A horse that was moved into his owner’s house to take shelter from the winter storms in Germany won’t stop coming back.

Nasar, a three-year-old Arabian horse, has decided he likes the comforts of a human home and now prefers to spend his days wandering around the house rather than being out in the field with his own kind.

“He is not a fan of the wind and the rain,” owner Stephanie Arndt told Die Welt newspaper, adding: “Nasar is extremely curious”.

The inquisitive animal has now been captured in a series of portraits galloping around the home, drinking juice from a glass and even having bash on a keyboard.

After first moving in when storms hit Flensburg, northern Germany, in December, Nasar has his own room with hay, but enjoys investigating all the rooms in the house.

He has also become accustomed to human treats and started eating sweets.

Now the storms are up, the friendly steed is only allowed to enjoy roaming around the house during the day however, with Ms Arndt left with the difficult job of getting him out to the stables at night.
