DDMinis KSB Peppys Powerful Thunder was purchased along with his mother, Heartlands Peppys Keepsake, from KSB Miniatures during their Summer Auction in 2012. He arrived at our farm at 17 days old with two severe eye infections in both of his eyes. He was checked out by the Louisville, KY Equine Services Vet clinic on his trip to us. The vet did not think his eye would make it to Tennessee without rupturing. The vet that checked him felt that he would lose his eye during the trip and suggested to have it removed surgically before finishing his journey to us. I told the vet that I wanted to attempt to treat his eye with medicine before performing such a drastic operation.

For the first two months, my husband and I treated Thunder’s eyes four times a day. (5:30 am, 1:30 pm, 5:30 pm, and 9:30 pm) Monday, July 16th DDMinis KSB Peppys Powerful Thunder was rechecked by our one of our vets at Tennessee Equine Hospital and was given a great checkup. We then treated his eyes twice a day until September 20, 2012. At that point, he was given a clean bill of health.
Not only did he NOT lose his eyes, but he also has very little scaring. We will continue to look over his eyes on a daily basis to make sure they do not relapse.
Thunder showed in AMHA in 2015 and was 5th at AMHA Worlds in his size division. I currently plan to show in in 2018 to go to Nationals.
Pedigree is at All Breed Pedigree.
DDMinis KSB Peppys Powerful Thunder has registration papers with both the American Miniature Horse Association (AMHA) and the American Miniature Horse Registry (AMHR).
