    They kept Little Trigger a secret from the fans at the time though, so everyone thought that they were seeing Trigger “the old man”. Trigger jr. was a Tennessee Walker that Roy bought because he liked him. He appears in the film “Trigger jr”. Again, because Trigger “the old man” was getting old. However, the real Trigger is in that film as well. The real Trigger was a very large horse. the other two were substantially smaller. The real Trigger is in the tv shows though, not the others!

    One time when Roy took Trigger “the old man” to a parade, a fan cut off half of Trigger’s tail as a souvenir. For a while after that, Trigger had to where a “tail piece”! So, he got Little Trigger (who is slightly smaller and has different leg markings) to take for personal appearances. By the time of “Son of Paleface”, the real Trigger was getting older, so they decided to use Little Trigger so that he could do all the stunts. Also, it was Little Trigger that could do the sleeping skit. . . .

    @soullover123456 Yes, there wer three Triggers. He had his real Trigger (he called him “Trigger, the old man”), Little Trigger, and Trigger, jr. The one in “Son of Paleface” is actually Little Trigger. The only film where you ever see Little Trigger. Trigger the old man is in every other Roy film. . .

    I know there was three “Triggers”. Trigger is the original. Then there’s Little Trigger he rode. Who was the other?

    I was just 7 yrs old when this was released. I wanted a Roy Rogers playset, with horses, cowboys, etc. And, after many years, thanks to Ebay, I now have my Roy Rogers and Trigger figurine..At 65, I am one happy young cowboy!
