 Bloopers:

The arrangement:

When the Apache war party starts its charge toward the High Chaparral, the dirt road beside them shows clear tire tread marks from the camera truck

The best man for the job:

Manolito leaves the ranch on a black horse that changes, mid-ride, into his regular brown sorrel, "Macadoo." In later shots of the same ride, the black horse is back, but when Mano dismounts, he's with Macadoo once again.

The price of revenge:

The substitution of a stunt horse is noticeeable here when Blue is thrown during an Apache attack.Befor he falls off, his palomino horse has its another Palomino with a grey mane and tail.The blond one is instantly back,though when Blue gets up.

The Assassins:

Manolito leaves the ranch on a black horse that changes mid-ride,into his regular brown sorrel,Macadoo.In later shots of the same ride, the black horse is back but when Mano dismounts,he,s with Macadoo once again.

Gold is where you find it.

After the Apaches resque Blue,,Buck signs to their leader and says, Vaya con Dios to you too brother",His lips didn't moved .In later shots of the same ride,the black horse is back.But when Mano dismounts he,s with Macadoo once again.

The Kinsman:

When Manolito rides up to the house,Buck is grooming his horse,Rebel.While standing beside the animal's left flank.After a verry brief cut to Mano and back,Buck is suddenly on Rebels right flank, without enough time to have moved there.Dan'wanted poster features high resolution.In the final scene light patterns from  studio reflectors are moving on the sleeve of Blue,s shirt.He,s on horseback in the middle of the dessert and is nowhere near water,shinny metal or anything else that could cause such light reflections.

Ride the savage land:

Mano,s horse is shot and killed by the Apaches.But when we see a shot of the dead animal,its not Mano's horse.Buck was riding((with a distinctive white blaze on its forehead)Apparently Buck's horse was a better playing dead,

The dead soldier is still holding a coin with which Manolito paid him for the horse.But when the camera pulls in close,it becomes apparent that the coin is actualy a blanc disc.

While Buck and Mano are chasing the Apaches,Mano,s mount changes from a horse with a blond mane and tail to one with an all brown mane and tail and back again.

Tiger by the tail:

As Victoria tends to him,the blood stairs on El Tigre's bandages keep changing positions and patterns between shots.

The peacemaker:

In the final battle with the Apaches.Blue and most of the rest of the Chaparral men fire their 6 shooters dozens of times without ever reloading.

When Blue rides in with Moonfire and Kelly,there are footprints visible in the dirt behind them.Several of the prints have distnctive patterned tread from what factual errors:In the final battle with the Apaches,Blue and most of the rest of the Chaparral men fire their 6 shooters dozens of times withhout ever reloading.

A joyful noise:

Ramon's six -gun fires more than a dozen times without ever being reloaded.Henry Darrow's stunt double is very noticeable during the final fight  scene with Ramon.He,s heavier,taller and is wearing a verry bad wig.Manolito is bitten on the right ankle by a rattlesnake. But when Maria is later adjusting his bandage, she doctors his left leg instead.

The Stallion:

While the black stallion prances in the corral, a bridle appears on his head, even though no one's gone near him. 

Blue leaves his regular horse exhausted at the ranch and takes another one in order to pursue the young Apache. But in mid-chase, Blue is suddenly back ois regular horse again

Ten little indians:

  Manolito suffers a peculiar memory lapse in this episode. He's fluent in Apache, yet at first speaks to the children only in Spanish and urges Vaquero to translate. Later, though, he "recovers" well enough to speak to both Geronimo and the childrenin Apache.

 In the opening scenes, the perspiration stains on Blue's shirt disappear between takes. They return a few moments later, only to vanish and reappear several more times in subsequent shots.

Two of the ten orphaned Apache children are found hiding near the house, bringing the total so far to six. But later, after Chodi sends out a signal, two more children come in from the desert, and these are again counted as five and six. But the fifth and sixth of the children were already there - so the new total should have been eight, not six

Follow your heart:
A dark brown moisture stain that forms a stripe down the back of Sam's coat disappears when he enters the church, reappears when he comes out, and vanishes again when he meets Trinidad in the graveyard.

The promised land:

 Mano throws a lasso around part of the burning hay wagon and hauls it away from the building. The camera angle changes as the wagon is pulled out, and from one shot to the next, the flames completely disappear.At the end, we see insert close-ups of several of the pueblo's residents. But they're exactly the same shots we saw near the beginning of the episode: the same people in the exact same positions, shown in the same sequence. The footage is recycled.

During the fiesta, Reno plays his guitar in the canteen. Each time the musical chords change, we should see his left hand shift positions on the neck of the guitar. But though his right hand is vigorously strumming the strings through several chord changes, his left hand never moves.

Ebenezer:

When the gunman shoots at Mano and Ebenezer from the upstairs window, Mano shoots back and hits him. We see the man fall back away from the window into the room. Yet in the next shot, he somehow reverses directions and falls forward instead, breaking through the glass and falling out onto the roof.

Nort to Tucson:

When Buck and Blue are playing their game on the tree stump, Buck's left hand is down at his side in one shot, then instantly tucked up under his chin in the next.

In the opening sequence, when the stagecoach first overturns, only one wheel is left spinning. In the next shot, as the comancheros ride up to the wreckage, all four wheels are spinning.

John and Manolito are driving the wagon and loudly singing "La Gallina" together. But as they pass closer to the camera, we can see that their lips aren't moving.

The Deceivers:

Victoria's musical jewelry box has magical abilities. It can play its waltz tune ad infinitum without ever running down. In fact, we never see anyone wind it up: it simply plays the waltz endlessly every time the lid is opened.

When Chio is trying to force information from Tina, part of her torn dress covers her left shoulder in the master shot, but in every close-up, her shoulders are bare.

The leather strap around Manolito's neck is sticking prominently up out of his shirt collar in all the over-the-shoulder shots, but it disappears every time the angle reverses to a frontal view.

The Buffalo soldiers:

While he stands outside the saloon holding his beer, Manolito's glass refills itself between shots

For what we are about to receive:
When Perlita opens her door to Manolito, there's a wooden bench just outside that wasn't there in the previous exterior shot of Mano approaching the door. When he leaves, it's gone again.

Our lady of Guadalupe:
When Father Sanchez contemplates tossing his burden over the cliff, the bundle he holds is neatly wrapped. When the shot cuts, however, the blanket wrapped around the statue is abruptly loose and disarrayed.

 Just before the bad guys open fire, Mano is riding a full length ahead of Buck. In the very next shot, they're side by side.Vlak voor de slechterikken begonnen met schieten, reed Mano een heel eind vooruit.Maar in de volgende scène reed hij naast hem.

Sea of enemies:

Blue is struck by a rifle stock and has a bleeding wound on his left temple. A few shots later, though, the wound disappears completely. Several scenes later, it's back again.Graham repeatedly sings a song he says his grandmother taught him: "Rufus Rastus Johnson Brown, What you gonna do when the rent come round?" This was a Vaudeville stage composition written by Andrew B. Sterling and Harry Von Tilzer - in 1905. High Chaparral is set in the 1870s.

Shadow in the wind:

 When he's escorting Victoria back to the ranch, Manolito's shirt collar is completely outside his jacket in all the full shots, but is tucked inside the jacket in close-ups.

Inside the hotel, Manolito is wearing a white shirt. But when he walks outside, he has on his usual yellow-gold one. It turns white again a few shots later.

The last hundred miles:
When John speaks to Cochise, two Apache warriors standing behind him change both their poses and their distance from John every time the camera angle reverses.

The Glorie soldiers:

 When the rurales chase Manolito, he's riding Macadoo, his sorrel horse with the blond mane and tail. But the use of a stunt horse becomes obvious when Mano hides by leaping off into an arroyo and urging his mount to lie down beside him. Suddenly "Macadoo's" coat is a much darker brown and his mane and tail have also turned brown. He becomes a blond sorrel again, though, in the next scene.

Feather of an eagle:

At the end, Sarah leaps onto a horse, jumps the fence and rejoins the waiting Apaches. On the way, in between shots, her long green dress, which has been bunched up beneath her during the fence leap, neatly rearranges itself  and drapes quite prettily over the horse on all sides, even though she hasn't had time to touch it.

When Buck gallops away from Mano and the newly-rescued Sarah, two jet contrails are visible in the sky at the upper left of the screen.

Once a day in spring:

Blue's knife slips and badly cuts his hand. But the next day, there's no sign of the wound or any bandage on his hand.

  During Victoria's conversation with Vaquero in the tent, the red blanket wrapped around her changes positions (up near her ears, then falling off her shoulders, etc.) several times between takes.

Stinky Flanagan:
Apparently, Buck getting thrown off his horse, whose name was Rebel, wasn't in the script. When it happens, a startled Cameron Mitchell shouts at the horse using its real name, Prince. Despite the blooper, the shot wasn't cut. In fact, it happens at least two more times in other episodes of the series.

At the end, the U.S. Cavalry "brand" Blue finds on the mule isn't a brand at all: it's obviously been applied with white paint to make it more visible to the camera. It's also unlikely that it would be so large, or that it would be located on the animal's neck instead of on its rump.

The lion sleeps:

 When Manolito wakes her up, Anita instantly changes positions on the bed between takes. She's lying on her side, but in the very next shot, she is suddenly on her back looking up at him.

A time to laugh,Time to cry:

Manolito rushes into Don Sebastian's study, passing two large, open doors. When the shot cuts, he passes the same doors again.

While he's dinging with Miguel and the banditos,Don Sebastians position on the ground changes repeatedly as the camera angles shift.in the most shots.He,s reclining and leaning on the elbow.But in several others he,s sitting upright.

Trail to nevermore:

When Manolito and Victoria jump from the wagon,her hat flies off and falls on the ground.The bandits ride on by,chasing the wagon,after which Mano and Victoria get up and start walking.

She later laments losing her hat when they leaped,which makes no sense.Since the bandits and therefore the urgency had passed,there was no reason not to retrieve her hat before they left ther area.

The legacy:

While Burnett sits in the hotel room in his chair talking to Trice his daughter,A equipment shadow moves across the top of his head.

Only the bad come to Sonora:

Only the Bad Come to Sonora": The number of outlaws in the gang mysteriously increases during one chase scene. For most of the episode, there are only three of them. When they gallop off after Manolito, there are suddenly five. Next scene, there are three again.

Spokes:

 When Buck orders the would-be killers out of the hotel room, his lips don't move in sync with the words he speaks.

A matter of survival:

The doll standing in for Baby Joey is visible in one shot of Victoria carrying the child on horseback. The blanket slips, leaving the doll's stiff neck, plastic head and shock of sticking-straight-up nylon hair all in plain view.

The lion of Sonora:

In the 1870s , poker chipswere made of wood and either branded or painted with denominational values. But the brightly colored chips on General Casados' table in this 

During Don Sebastian's funeral, the single church bell is tolling. But the ringing sound effect continues after the bell itself has stopped moving.
