How do your horses sleep? Have you ever noticed? I know that Kola definitely lies down. I've seen her laying down and in such a deep sleep that she's in REM. Hooves twitching, eyes twitching, totally dreaming. Misty on the other hand, in the five years that I've had her, I've only caught laying down to sleep once and that was this spring after they had their vaccinations and were completely wiped out from them. Other than that I've never witnessed Misty laying down to sleep, unless she does late at night out in the pasture. With Kola, it took me awhile to get comfortable with it and realize that she wasn't collicking. When I had Dakota, he often would lay flat to sleep as well. To see Kola laying and dreaming is something else. It makes me wonder, what do horses dream about? Are they weird distorted dreams like most of us have from time to time? Or are they primitive dreams of freedom or of predators chasing them? Or are they dreams of us, feeding and caring for them? What do you think? And have you witnessed your horses sleeping or dreaming?
