I am a great fan of Roy Rogers. I have visited the Website of the Roy Rogers Museum many times.

As I was reviewing pictures of the Democratic National Convention, held this past August [ed. 2008] in Denver, I couldn't help but notice that a statue of a horse on top of the Invesco Field (Mile High Stadium) looks alot like the Statue of Trigger out front of the Roy Rogers Museum.

Are these copies of the same statue?

Keep up the good work. I hope to make it to Branson soon to actually visit the Museum.

Thank You

Hi Joe,

Yes, you have a good eye. The horse at Mile High Stadium is a duplicate to our Trigger. Roy had the mold made for Trigger, and the folks there in Denver asked if they could have a duplicate statue cast for their field. Roy granted the permission, and after that one was made, the mold was destroyed.
