THIS LIMOUSINE RED IS A GOOD BETTER BEST OF MULES.
Years of working under Mike Dillard's saddle (professional guide/mule trainer) while hunting elk, deer, bear, mountain lion, raccoon, hogs, following hog dogs or baying hounds is the foundation of this tried and true riding mule's greatness proven across rough country or just while relaxing going up & down the trail.
This "Red"mule has actually been there... done it... seen it... smelled it... heard it... stepped in it... stepped over it... waked around it... and been through it.
Reds hunting the rough country is seasoned with his experience working on the ranch.
Dr. Jim values how Red stands quietly in place so he can take pictures or use binoculars to check out what is happening across the wild canyon.
THE WINDOW TO THIS MULE'S SOUL IS SEEN IN HIS EYE!
NOTE: THIS LIMOSUINE RED MULE IS THE BEST MULE WE HAVE EVER KNOWN IN OVER 65 YEARS with mules. RANCHO SANTIAGO FOUND, BOUGHT & KEPT LIMOSOUINE RED FOR OURSELVES TO ENJOY, RIDE, HUNT AND FOR WORK ON THE RANCHO.
"Coon Jumping" talent is a silly past time until you are riding up a very narrow trail where you can't turn around and there is a big log obstacle across the trail or you are following the hounds at night and come to a fence where the dogs went under and the nearest gate is 2 miles away. What do you do? Jump it... laugh... thank your red mule... and ride on!
You may need to experience 60 years of raising, using, buying, selling, tradeing mules while driving your truck into a pile of junk trying to find a Limousine Red mule and never find him. Here is your "Red" mule right now so .... wait... move sand around with the toe of your boot... think, dream on and pass again... or just quit wasting life and come get your mule of a life time and put your saddle on your Limosuine Red and hit the trail.

Sam is a ver good mule... Dr. Jim
THIS PICTURE TELLS THE STORY ABOUT RANCHO SANTIAGO'S SAM'S BASIC PEOPLE LOVING PERSONALITY.
In the picture above this good lady came to Rancho Santiago to pick up her new Catahoula puppy. Sam came up to this nice stranger out of our 160 acre pasture to meet up and for some get acquainted fun.
New tack confusion and and inexperienced rider coupled with a strange mule can be a stressful or dangerous situation for most persons and most mules.
Sam does not worry about, get antsy or sweat about the small stuff.
Sam does not require an very experienced rider.
Carefully read this Sam mule guy's personality in his eye. Sam's eye is the window of his mule soul.
However.... a very experinced rider appreciates the no nonsense, time saving dependable behavior of Sam. Sam has no problems or bad habits and does all of the required basics or tacking up, loading in trailers, or hoof work right.
NO EAR PROBLEMS! THIS IS A BIG DEAL! If you have had your nose smashed by some snide mule slamming her head into your face because you dared to touch her ear you would know just what a big deat is this ear safety issue.
Also notice Sam's reins on the ground.
Sam is NO run away goofy mule.
"COON JUMPING" TALENT IS NOT JUST FOR FUN... THIS IS A VALUABLE TALENT.
Following hog dogs or baying hunting hounds that are hot on the trail in persuit & the dogs just slip under the fence and take off running after the quarry.... you can follow.
If you have experienced coming up on a log or trail obstacle that could not be ridden around or came up to a fence where the nearest gate is miles away in either direction then the "coon jumping" talent of this Sam mule is greatly appreciated.
