Holding facilities for wild horses, like the one in Reno NV, contain hundreds of mustangs that have been taken from the open range. Many mares will give birth at the facility. It is natural for foals to lay down and sleep, even in the wild.

It is disturbing, however, that recent information has surfaced about the fact that over 577 horses between 2010 and 2012, have been taken to a local rendering plant. (A rendering company will pick up and dispose of dead horses.) The BLM reported only 241 horses from their facility. The majority of those horses were foals.
