    Yes Lily. Mines the same way. My older one will call out and run the fence line when I drive into my boarding barn and then walk the fence with me doing a low nicker, which my kids say sounds like a train or a pig, the whole way to the barn continuously. My younger one screams a few times when I drive in. They don't do that with anyone else, however I am their only "feed" person and they know they are going out to the field when I get there. However, if I go check them at night I still get nickers and screams when they see me and they know I'm not feeding or putting them out. It's nice to feel a bit appreciated by them, as most of the time as a single mom with three teenage boys I don't feel appreciated at all.
