Topic

Sleep is something every animal on the planet does, including insects, birds, fish, aquatic mammals, you, me and our horses. We, humans, spend a third of our lives sleeping, and in that time, we repair and strengthen our health systems. So do our horses, but little is known.

There seems to be an increase in “narcolepsy” in horses which isn’t a proper use in horses for this human disease. It is known as the “Sleeping Disorder Of Horses.” But this podcast doesn’t spend a lot of time on this one problem that seems to be escalating over the years. Rather I talk about the things that happen when we sleep. From there, I look at what might be happening to our horses when they sleep.
