Many horse very rarley lie down, Nickel lies down alot.
Becouse horses are pray animals, it is rare to see them lie down.
Horses are usally ready to run for their lives. Horses legs are equiped with locking meconisms that provent them from fallind over when they sleep standing up. I am thankful that Nickel feels safe enough on his farm that he lies down alot. On occasion we have seen both Jake and Nick lie down but most often Nickel lies down and Jake stands gaurd. Nick is so content that both Bob and I have layed along side him in the paddock. I have to tell you it is an awsome feeling to lay along side a 1800lb creature and know your safe. I am thankful.
