I have about seven horses and they are all easy to catch.. They can be in the back field and I will whistle and they come running. I take each one out and feed them, brush them down and give them some TLC. Then I put them in the field. When I get a new horse he picks up on what the others are doing and it isn't long that he is trained to come to my whistle. They don't even mine if they are coming to be ridden because they get so much TLC. Any time I go to the gate that I take them out of they come running and stand there waiting their turn. Yes, I guess there is a close bond between us which sure makes my life easier. The time that I would have spent trying to catch them I get to spend time with them developing that bond. This horse he was so excited that he continued to run almost into the gate almost knocking my phone out of my hand..
