Yes! My whole herd knows their names. It kinda freaks people out when I call one and just that horse comes. But they know when I yell "HORSES" that the entire herd needs to come My gf so teases me about that.

Norman trots right over when I call him. :)

Victor takes a message and gets back to me at his convenience. He knows his name, he just pretends he doesn't.

Vida and Fras know their names and will respond when you say it. I'm not sure Saro and Shiloh do though. Shiloh gets called Baby Fras a lot so she may end up coming when her mom is called.
The dogs all know their names no doubt about it.

My friend Jessica has a horse names Chester, and whenever she goes up to the fence shes calls his name, and he will look up, neigh and walk over. Its very cute.

I don't think Miss Take knows her name because she doesn't come what I call her. Boo. :P Most of the other horses at the barn know their names though and respond to it. I love it, makes life easier. ;)

Every horse I've owned knows their name. They will come individually if turned out together too. Sometimes, when they're on the back of the farm, I can call for Velvet, they all pick up their heads, and she will be the only one to come. Same thing for Lady, Rosie, Wheezy, Trixie, Sparky, Pepe & Dona. The 'e' doesn't seem to hang them up.
