( just say these words and she will meet you by the gate)
For bailey - whats up pretty boy sounds a bit like a high pitched annoying voice but he loves it...
(generally he looks at me first then I say that line and he will meet me at the gate)
For jessie - jessie boy (you say anything jessie and he picks his head up and nickers and turns to your voice, then we go in and catch him)
For the herd to come running - come and get it (shortly after you will hear the stampede and they will all line up for there food)
The last call. XD. Makes me think of Ma and Pa Kettle. Her call for their mass of children (Ma Kettle, that is), is a harshly hollered "COOOME AN GETIT!"
My call for my horses was a piercing whistle. For the dogs, it was the whistle from the movie 'Iron Will'. For the goats, the two fingers in the mouth whistle, and shake the grain bucket.
Whinny and Garnet were the only ones that really answered. Sugar would just follow.
