About me


Hi my name is Thunder and I am a gorgeous TB x looking for a new home as a Companion as unfortunately I am not sound enough to be ridden.

I have been in a short term loan home for the last six months and did a wonderful job keeping an injured horse company. I am now hoping to find a permanent home providing companionship to other horses.

I am a very sociable horse and love spending time in the field with my friends. I am a confident chap with lots of character and enjoy coming down to the yard for a nice groom. I love attention so am in my element if I'm being made a fuss of! I am even happy to be left alone for short periods once settled.

If you are interested in re-homing me or any other Blue Cross horse/pony, then please click on the Adopt me Now link. The Blue Cross holds up to 100 horses and ponies at any one time. Even if Thunder is not available please be assured Blue Cross are still actively trying to find you a suitable match for your needs and we will be in contact if successful.

Does your loved one have room in their heart, but not in their home, for a pet of their own? Blue Cross sponsorship is the perfect present for animal lovers.

Sponsor a pet as a gift for your loved one from as little as 70p a week, and they will receive monthly updates from real homeless pets in our care who are just waiting to meet their new families. Your chosen friend or family member will also receive a downloadable certificate from each of the dogs, cats, small pets and horses they’ve helped to find loving new homes.
