Lilly is enjoying an afternoon nap.
You will rarely see both of them lying down at the same time, although it does happen here from time to time. One is usually standing, always on guard, to guarantee their safety.
Horses, albeit their large size, are prey animals and always need to be aware of any imminent danger. Although there are no mountain lions in southeastern Massachusetts, it is the way of the horse, to be alert, aware and ready to take flight at all times.
Lilly is usually the one lying down and Leah the one standing. Leah IS relaxing though, notice her hind leg bent?
