What did Sandy Roger's Roy Rogers son die from?
Tennessee Walker Actually in "Cowboy Princess" written by Roy's daughter, Cheryl Rogers-Barnett who was his first child, she was adopted by Roy and his first wife who passed …away after they had a child together. She writes in her book that Trigger was a registered palomino, which means he was registered a color, not a breed. You can do that, I own a registered Pinto, that is only a color same as Palomino is only a color, not a breed. She goes on to quote her father Roy, quote, " He was about three fourths thoroughbred and a little bit what Dad said was a "cold blooded mare" that's an old horseman's word for a mutt: just a mixture of breeds." unquote. Not to confuse anyone, Trigger was not a mare, he was a gelding. Trigger was a rental horse from a stable Republic pictures used named Rudkins. Roy drive out there one day after the palomino was returned to the stable and purchased Trigger for $2500.00 The Palominos registered name was Golden Cloud, Roy renamed him Trigger. Another book with a wealth of information is "The story of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Happy Trails with Carlton Stowers.
His dog was named Bullet.
True. Roger's grandfather's son would be Roger's father. Roger's father would be the grandfather of any of Roger's children.
Congestive heart failure.
'Happy Trails' was the theme to the Roy Rogers radio and then television show. It was written by Dale Evans and sung by her and Roy at the end of every show. When Roy wa…s with the Sons of the Pioneers, their signature tune was 'Tumblin' Tumbleweeds'.
Roy Rogers in TV shows played a modern Western Sheriff who used both Horses and modern vehicles ( such as Jeeps) Both were shown as were, from what I understood Guided missile… sites in the desert, a most modern touch. Roy Rogers was classed as a juvenile western. Violence directed against lead characters- particularily Law Enforcement characters, was a no-no. It wasn"t done. The argument can be stretched in saying there is no real suspense- no matter what the background music, in serial fiction, as the show must go on next week, etc. It is a mere matter of logic. you don"t kill off your lead character.
Roy Rogers' dog was called Bullet
Roy Rogers died on July 6, 1998 at the age of 86.
Trigger was his horse; Dale Evans his wife. He had two sidekicks (at different times) Gabby Hayes and Pat Brady (who drove a jeep named "Nellybelle"). He actually had three di…fferent sidekicks the third was Andy Devine.
\nThe Jeep which was owned by Roy Rogers but was driven on the show by Pat Brady was named Nellybelle.
Trigger was born in 1932 and died, presumably of old age, in 1965. His son, Trigger Junior, replaced him in the movies circa 1957/8, as the old boy was apparently too ol…d and infirm for chasing the crooks at that stage. He seems to have enjoyed about seven or eight years of happy retirement with Roy, Dale and company before eventually going to his well - earned reward in that happy valley in the sky, where pastures are always green and skies are always blue. Here's hoping he's now reunited with those who loved and cared for him in this world - Roy, Dale and their family, his other human friends including Gabby, Smiley, Bob and all the Sons of the Pioneers - and also of course Trigger Jr., Buttermilk and Bullet. Irish Readers should be interested to know that Roy and Trigger came to Dublin for a number of appearances in the Theatre Royal in the early or mid '50's where the beautiful Golden Palimino performed many fabulous tricks (of which he is reputed to have known about 60) as befitted "The Smartest Horse in the West. During that visit, Trigger was stabled in the rear of a Georgian premises in Merrion Sq., now the headquarters of the Irish Auctioneers and Valuers Institute (IAVI). T.M Answer Regarding Trigger Jr., most writers seem to agree that Trigger Jr. was not actually related to the original Trigger. Trigger Jr. was purchased to relieve the stress on the original Trigger of a heavy travel and performance schedule.
