He is a mammoth jack. He is a good squirrel hunting ride. When I am not hunting, I use him for Border Patrol. He can sneak up on game and we can both sneak up on Mexicans. The only time I ever had a problem with him was when we were hunting in a swamp. A beaver slapped its tail on the water and old Willie's eyes bugged out, his ears folded back and he headed straight to the barn at a full run. I pulled as hard as I could on the the reins but could not slow him down. I could barely hold on. Kinda scared me. We never hunted near the swamp again. A gunshot doesn't bother him but a beaver turned him into a wild thing.
