Trigger Rides Again

Forty-five years after its death, Roy Rogers’ beloved golden Palomino, Trigger, is returning to television. The remains of the horse were purchased at auction for more than a quarter of a million dollars by RFD-TV, a rural program-oriented cable network.  The net also purchased the remains of cowboy’s dog, Bullet,...
