Imagine turning 4 years old and weighing 1,250 lbs? We got a chance to hang out with the most popular guy on the West Texas A & M campus.... His name is Thunder Eight and he is 4 years old this weekend.
Thunder's handlers are the WT Herdsmen, a spirit group of male students that train, play and feed Thunder Eight everyday. The guys I spoke with today said it was a privilege to be a Herdsman. They believe in sharing the WT spirit with all that will listen. It's more than taking a buffalo around town and running down the football field. It's about leadership and character.
