No its not normal, when I see a horse lying down excessivly then I think possibly two things, one is sand in the belly, or ulcers. Both will cause the horse to not feel well but not necessarily needing a vet, of course both could get really serious. I would need to know alot more about the horses, and look for other symptoms. But I do manage 50 horses and the ones that were laying down but not colicking mostly were ulcer cases.
