Here in Kentucky, our hearts are with Joann, and the volunteers at Old Friends in New York, and all the visitors, who loved Thunder Rumble. The magnificent star of Cabin Creek Farm died January 6 from complications due to colic. Thunder was an impressive horse, intelligent, dominant, high spirited, yet a loving, loyal friend. His bond with Joann was clearly an extraordinary one, the kind that a horse person can wait a lifetime for. While there are many wonderful horses at the New York farm, and even another Travers winner, Thunder Rumble seemed to be the spirit of Cabin Creek. My love to all who were fortunate to be part of his life.
