    Foal
    My boy comes as soon as he hears the front door open (he is free range on our lawn for most of the year) and he will walk right up onto the porch.
    At first I would get him to come by shaking his feed bucket and using him name, and then I dropped the bucket and now he just comes when I call.

    Had to stop that myself & build a 'house yard' because I had a pony who'd be IN the front door when she heard you get out of bed! Not good for the floorboards.... or my relationship with non-horsey husband!

    Agreed.

    Got one of those....can't leave the door open. Comes into the house and steals whatever food he can find - oreos, bread, you name it...

    Another one (crossed the rainbow bridge sometime ago) who knew how to clang on the door with his foot at 7am so someone would come down and feed him. He had us trained, too. There was NO DOUBT we were getting out of bed at that point....it rattled the whole house!

    But that was when we built the house and a big perimeter fence was all we had around the place...we have paddocks and pastures where they stay locked up nowadays.

    Every animal on the place thinks it's name is C'mon as they all come when I call that.
