Catching Some Rays

During my fall trip to the Grand Tetons there was a large open field with bison and horses just out grazing in the morning sun about mid-morning.  I noticed these two horses just standing in the middle of the pasture with their eyes closed facing into the sun.  I’m sure the warmth of the morning sun felt good . It just looked as if they were “catching some rays” and taking a mid-morning nap.
