Cowboy star Roy Rogers wasn’t always loyal to Trigger, his beloved horse companion. Sometimes he rode iron horses, like this cool Indian 4 he owned. Rob Johnson, Roy’s grandson submitted this wonderful old family photo to the official Indian Museum of the beloved cowboy star going for a ride with his daughter, Linda Lou Rogers.
Not to slight Trigger here. Trigger was one of the smartest animal movie stars of all time, and well knew how to act for the screen. Trigger was a star in a huge number of films and TV shows with Roy Rogers, and passed away in 1965 at the estimated age of 33. Trigger’s real name was Thunder Cloud.
Roy Rogers lived to be 86. In his late years, he had a religious program over at TBN with his wife, Dale Evans.
