Laurie,
What type of tubes are you drawing the blood into?  I presume red-tops 
(silicanized glass).  Assuming that you are not using anti-coagulants, 
perhaps the initial hour at room temp prior to refrigeration is not 
adequate to allow complete clotting to occur.  When you remove the 
tubes from the fridge, the clotting resumes.  I'm not familiar with 
horses, but could this be the problem?
