I grain every time I call them up so they know with a call comes food...the tasty stuff :) So I have my bucket in hand and go out and yell "Come on boys! Come up" they usually can't get there fast enough...

I don't have ANY problems with my horses coming when called. Most of the time they get something for coming to me. I was in the bathroom the other day singing a song while I cleaned. Well my horse heard me, gave the loudest neigh she could and ran to the barn. I felt bad for singing so loud that she thought I was calling her, even though I was singing Joey I'm So Sorry, which I guess sounds like Annalie...? I stopped cleaning and went out and gave her a carrot, lol.

One you will find that 70 acres is not that much. Unless there are a lot of trees or rolling hills you will be able to see him.

He will in turn be able to see and hear you. All my horses know their names and like my dogs have to taught to come when called. sometimes they get a treat most of the time not. However when they come they get something from a scratch or feed or worked or something they love. Over time they just know when I walk out they are to come.
