DURING A WORLD WAR II TEXAS TOUR, The King of the Cowboys ROY ROGERS and TRIGGER strike the cowboy pose in this unpublished photo taken in front of the ALAMO as their fans happily observe. Rogers, Trigger, and The Sons of the Pioneers stopped by the famous landmark between entertaining at military bases and selling war bonds.
Roy Rogers mounted on Trigger Jr., using one of his famous plastic parade saddles. Trig Jr was a Tennessee Walking horse who had a nice repertoire of tricks, including dancing. He appeared in only a few movies (standing in for Trigger mostly), probably the best known is "Son of Paleface" with Bob Hope.
