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.
