Hollywood Gold

       "We really didn't know what we had in Hollywood Gold," admitted J.J. Gibson, who spent almost as many years with the Four Sixes as George Humphreys. "I guess we really didn't know how good he was until he was gone, which was 1964. I always called him a palomino. He wasn't tall, maybe 14.2 and weighed somewhat over 1,000 pounds. His eyes are what I rememeber the most about him. They were unbelievably big, pretty and soft. Even mares who still trace to him today have those eyes."
           "Hollywood was always good-natured. His colts were the same way and easy to break. He had tremendous stamina and good feet and legs. He passed most of his positive qualities on to his offspring."

       Foaled in 1940, by Gold Rush out of Triangle Lady 17, Hollywood Gold was bred by the Tom L. Burnett Cattle Company, a part of the Burnett Ranches. At 15 hands tall and weighing a little more than 1,000 pounds, the dun (often referred to as palomino) stallion was sent to George Humphreys at the Four Sixes at Guthrie. Humphreys worked cattle with the stallion he referred to as the smartest horse he had ever ridden. In addition to working cattle, Hollywood Gold sired 263 registered foals in 23 seasons. The smart horse with the big, soft eyes was put down in 1964 due to failing, arthritic legs.
