to get back to find the horse stood in the hard, several liveries around him. He was looking very miserable and his head was wet.
The liveries had arrived to ride, the horse was flat out and groaning and wheezing. They thought he was ill and when he refused to get up despite them pulling on his halter he just lay there so, they through a bucket of water over his head.
There was nothing wrong with him at all. I had previously worked him hard and being the laid back horse he was, he had just lay down and gone into a deep sleep.
He always wheezed and groaned when he was asleep and was a horse that when asleep would often act more like a dog dreaming than a horse. Hos legs would gallop like crazy!
