In one of Errol's movies!

12 Jul

Hi everybody – again I have been MIA for a while and noticed nobody has place a quiz question!?

Here is one for fun:
In one of Errol's movies there was a horse who had a nice name:
1. What was the name of the horse?
2. What was the race of the horse?
3. What was the horse able to do?
4. Who rode the horse – did Errol or another actor ride the horse?
5. What year did this horse have its movie debut?
6. Later this horse received another name – what was this name?
7. Who renamed the horse and why?

Happy quizzing – Saturday is answering time!
First entry with all the correct answers is the winner!

— Tina

    Hi Tina,
    great to have you back and with a nice question! Here's what I came up with:
    1. Golden Cloud
    2. golden palomino
    3. had 150 trick cues and could walk 50 feet on his hind legs
    4. Olivia de Havilland rode it in “Robin Hood”
    5. in 1938
    6. Trigger
    7. Roy Rogers, because of his quickness

    You are quick today Inga!
    2. Actually, Golden Cloud's color is palomino. His Sire was a thoroughbred and his mother unregistered. Thought to be a cold blood. So you would not classify him as palomino with respect to breed. (Years ago “palomino” was reserved for a color. Today in the US the term can be used to designate a color breed.)
    So the question should be–what was the “breed” of horse.
    Just a little note from an equestrian.

    Yes I ride every chance I get which is about once or twice a week these days if I am lucky.
    You will laugh at this but as a little girl I wouild watch Dodge City with my Dad and spent a lot of the time looking at the horses!
    I have a chestnut (redish color) Morgan horse. He used to stand stud in Ocola Florida up to the age of 5 years old. I've had him 11 years. He's gelded now and I don't show him any more. Although bred as a champion show horse these days we mostly hunt (foxhunt and we rarely see the fox). Or I place my youngest son on my larger saddle in front of me and we go off for long trail rides. Nothing like riding in the snow with some jingle bells on with a little one.

    Hi Patti;
    That is wonderful information. I always thought that the Palomino was an actual breed of special horses having this light bronze body with the blond mane and tail. Errol rode a Palomino in “Montana”, he liked these horses and apparently owned one at one time.
    That just proves the point that every minute of our lives we can learn something new!
    You are the rider – I am the sailor we make a good “Errol” pair.

    Tina, I will place one tomorrow, but it will be a “community task”, you will see what I mean.
    I would invite other members to post a real quiz question, those who have not so far, like David himself, or Rachel, or Brenda, or other authors…

    Wow Tina. I didn't know you are a sailor. That is great. When I was growing up my parents always had a relatively large boat. Not a sail boat though. I've always wanted to go sailing. It looks so peaceful and calm.
    My favorite of Erro'ls horses was Onyx. His black stallion who he made a few movies with.
    Yep. A good pair. Have a nice evening.

    From Wiki:
    “After Trigger died in 1965, his hide was stretched over a plaster likeness and put on display at the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum in Victorville, California which was relocated to Branson, Missouri, and closed in late 2009. After the closing of the museum, its contents were placed at public auction on July 14-15, 2010, at Christie's auction house in New York City. Trigger sold for $266,500 to television channel RFD-TV, which plans to start a Western museum.”

    That's a lot of oats for horse hide! Any mention of Buttercup, Dale Evans's horse? Trigger was 26+ years when he passed. Amazing history for a horse.

    I believe Buttercup is still living at 105.

    Shoot, it wasn't buttercup it was buttermilk–I think–too late at night.

    Buttermilk. A light buckskin color Quarterhorse. His hide was also mounted and later sold at the same auction for $25,000.

    When it died shouldn't it have been named Curdledmilk?
