Blanket-spotted Pre-registry Owned by World Champ. Bulldogger Faye Hubbard b/b Sam Fisher, o/b Fernie Hubbard, Montana died 1945
Fern Hubbard - Keeper of the Rex lineage for 35 years
Rex was purchased by the Palouse Indian, Sam Fisher . Rex was about 147cm tall, he was never registered and he probably traveled farther and sired more foals throughout the United States than any other stallion in the unregistered days.
Rex was a quiet horse who often traveled with the rode horses in a boxcar. Faye said of Rex: "He was as tough as he was handsome. We've ridden horses from Wilcox to Hay, Washington in less than a day and he was still thriving."
Fern Hubbard spent less time at rodeos than Faye because his specialty was bronc riding. Fern confirmed that Rex was the father of old Trixie , mother of Toby I. So Toby I was a grandson of Rex and the mare Lucy, both bred by Sam Fisher.
