    Up till 5-10 yrs ago the Clydesdales would go past our house and stay at the enclosed stables up from our house. Always a beautiful site, seeing the caravan of tractor-trailers rolling past the house. They stayed at the farm and then would be taken into Morgantown for MountainFest Motorcycle Rally.

    Budweiser 9-11 Tribute

    I have watched this several times, and I can't get through it without reaching for my hanky. It is one of the most poignant things I have ever witnessed. The Gentle Giants pay tribute to the victims of 9-11.



    I recall a few years back seeing a television documentary entitled "The Gentle Giants". It was the story of the Budweiser Clydesdales, their origin from the area of the River Clyde in Scotland, their breeding and training for their life as a Budweiser representative. It was very moving; wish I could see it again. These beautiful animals, in full harness pulling the wagon are an American Icon as much as is baseball, apple pie and the Bald Eagle. May the Budweiser Clydesdales be here for my grandchildren and their grandchildren. The word "magnificent" always comes to mind when I see them.
    Have wings, will travel.

    I new a farmer that would buy Clydesdales from the same farmer that Bud weider yses, they would be the ones that did not have the correct color or for other reasons, but he would plow fields every year with them.

    Great post. Thanks Superglidesport.

    We are fortunate to get to see them every year in person at or near Busch Stadium, home of our St. Louis Cardinals. Opening day at Busch Stadium is a tradition for the Clydesdales to circle the playing field before the official start of the Cardinals home opener to loud cheers and a standing ovation.

    During the 2014 baseball season, they brought the Clydesdales out on the streets around the stadium and positioned them at various spots. Some of the caretakers would actually let you pet one of the Gentle Giants under their watchful eyes. They always draw a crowd. (I have a few pictures of them standing on the streets, but cannot find them at the moment).

    Here are a few pictures when we went to a World Series game in 2013.

    Ilmo,

    Nice photos!! Those Clydesdales are beautiful animals. I worked for Budweiser back in the late '70's and had an opportunity to vacation at Busch Gardens and visit a few of their breweries. On occasion when friends or family visit from other parts of the country we'll take them up to Merrimack, NH for the brewery tour. The Clydesdales are usually everyone's favorite part of the trip! My Grandson loved the horses and trip but my daughter and SIL not so much. They're beer snobs and only drink the rare and expensive stuff. Not that they can afford it.............

    Here's the link to the Merrimack, NH Brewery and Clydesdale Tour:
