A horse can lay down just like a cow can. Just like with cows, horses will lay down either recumbant on their fronts or layed out on their sides when they are relaxed and they feel secure. When someone sees a horse laying down in the middle of a pasture as they drive by, this should never be a means to suddenly come to the conclusion that that horse is dead. A horse can only get a real deep REM sleep when it is laying down, never when it is standing. Horses will doze or sleep lightly whilst standing, locking their knee joints and resting on three legs as they do so. Because horses are prey animals and their instinct is to flight first before investigating when startled, if they do not feel safe in an area they will not lay down to rest. A cow is no different since she too, is a prey animal just like the horse. Just like the horse, even though cows are more calmer and less "hot-headed" than most horses may be, they too will choose to stand to doze in one spot rather than lay down if they do not feel secure enough.
mustangs sleep standing up and they lay down for about an hour as long as there is some protection if there is no protection they will not sleep.
