LEXINGTON, KY. (AP) - Diehard Elvis fans know he loved horses, and they lined up to hear some horse talk from the wife of the king.

Fans waited several hours Friday at Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington for a chance to have Priscilla Presley sign toy models of her late husband's gold palomino, Rising Sun.

Elvis bought horses for everyone in his entourage, Priscilla Presley told the crowd, "whether you liked horses or not and whether you were afraid of them or not, because if you were, he was going to break you of that."

Presley was at the horse park as part of Breyer Fest, an annual convention of toy horse collectors. Toy horse maker Breyer was introducing its Elvis Presley Collection, which features Elvis riding Rising Sun.
