One of the most valuable services of any top-notch barn? The sometimes life-saving, Murphy’s Law of all Murphy’s Law acts of performing the night check. You can catch an early case of colic, free a horse cast in their stall, or in this case, simply solve one of the world’s great mysteries: Do horses dream?
Night check news…

The world-class team at Tokaruk Show Stables caught this handsome studmuffin named Nox apparently going through the day’s course in his sleep: Is the tall, dark and handsome Nox an overachiever who holds on to carefully memorizes courses? Is he galloping across a great green meadow and leaping stone fences like a romantic montage from National Velvet? Is he stressing over what tomorrow will bring and counting his strides?
While we may never know the emotion behind the action, I’m telling you: That’s a horse, having a dream, jumping things that aren’t there. And it’s the best.
Keep your pony as happy and dreamlike as Nox by setting him up with a pair of Draper Equine Therapy Standing Wraps and No Bow Wraps which use Celliant Fiber technology to improve circulation, reduce inflammation and swelling, provide support, and contribute to career longevity. Draper is a proud sponsor of Tokaruk Show Stables because good products and good horsemanship go hand in hand. Click below to learn more.
