2. I power washed the Clydesdale trucks and trailers years ago when they came to town. I worked for

the Bud distributor and that's part of the contract. It was a fun easy money morning for me. I got to meet the crew, get a tour and pet the dogs. Those guys had a great job if you don't mind being on the road all the time.

3. I never realized those big, bulky horses could prance like that.

Really beautiful to watch, with those huge, fluffy feet!

6. These guys are HUGE!

If you ever get a chance to stand next one, prepare to feel tiny.

Lovely team.

12. The Clydesdales used to be housed ...

Part of the year here at Busch Gardens here in Wmsbrg, VA. We used to go a few times a year & always visited their stables when they were open to the public.

And they ARE HUGE!
(As are their male body parts! )

11. Majestic Creatures!!

Too Bad Anheuser-Busch is no longer an American owned company.

The Belgian brewer InBev acquired Anheuser-Busch in 2008 to create the massive company called Anheuser-Busch InBev (AHBIF). A spokesman for Anheuser-Busch insisted to CNNMoney that Budweiser, the beer, is thoroughly American, even though its parent company is from Belgium.May 10, 2016

13. Only in America...

Did all the fans get a free beer?

But they are beautiful horses. These "work" horses were originally bred to carry warriors wearing heavy armor which is why they are so big.
