Trigger, originally named Golden Cloud (1932 3 July 1965) was a 15.3 hands (63 in; 1.60 m) golden palomino, made famous in American Western films with his owner, cowboy star Roy Rogers. Trigger became the most famous horse in film entertainment, even having his own Dell comic book recounting his exploits. There was also a famous old saying: "What a face, what a figure, two more legs and she'll look like Trigger." "Bucky the Bronco," Trigger's twin, stands above the south scoreboard of the Denver Broncos stadium. He was created from this same mold, with the approval of Roy Rogers. The 24 foot mold was afterwards destroyed. This photo was taken at Sunset Hills in Apple Valley with the Sycamore Rocks as a backdrop. Roy Rogers and Dale Evans were well known for their work with children and charitable contributions.
