According to a member of the Randall family, of the late Glenn Randall Sr., the famous horse trainer, Silver's owner lived in the eastern part of United States. Silver was transported to California by another person. Glenn, Silver, Silver's owner, and transporter have sinced passed away. Silver stayed in the barn at the Randall Ranch in Newhall, California during the process of filming the Lone Ranger television series starring actor Clayton Moore who was Silver's rider.

Clairification on locations of the Randall Ranch.
It was unclear to Horse Fame at the time of the original writing that the Randall Ranch was not in Newhall, California during the Lone Ranger filming.

Comments & info from : November 2001 Loretta Kemsley

Lone Ranger's Silver could not have been stabled at the Randall Ranch in Newhall during the filming because Randall was on Sherman Way in North Hollywood at that time. Silver belonged to Hudkin Bros and was stabled at their place in Burbank (now Forest Lawn Cemetery), then later in North Hollywood when they moved to Coldwater Canyon, which is where I met the Hudkins. After Hudkin Bros. closed down, Silver may have gone to Randall's. Hudkin's and Randall's were within a block or two of each other in North Hollywood and both were gone from that area in mid-60s because of zoning changes.

The origional Lone Ranger was Brace Beamer from Oxford, Michigan. Did you realize that he did own a horse named Silver. I do have a taped radio interview of his.
