My Sleeping Beauties...

You have to sneak up on these guys to catch them asleep.
Now, that's one relaxed Arrow!
Asleep on their feet,
No one was worried...
who looks good sleeping anyway?

I've always been fascinated that they can sleep standing up! It's amazing. Wait...do you have SNOW? Not yet..right?

I know...I've pondered this since I was a little Farm Chicklett. How the heck do animals sleep standin' up!!! I'd fall flat on me face!

Heeeheehehe!

Bet ya had to make like an FBI agent and be really sneaky to snap these beauties!

God bless ya and have a fantastic day sweetie!!! :O)

Now to me animals laying down means bad weather is a coming. Wonder if your readers have ever heard of cow tipping? :)

And I still love that palomino!!

I love it! I am still waiting to catch my horse laying down. Very nice pics!

They are beauties. Awake or asleep.

You're right about having to sneak up on the horses to catch them napping. I have very few pictures of my guys in repose. Your shots are great. I love the nose propping up the head! It's also fun when they roll down onto their sides... but then, they do look kinda dead and it's scary!

they're adorable!

Farm Girl said...

You have a very nice group of friends. They look very happy and contented

Nap time in the pasture....pefect photo op! I love sleeping horses!!

Sue said...

I've always wondered how they sleep standing up, too. Maybe it was an adaptive defense mechanism at one time?

=)

Beautiful creatures !

Lori Skoog said...

That's what happy horses look like!

♥ Helen said...

They really are beauties and they feel safe with you around when they are sleeping as well.

Buttons said...

Boy they do look good not even any drooling. B

Pat said...

Sshh! Don't wake them! That first shot is adorable. Hey - do horses snore? I know they SNORT, but do they snore? Inquiring minds want to know.

Nora said...

I think horses lying down sleeping are so endearing. You don't see that very much. They must have really been relaxed. XOX

Michaele said...

Neat collection. Love the sleepy ponies.

Rudee said...

Wish I could sleep on my feet. I think that's a trick that could come in handy.

Love horses that feel safe to lay down. I love catching mine all laid out. It's a beautiful thing.
