A horse-purchasing journey to Walls, Mississippi, led the gospel singer and King of Rock and Roll to a 65-foot tall, vivid white cross on a cattle ranch with a "For Sale" sign out front. Elvis acquired the ranch, renamed it the Circle G (for Graceland), and found a smooth gaited horse to journey along its fence line: a prize-winning, flat-shod black Tennessee Walking Horse gelding, named Bear. Elvis would saddle Bear up prior to breakfast and collectively they would discover the 163 acre ranch. Supporters were accustomed to locating the pair, the glossy black-coated gelding and his rider, driving along the estate. Regardless of whether galloping along the fieldstone partitions of Graceland, examining on cattle at the Circle G, or quietly waiting as his well-known rider signed autographs for followers, Bear earned a unique location as a companion and pal amongst all the King's horses.
