Countless Americans grew up on this classic Western television series, which debuted in 1959 and ran until 1973. The series chronicled the adventures of Ben Cartwright and his three sons on their sprawling Ponderosa Ranch in Nevada Territory during the 1860s.
As the imposing powerhouse Hoss Cartwright, actor Dan Blocker was matched with a 15.3 hand Quarter Horse / Thoroughbred-cross gelding, named Chub, who weighed a sturdy 1.250 pounds. Over its 14-year run, many horses (and actors) came and went, but Chub remained with the series from start to finish.
