Given that this is a riddle, there are many answers possible depending on the way you think about it: * One horse: after the first horse is put in the barn, it isn't empty. Mathematically, we can work out how many horses would fit if we can arrange whatever way we like: * 6730.77 horses: The volume of the barn divided by the volume of a horse gives the number of horse volumes that could fit in the barn volume. * 437.5 horses: If horses cannot be stacked, this is the area of the barn floor divided by the area a horse takes up giving the number of horses that fit if only one level of horses goes in the barn. In reality, we cannot fit parts of a horse or put them in any shape we want like a liquid: * 6555 horses: 437 horses per level and we can fit 15 levels of horses in the barn. * 437 horses: this is the number of horses that fit if we cannot stack horses and we cannot fit parts of horses around them.

Call your local vet. If you can, rub your hands down your horses legs, checking for bumps, scratches, and heat differences between legs.

If your horse is well accustom to you and your ways, and this is abnormal behavior, this could be a serious condition. When in doubt, ask a more senior horse owner for advice. Or give your local horse vet a call, they might have some ideas and not need to come out to the barn. Hope that helps.
