Denver Broncos - Thunder during opening ceremony
In September 12th 1993, Thunder became the mascot for the team, but there were more than one horse- Thunder Sr., Thunder II and Thunder III. As a mascot a horse must own stability, because during a game there is a lot of chaos, noises and loud sounds, fireworks, so the animal must be well-trained and patient. All of the Bronco`s mascot horses were purebred Arabians from great bloodlines. Each one of them was a show horse before becoming a mascot, so they didn`t need a lot of training.
The newest Thunder who appeared at Superbowl 48 for the first time have been especially prepared for its position and tasks. So have a closer look at the video below and how incredible he is along with his partner Wegener. That horse simple loves his job and the crowd and loud sounds don`t bother him. Share this lovely story and video with your animal loving friends and family!
