CAN YOU NAME HORSES OF MOVIE COWBOYS?

Just asking…

Can you provide the names of the famous cowboys of the past?

After our recent post of the actors portraying cowboys in films and on TV, the issue of their horses came up.

Most everyone knows Trigger, Roy Rogers’ horse. But can you name the horses of Hopalong Cassidy, Gene Autry, Dale Evans, The Lone Ranger, and Tonto?

While we’re at it: John Wayne also had a fave horse in his movies. What was its name?Hopefully responders can gallop and giddyup to fill the horse name blanks…

WHAT’S YOUR TAKE ON TOY GUNS?

Just asking…

What’s your take on toy guns for kids?

Back in the day, little boys received toy guns in holsters are part of growing-up fun. Girls, too, I suppose.

We’ve all had water guns — and in more recent years, power rifles — to shoot each other, in or out of water. All in the spirit of fun.

Switch to reality now; with all the unfortunate and unnecessary shootings by police and citizens in recent weeks, months, and years, what’s your feelings about guns as kiddie toys portending real guns in life as adults?

Do you condemn or condone?

Just wondering…
