Mine both do too : ]

They both know their names. Every horse I've owned/known has known it's name.
Problem is several of the names end in "e".
The alpha mare's name is very unique. When she is called at night, the whole place knows it's supper time and they ALL come!

Cope doesn't know his name, but he comes to "Bud" cuz that's usually what I call him...lol...weird I know.
There's also a Chester at our barn that thinks his name is "Dude"...lol...it's too funny.

Yes, all of mine know their names. They will prick their ears and look at me when I call them. The only problem I have noticed is that they are like my cats; they know their names but only come when they feel like it. LOL.

I don't think my horse does. Probably because I call him Hersh, Hershey, and Buddy all about equally. And my boyfriend calls him Puppy, a lot.

Yes, when I call her name, she comes to me.

Ricci knows her name, and she knows what it means when I use a certain tone. I don't typically tell her, "no" because a stern, motherly, "Ricci!" will do. =]
Gracie isn't sure about her yet, but she's still a baby.
I also have a male cat named Sassy and he will ONLY respond to "Kitty." Lol.
