Arrow Horse 'purring'?!

OK, so me and my mum were in the field with my 2month old foal today, he was lying down and my mum whent up and stroked him, she then gently pushed on his neck and said 'Lay down scoobie' and he roled over onto his side, I came over and I started massageing him and stroking him all over, he started to go to sleep, and he then started purring, just like a cat, but he has never seen a cat before, so he hasn't heard them doing it, I looked on google for this and there were alot of things about purring when being riden, but not whilst on the ground, im guessing its his happy sound or something?
