Photo Challenge: 23 Horses Doin’ a Snooze

If this gallery doesn’t make you want to curl up someplace warm and comfy and take a nap, you have better willpower than us.

There are few pleasures greater in life than taking a nap, I’ve concluded as an adult who is often behind on sleep. As I have horses and a full-time job and cannot usually curl up somewhere cozy and nap myself, I vicariously enjoy watching my loved ones — that would be my horses — passed out somewhere in the sun, catching their Zs, living the dream. And obviously, so do our readers!
