    We are working on using a cowbell. Got that idea from a friend who uses an old school bell to call her horses up from the pasture. Our place isn't as big as theirs, so a cowbell is good enough.

    Then again, our biggest problem is getting them NOT to come! When our horses see us outside, they come running anyway...

    This is great :)
    Thanks you guys, I may just have to invest in a whistle!

    Ha, I can't whistle either....its quite frustrating! We use a sheepdog whistle, which is very loud and piercing, easy to hear from a long distance.

    For 70 acres, I would buy a whistle.

    My horses share a smaller paddock, the entire thing is visible from the gate, but our small herd of cattle run about 30 acres of hillside, gully, and woods. It's amazing how 20 1500 lb. Cows can vanish in dense forest. Our auditory call of choice for them is either a loud "HEH! HEH!" (think a contracted form of "HERE!") through cupped hands, or to just fire up the 4-wheeler that their grain "treats" and mineral blocks roll in on.

    Butterscotch disks...Lol...she hears the wrappers and she's ALL over me...bwahahaha

    That said, I usually whistle and my horses have come runnin, but it takes some time to get that 'proper' response, especially when you are dealing with a larger area.

    One little warning about those whistles that I posted, it does take some time to learn how to use them. It took me about a week of playing to learn how to make it do what I wanted.
