    The people from PETA (I call them People Eating Tasty Animals) and other animal activists who say that it is inhumane for the Clydesdales to pull the wagon have zero concept of just how big, strong, and powerful they are. To be selected they must be a make gelding at least four years old, stand at least 18 hands or more at the withers, thatโ€™s a minimum of 6โ€™, will weigh approx between 1,800 – 2,300 pounds. Thatโ€™s huge! There are a team of eight pulling the wagon and all the combined weight of the harnesses, reins, comes to about 12 tons. Each horse can easily pull twice its weight and more. They are happy when they do it! Transportation for each hitch requires three 50-foot semis. Two carry the horses, the third transports a red, white and gold beer wagon and other equipment. The horses' comfort is enhanced with "air-cushioned suspension and thick rubber flooring", and cameras in the trailers enable the drivers to watch the horses during transport. The team stops each night at local stables. To say that they are well cared for is an understatement.

    I absolutely love these horses. When I was a kid, my Mom would have a bus ride to the 'Danbury Connecticut State Fair', and we had SOOOO much fun there. They would have a parade, and then, the Clydesdales would come marching. I miss that.

  • I can say as a Budweiser Beer Drinker. I was able to make my Dad's wish Come True. My Dad lost both of his legs when he was 6yrs old, he was pushed on to a train tracks and hit by a train. They Doctors didn't think he would live or walk ever. My Grandma was a Very Religious Woman. She took my father everyday when he came home to St John Neumann Church. Slowly his body started to heal. 1 year after he left the hospital which was almost 2 years after he was hit by the train. He walked into the hospital with wooden legs. He grew up without the special help of anything. He was a Proud Man. My Great Grandma who I never met taught my Dad how to train horses. So all his life from he loved and we owned horses. I found out that the Budweiser Wagon would be in my area. We were selling pony rides. When I saw the Budweiser Wagon I explained what happened to my Dad and how much he loved horses. They let him on the Wagon and drive it around the park. The look on my Dad's face I will never forget. I was 23 when my Dad passed away but when I see the Budweiser wagon ut makes me think of my Dad
    Beautiful Horses

  • Where I grew up my neighbour had a Clydesdale named Molly she was everyone's pet so gentle we use to climb up on her back and ride her around the farmyard. Such powerful creatures but such gentle giants.

  • I was in Missouri many years ago and my uncle took me to the brewery. He had connections with one if the higher ups, and i got to see behind the scenes. But the high point was touching a foal, and helpto brush one of the wagon pullers. I'll never forget the feeling when i saw them. I actually started crying they looked so majestic. It took my breath away.

  • My mother was born in St Louis in 1917 and attended a Catholic school near where the last fire station was that still used the carriages and horses, like those in the Budweiser commercials. She used to tell us about when she was in the second grade and had an elderly nun when that last fire station had changed over to the new gas powered fire trucks with sirens. She said every time a fire truck went by with the sirens, the old nun would make them stop everything and pray as she felt the siren was all the lost souls in hell crying out at once. Mother said prior to that, they not only had the horse drawn wagons, they really had the Dalmatian sitting next to the driver, who would be clanging on a bell. Times have really changed in a little over 100 years. Just as a note, she had also seen the last concert that John Phillip Sousa and his band played on his last tour within the US.

    These giants in person are sooooo big and glorious. You can tear up when you see these grand horses in person, marching in step, beautiful and majestic. You will swell with pride just being a part of it all, if all you are doing, is admiring.

  • So glad the females are being treated with royalty and in cleanliness. One day there will be females trotting down that Super Bowl road. What do you do with the females that no longer can have babies?

  • Gorgeous majestic giants of the horse world. I love horses and these horses even more so๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ

  • I used to see the Clydesdales almost every day at Seaworld San Diego. They would come over to see me and I really enjoyed watching the little ones growing up. Annie the Dalmatian too. When the Budweiser Company was sold and the Clydesdales had gone, so was I. No horses no more yearly pass. I haven't been back since. I really enjoyed the piece on the Clydesdales and it really brought back some great memories.

  • I'm a horse lover, and am so proud that I was born and have lived all my life in the Clydesdale district of South Lanarkshire, in Scotland, where the Clydesdale horse originated. They are gorgeous, majestic, gentle animals, and it makes me proud that an American thought so too, and imported them to the USA ๐Ÿด

  • Sad using any animal to promote the dangerous alcohol drug; advertising for the alcohol drug should NEVER be allowed on media or anywhere else.

  • They are breathtakingly beautiful. I wish all horses were treated w/ kid gloves like these Clydesdales. ALL HORSES. The Bud commercial was the BEST commercial ever seen. ALL horses should be treated w/ respect. NOT SOLD TO MEXICO to be slaughtered. It's just unfathomable. IT''S JUST NOT RIGHT.

  • Seeing videos like this and how these people treat these animals like queens and kings make me sad for the animals that end up in sick places with sick people that neglect and starve and kill animals. Back to a positive word, awesome beautiful animals…..

  • Iโ€™m a Scottish woman in my 50 s and grew up just outside Glasgow my grandfather worked with Clydesdales his whole working life and I remember when I was a girl he told me about one horse that was a rebel and cornered him in the stable so he took out his rolled up newspaper from his back pocket and smacked him on the nose with it everyday after that when he would pass his stable the horse would grab his paper and throw it away he loved that horse and went to see him often after he retired I didnโ€™t know Clydesdales were in America but Iโ€™m so glad they are and you love them so much there used here as police horses and you should see them in action especially when there used to control the crowds when Celtic and Rangers are playing.

    When people tell you there isn't enough land/homes for all the current humans.. just remember hundreds of acres were reserved for horses to peddle beer ….

    I have always loved these majestic creatures.

    Praying that the fate of the females and the males that are not kept by Budweiser do not have a dreadful fate. I hope that they too can look forward to a life of green pastures and love. … I found this online .. WHAT HAPPENS TO THE HORSES BUDWEISER DOES NOT KEEP … ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ

  • My grandfather farmed with these gorgeous beasts. They were treasured members of the family. Im named after one! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • My late brother got to visit the farm in the late 1960s with a FFA tour. He spoke of how amazing the operation was and how beautiful the horses were.
