First of all, if he is a paint (or paint colored) he CANNOT be AQHA registered. Second, since I'm an AQHA member I looked up "THUNDER" as a registered name. There is only one, he's a sorrel gelding born in 1983.
If you NEED papers for whatever you are planning to do with this horse, DON'T BUY HIM! It is like pulling teeth from an Egyptian mummy in the Smithsonian trying to file lost or stolen papers from AQHA. And if there was incomplete paperwork from transfered owners and/or if the registration was ever truely completed, you will have to find the original breeders for signatures and pay ALL the fees from the point the papers got "lost" or whatever til now, including any ownership transfers and all of those people signatures.
If you don't NEED papers, then buy the horse WITH A BILL OF SALE AND PICTURES!!!! I don't trust anyone with a "papered but I can't find them" horse. I know not everyone is a liar, but too many are and you don't want to find yourself in a legal matter with stolen horse!
One is closer to God's heart on a horse than anywhere else on earth!
