Cucumber & Linda in Arizona























I have been reading and hearing a lot of horror stories about people landing in the hospital because of a bad mule. I am so thankful  I picked Rancho Santiago for my first and subsequent mule purchases. 

I have been riding with other mule owners and short ear owners and almost everyone comments on how nice of a mule I have. I am very happy how he is settling in to his "grown up" self. I can open gates off his back that no one else can, partly because he will open or shut swinging gates himself upon request using his nose and chin. He crosses any water, never balks at going anywhere and can navigate any tupe of terrain no matter how steep or rough. I can high line or tie him to the trailer on a long line and he never gets tangled. On the last camp out, we camped with others in a cow pasture. At nite I left the trailer door open for ventilation. CuCumber either stood right outside the door or layed in front of it. Never worried about anything getting me. Was a great trip right up to the moment where CuCumber backed up all the way to the end of his rope, positioned his butt over my girlfriends chair and deposited a nice warm pile of steaming road apples. Luckily she wasn't in it. Funny now, not so much then.
He always entertains people with his antics, his kissing without warning in hopes of cookies, his grunting talk and not to forget his coon jumping and laying down on command to mount. I am continually asked how i taught him all that. Short answer...not sure who taught who.
Thank you so much. I think I can safely say we are partners for life.
Warmest regards
Linda & Cucumber
