Arrived: June 2010
Gentle, sweet Thor had a number of careers before retiring at Borderlands. Sadly, he did not come with much information but we do know that he was once owned and used by the Amish, sold through an auction in Minnesota where a rescue purchased him. He was adopted out to a youth group in Iowa, and once he could no longer handle the rigors of camp life, Thor came to Borderlands with his best friend Joe. Thor’s body showed the signs of his past career, including the harness marks and a blind eye. While at Borderlands, Thor went blind in the other eye. Luckily, he adjusted to being completely blind and fell in love with a mare, Queen (who wasn’t impressed with his possessive nature).
Thor’s gentle nature and kind spirit is greatly missed at Borderlands. We are very blessed to have known Thor and learned so many lessons from him.
