Studying Horses’ Lying Down Behavior


Even though horses spend most of their time standing up, every once in a while, they have to lie down and rest. That’s something we humans can certainly sympathize with and understand! However, how long is too long to sit down? What does it mean if a horse sits down too often? What does this say about a horses’ behavior and attitude?

The Horse has a wonderful article that discusses a device that measures horses’ lying down behavior. Although the research on this behavior is more useful for scientists rather than for horse owners, it is still a pretty interesting read!

Do you think you need this device to measure your horses’ behavior, or are you already well-attuned to their welfare? Let us know below!
