    For Drifter I holler his name, and once I see his white nose I know he's looking up. If I'm relatively close all I have to do is lean to the side (how he was taught to come into the middle during free lunging, etc) or all I have to do is yell "Drifter, comere!" Pronounced kuh-mere. He won't respond to come here properly articulated. He came that way... guess his upbringing was fairly country :)
    All of my friends laugh because I have a small southern drawl, seeing as how I was born down here, but I have to totally over exaggerate it in order to get him to come to me. Its so weird. He's so weird.

    Usually just a whistle, but sometimes my 2 year old will diddle doddle so I yell "hurry up numb nuts!"

    Depends on which herd I'm yelling in.

    If it's the geldings, I yell "Come boys!"
    For the mares, I yell "Come girls!"

    Sometimes there are curse words thrown in if they just throw up their heads and stare at me.

    I look at my guy with my heart (chakra) open, sending him energy to his heart, at the same time calling him. I say his name, maybe with a .....hellooooooooo.

    That connected feeling is very special.

    To get everyone in I whistle and just say "ya'll come on". We rarely bring them all in at once since we normally only fool with two of them on a conisistent basis. Individually, it's as follows:


    Dora..."D.D...come on D-girl!"

    Freckles...there is no calling. He's at the gate, waiting. If he sees people he's heading that way :)

    Most of the time I don't have to call "my" equine friends, they come running to greet me. But when I do call them I whistle and call them by name.

    A silent, normally tuned "Snickeeeer!". If I have to summon the whole herd, I call out a loud "Come, come, come!", the "Co-" is then higher pitched than "-me".
