Did any of you see the Denver Bronco’s mascot, THUNDER, on Sunday! HE ALMOST DIDN’T MAKE IT THERE!






First of all, did you see the Denver Bronco’s mascot, Thunder, at the game?  I didn’t, either.  I totally missed him.  Phooey.  I would have loved to have seen him thunder into the arena, leading the players!

I read that he is a 16 year-old Arab gelding.  They say he was picked to be Thunder #3 because of his temperament – very easy going, tractable and unflappable.

I know Thunder is a fan/crowd favorite and I’m glad to know that he was there, acting as a fine equine ambassador.

But the interesting tidbit is that he almost didn’t make it to the Super Bowl due to very bad weather!

Here is the story – originally posted here.

    Honestly – what idiot would try to haul a horse trailer in snow and ice? What were they trying to do – collect mortality insurance so they could buy a new younger mascot? I’m sure it was just a money-saving strategy but frankly even if the Broncos’ owner had to hock his Rolex to do so this horse should have gone by air. Even the fully-outfitted horse transports won’t go in the snow especially over the Sierras.

    You are correct. I didn’t catch that… I deleted the HORSE AND RIDER article because
    it must not be about Thunder #3, even though it was a recent article. Thank you for catching it.

    If he is only 16 how can he be a 1994 would he not be 2000? If he was a 1994 wouldn’t that make him 22?
