Saga of Xander and Thunder
Hello everyone! Today I have for you a look at Thunder and his family. For those who have followed the Thunder/Xander saga since this spring, you know that Thunder was injured while fighting off his 2014 son, Xander back in April. Even with the injury, the 19-year-old stallion did not give up and continued to stick close to his band all summer despite his son Xander now being in control. Over time, we witnessed Thunder’s strength and determination pay off when he began to get closer and closer to the band and Xander would chase him off less and less. This fall, we have seen Thunder getting around better, occasionally leading the band, and almost daily standing among them all. As of late, Thunder has been seen spending more and more time with mare Cowgirl in particular. This is a good thing as she is Xander’s mother. Time will tell if Thunder will ever heal enough to take the band from Xander but for now, this arrangement appears to be working out for all of them. Below are a few photos of the entire band. Enjoy!
