Linda, Weybridge

Answer

** Definitive **
Name: Graham, M25
Qualification: My wife owns horses.
Answer: Yes they do. They donít react to their showname, but do to their everyday name. For example, one of our horses is called Bellwether Kestrel, but he answers to the name Pixie. If you shout Pixie, heíll trot across the field.
