Broncos Lose a Stallion

20090422__thunder1998p1For 10 years, at every home game in Denver there was one constant presence on the sidelines; Thunder Sr. the horse. Alas, the Littleton Large Animal Clinic reported that Thunder took his last gallop on Saturday.

Since he made his debut on Sept 12, 1993, in a Broncos victory over the San Diego Chargers, Thunder was on the field for some of the franchise’s biggest moments over the following 10 seasons; including appearing at both Super Bowl XXXII and XXXIII.

In 2003, Thunder retired from the game, looking to spend some time with the kids and eat some great hay. Although Thunder himself was irreplaceable, the Broncos went on with a new mascot, Thunder II.

Thunder Sr. was 27 years old.
