    Aren't you glad you had him in the end? What a happy ending for him and for you to of had him. My sincere sympathy to you in your loss, but gladness in having him.

    Unhappy RIP Thunder

    I knew Thunder (your Dux) when I worked for Leslie Howard. I was so glad to know he found a truly special and caring home in the end. He was fortunate indeed. I shed a few tears for him, as he was one of m favorites. God bless you for giving him a forever home. Hugs to you, Dianna.

    I never saw the original thread but I am so glad that I found this one now!

    RIP and Godspeed Dux and thank you Tazer for giving such a classy horse a fitting end to his life. You are one class act in every possible way (and thanks to Addison too! )

    Vaya con Dios, Dux.
    Thank you Tazer for giving him his life and dignity back.
    I'm sure he left in peace.

    I too am reading all of this for the first time. I am so sorry I did not know about it from the beginning so I could have had 2 years to be happy for Dux...I am however, so happy for the two wonderful years he had with Tazer.

    Yes, he certainly got his dignity back. He seemed so grateful...as though he knew he was in good hands again.

    Tazer, I am SO sorry for your loss. I just read this thread for the first time and I have to say, this has got to be the best COTH thread ever. What an amazing story.

    Ditto this.

    I think of him, and this story, very often.

    Godspeed and God Bless to those who gave him such a wonderful life and great happiness at the end of it.

    I, too, did not see the original thread and was so saddened when I realized that 2 years had passed and now this wonderful horse was not with Tazer anymore. What a beautiful story ; this boy finally got the retirement he deserved after doing so much for so many riders. I have the privilege of being a caretaker for an older horse; he didn't take well to retirement and I have the wonderful job of riding him every day. At 27, he still has lots to teach and I value every ride I have on him!

    Ditto!! Started reading this thread last night and it´s an amazing story and also a very very sad one. Makes me never wanna sell a horse ever..well done Tazer!!

    BUT just want to share another much happier story that makes you believe in humanity again.. a friends daughter works at Christian Ahlmanns stables (german toprider if you don´t know his name) and Cöster his olympic mount is enjoying his retirement in a field at the farm together with two shetland ponies and is still the king!

    Here´s his website where Cöster has his own page!!

    I am just reading though this thread for the first time. What a roller-coaster of emotions. Dux was very lucky to have found you. Sending hugs to you and everyone's heart that Dux touched.

    They called him 'Thunder'? Any funny stories to share about him during those days? I'm sure Tazer would love to hear 'em,... and I know I would. He was such a special, smart, opinionated horse.

    Godspeed Dux.

    So sorry for your loss! This thread really peaked my interest 2 years ago because we had a November Rain in our barn in Fl@Wef about 4-5 years ago and it turned out to be him! I was horrified at his situation and then so elated when Tazer got him. I have a 20 year old jumper who will never be with anyone but me no matter what I have to do. I hope and pray he has many more years. I am so happy that TM was able to live happy and healthy with you!!!

    oh, I am so sorry! I followed the original thread as well and always wondered how he was doing. I will go back and reread the thread now. Any pictures?
    Thank you Tazer (never realized you were CS!). You have done a lot of good for many horses!! Thank you!
    He was one of the lucky ones!
