Singing cowboy relics for sale

An upcoming auction will feature the belongings of the singing movie cowboy Roy Rogers, including his horse, Trigger, which has been stuffed.

The items, to be sold by Christie's in New York next week are from the now-closed Roy Rogers and Dale Evans museum in Branson, Missouri.

The estimate for Trigger is $100,000 to $200,000. Hand-drawn music for the theme song "Happy Trails" has an estimate of $300 to $500. Rogers died in 1998, aged 87, and his wife, Dale Evans, in 2001.
