What’s a cowboy without his horse? Screen legend John Wayne had a favorite horse that he starred alongside in several of his films. During his later career, Wayne appeared alongside the horse Dollor in some of his most classic westerns. The actor had an affinity for the chestnut quarter horse that appeared in his films, so much so Wayne often requested him by name.
Dick Webb Movie Productions owned the show horse. Wayne even went so far as to strike a contract with the production so that he was the only one allowed to ride Dollor on film. "'Dollor is a movie legend just as much as John Wayne was,' owner Debra Keffeler told the Chicago Tribune in 1985. 'A cowboy is not a cowboy without his horse. They're both my heroes.'"
Wayne made alterations to the script to give his equestrian friend proper screen time. He incorporated several mentions of Dollor’s name into the film. Howard and Debra Keffeler bought the horse, aware of its star-studded past. They gave Dollor a peaceful retirement on their Texas ranch, occasionally bringing him out for appearances. Reportedly, Dollor ended up living to the grand age of 27-years-old. He passed away sometime in 1995, joining Wayne off into the great beyond.
