    I stand at the gate and scream T I M M Y and wait for him and his girlfriend to come running. Normally she takes off barreling for me and then when he realizes she's leaving him, he gallops on up.

    With my bunch, it's the same call I learned to use back in the day when we ran cattle. Horses and cattle both would come running -


    Upon occasion, if they are not moving fast enough - it's a loud "HEY STOOPID!!!"

    I get strange looks from the neighbors. I have yet to figure out why...

    Ha, some of these are great.
    For Vacation, its "Vacation" (with a horrible french accent) or "hay Vay Cay".
    For Harry "Hair ball" or "harry"
    For Burt "Burtron" or "burt-burt" or "burtie"
    Most of the others are just known as "the big fat ones". Usually all you have to do is walk out to the barn and they all walk up to the gate.

    My school horse isn't huge (like 17hh) or anything, but I'm pretty sure he's at least 16hh and he's strongly built, so I always call him big Boy or X (short for X factor).

    I either use my large horse head bell, mounted to the porch and ring it three times, or just clap three times. Always works, and in case of an emergency, such as somehow getting out of the pasture, I just clap three times and Walka (as well as my beloved T now deceased) would come right to me.

    Saves a lot of walking.........

    ^^^ lol! We have a cook house bell in the yard and they come to that. Or if they see me they come up. If they are way out back I use the bell or yell "come boys". Most likely they are waiting at the fence anyhow.

    If they can see me, I use a high - low whistle. If they are too far, I use the horn of a car or truck. Had a pony mare that liked to drink whatever we were drinking. If they were close enough, I'd just hold up my go cup (usually iced tea) and she'd come running with the others following.

    I worked on a ranch that had broken horns in every truck. Every one. The owner was in Denver and hit a few pawn shops buying up small brass instruments. Coronets, trumpets, bugles. Every truck got one, and some of us even learned to blow a tune or two on them to call in cattle and horses.
