A diamond in the rough
Elize vd Broekkant
Thunder vd Zuuthoeve
Jura van St. Maarten
Thunder Munny is exactly what you would expect with bloodlines like his and certainly all the potential to be a top sport horse. He is one of the more attractive Thunder van de Zuuthoeve offspring out there, all paired with correct conformation, an energetic canter, strength, and sharpness. He is very easy to handle with no colt-like behavior and gets on just fine with all daily routines and farrier/vet visits. His maternal brother by Canturo was retained by Aliboo Farm as a stallion prospect, as was his full brother from the previous year. So far, they are showing great jumping potential, excellent canter, and rideability.
Dam, Elize van de Broekkant, and granddam, Nouvelle M, both competed to 1.30m with an amateur rider before retiring as broodmares. Nouvelle M went on to produce four foals all whom jumped 1.20m or more. Gontender van de Broekkant by Montender, Caia by Perhaps van de Molenvondel, and Hera van de Broekkant by Corland - who was WBFSH ranked 783th place in CIC1* under Zoe Dawson in 2015.
