Quarter Horse Running In A Dream In The Middle Of Afternoon Nap

There is a very popular myth that horses sleep standing up, however, this is not entirely accurate. Several studies have shown that horses sleep differently from other animals.

While horses do sleep on their feet, they do not go into REM sleep or intensive sleep. In fact, it is just a common misconception that horses sleep standing up because they lie down when they need to fully rest. A horse’s ability to sleep upright is due to predators; if a predator is nearby, the horse cannot stand up to spend time, so it can sleep on its feet and run away much more quickly, ultimately saving its life. Our video below shows a beautiful horse sleeping after dinner in a funny way.

It’s not the first time we have seen funny videos of horses sleeping and making funny gestures. It is well known that all horses like to sleep on sunny days, but every horse has its own sleeping habits. Watch the video below to learn more.
