    No thanks on the horse, but I wouldn't mind having his '64 Bonneville.

    Sad actually, and I think there is a generation who don't know anything about Trigger, Roy or Dale Evans.

    I've always heard they were super-fine people. Didn't they adopt about 12 children or so, during their marriage?

    A guy like RR was just about the ultimate role model.

    It seems like yesterday that Clint Black and RR did a music video together, though I can't remember the name of the song

    Oddly, that horse is worth a whole lot more money dead than mine are alive. If I'm going to buy a horse, I better be able to ride it.

    Spent a lot of time with Roy, Trigger, and Dale while I was growing up! Roy was one of the best, loved children, stayed married to the same woman his entire life. He never had a scandal which surrounded him. He was a Master Mason, which is a good thing! I wish the kids today had such a role model.

    All you have to do is mount wheels on his hooves and you're good to go.

    Hmm...seems like good ol' trigger would have ended up in a museum. I guess a museum could buy him.

    Would that make Trigger a "Marvel the Mustang"?

    I discovered the best thing about owning horses is selling 'em.

    Clint and Roy's song/video was called 'Hold on Pardner'.

    But Roy was so violent, brandishing weapons at all the bad guys. Much too poor of an example for kids theses days--especially with SpongeBob to look up to!
