William Boyd's horse. When Boyd, the actor who portrayed the character of Hopalong Cassidy for approximately 40 years during which he took made 66 feature films and 52 half-hour television shows, took Grace Bradley as his wife in 1937, he obtained Topper that same year. The white stallion was named by way of Grace after her favorite book series, "Topper," written by Thorne Smith. Thoughout the years, Topper remained Hopalong Cassidy's favorite horse because of the fact that he was a trustworthy animal, noted and admired for his constant cooperation, not only with his owner, but also with children who would sometimes pull on his mane and other such things. He died in 1961 at 26 years of age.
