    That's what I've always thought as well. If one of them is doing something in the paddock they shouldn't be doing I can bark from the house and only that horse will raise it's head.

    Sounds like the car or truck coming up the street will get everyone's attention.

    We call the pony Max, although the kids at the first foster barn were calling him Noel, due to the time of year he was found. We thought Max was a good name as it's a short and "sharp" name which we thought might be easier for him to get used to.

    This morning he was trying to get at the apple tree which is blocked off with deer fencing. He moved pretty quick when he heard his name.....so maybe it's starting to sink in.

    Just yell out MUTTEN HEAD and see if anyone lifts his head?? Does that mean they know their name?
    I call them BOYS and everyone comes.
    To me it is more about your relationship and not the name.
    You should hear what my wife calls me sometimes
    I still respond.

    Diesel will come to his name but he also comes to "Booger" and "Weasel" :roll:
    He knows his name, but he also understands my voice/body language so if I'm calling him and he's been up to no good, he'll look at me but won't come. Dork.
