I hate crowds with a passion. However, I’m a horse freak in the sense that I have great admiration for their beauty. It is not necessary for me to own one and our two acres wouldn’t really support a horse. Mr. Golfcart, however, has a four acre pasture and nary a horse.

I talked Poppie into going with me to Anheuser-Busch to see the Clydesdales on March 8th. It was a lovely day and I thought you might like to see my photos.

Clydesdales 1-2098
The start of the parade
Clydesdales 2-2100
Rounding the corner. Notice the Dalmation dog next to the two drivers.
At one stop, people asked the drivers to take selfies of themselves. Hilarious.
Clydesdales 3-2101
Clydesdales 4-2102
I think this is why they stopped at that back corner. Free beer.
Clydesdales 5-2104
The horseshoes were slightly bigger than the feet.
I was surprised at how flat the horseshoes were.
Clydesdales 6-2106
The End


    1. When you search for images of Belgian draft horses, all kinds come up – some with black or stockings, some without. The sheer size of the Clydesdales amazed me. And all that WEIGHT of the harness stuff! It’s amazing they are agreeable to wearing all that.

  1. What magnificent animals! Love, love, love them! My grandparents raised race horses, horses, and mules just outside Lexington, KY. Daddy always said a mule was a great animal…good worker.

      1. I would have gone also. I love the Clydesdales and I knew you loved horses. You call me to take a day off to work in the dirt but can’t call me to go see the horses. I’m just shaking my head. Pretty pictures. I wish I was there.

  2. Nice photos and I found it odd to not know that my sister was a “horse freak”. I love dobermans for the same reason – majestic beauty in it’s purest form.

  3. They are beautiful! I had a great uncle who raised draft horses (not Clydesdales, though, some other type). I couldn’t believe how huge they were! As a kid I always thought it was a waste that they were too big to ride on, but he used them to pull wagons in parades and weddings and other events. So pretty!

  4. Beautiful! And majestic, indeed. I saw the Budweiser Clydesdale’s in Nashville a few years ago and my daughter and I were in awe of how huge they were! Just gorgeous animals. Glad you got to see them, too! Thanks for sharing your experience with us.
