‘In the summer she gets quite tired so she crashes out,’ said Louise. ‘Normally horses have their head up or legs crossed but she’s completely flat.
‘It’s a really unusual stance for a horse because they’re flight animals, but Marge is quite happy like that.’
Louise, a zoo keeper, said that she gets around five or six phone calls a week from locals passing her field.
‘People get quite concerned,’ she said. ‘They walk down the road and see her flat out. They call to say “I think your horse isn’t well”.

‘99% of the time she will be fine but I always go down to check on her.
‘She’s always done the napping on and off but in this last month it’s been extremely sunny so she’s just realised it’s much comfier for her to lay flat out.
‘I think she feels happy and relaxed. She literally snores when I’m standing over her.’
Louise added that Marge only naps during the day if she is accompanied by her horse husband Matrix, 24, who watches over her as she dozes.
Alongside her snoozing habit, Louise said that Marge likes getting out and about. She added: ‘She’s quite an active horse, she’s ridden regularly.
‘She’s a special girl. Her legs don’t quite go in place but she’s a lovely mare. She can be a little simple but we love her.’
Louise said that Marge usually naps in the middle of the day but in the extremely sunny weather ‘she’s just realised it’s much comfier for her to lay flat out’
