Buttermilk & Dale Evans

Buttermilk (1941-1972) was a light buckskin Quarter Horse with dark points. He appeared in numerous American Western films with his owner/rider, cowgirl star Dale Evans.

Buttermilk was ridden by Ms. Evans in a 1950s television series The Roy Rogers Show with her husband Roy Rogers who rode his Golden Palomino, Trigger. Both horses were extremely popular and became a marketing success with cast iron and plastic replicas, lamps, and dozens of other products purchased by adults and children.

After Buttermilk died in 1972, his hide was stretched over a plaster likeness and put on display at the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum in Victorville, California (the museum has since been relocated to Branson, Missouri).
