In 1938 Roy decided to buy a Palomino stallion named Golden Cloud for $2,500.00. Roy wanted to ride him in his flims, but he thought that Golden Cloud didn't sound very western, so Roy renamed him Trigger & the legendary screen team was born.
When his beloved horse Trigger died, Roy couldn't bear to bury him so he had him stuffed. Roy didn't tell his children about any of this until about a year after Trigger passed away.
Both he and his wife Dale Evans were the grand marshals of the "Tournament of Roses Parade" in 1977.
When he was a little boy, he taught himself how to yodel by listening to an old cylinder recording of a Swiss yodeler over & over again.
He met Dale Evans on the set of their first movie "The Cowboy and the Senorita"
Roy Rogers: Cowboys weren't allowed to kiss girls in pictures... so I had to kiss Trigger instead.
