Thunderbird was purchased at the Kelso ram sales in 2013 for £6,500. Sired by the Brackenridge Strongbow who was top price at Kelso in 2012 when sold for £14,000. He is a tremendously powerful ram with great carcass and mobility, along with good breed character. These traits were rewarded in the show ring in 2015 when Thunderbird won Breed Champion at the Great Yorkshire Show where he then went on to stand Reserve Interbreed Champion (this is his only time shown); he also won best stock ram in the North West Flock competition in 2014. Thunderbird also has great Signet Performance Recording figures, he has an index of 296, firmly in the top 10% of the breed, with a top 5% muscle figure.

His first 9 sons sold to average 1,790gns; these include Hull House Valdaron selling for 3,600gns to Messrs Whiteford of Brampton, Hull House Warbird selling for 3,000gns to the Scogtonhead flock and 2,200gns for Hull House Vigilante to Mark Keighley, Manderlea flock.
