The most recognizable horses in the world are the Budweiser Clydesdales. They are more than simply Anheuser-mascot; Busch’s they have thousands of admirers all over the world. Despite touring internationally, they are perhaps most recognized for their cherished roles in Super Bowl television ads.
In April 1933, August Busch and Adolphus Busch III gave their father, August A. Busch, Sr., a surprise present of six horses. The team is still going strong today and includes a sweet new member called Carly, who is the first foal born in 2019.
At their horse breeding and training facility, Warm Spring Ranch, a baby named Carly was born in September. Facebook users were informed of the cute foal’s birth and her clumsy first steps. Carly is satisfied for the time being to just enjoy being a baby and hanging out with her mother. She will eventually try to inform the public and serve as a breed ambassador, though.
Because all of those horses are male, Carly will never be able to draw a wagon loaded with booze. At 18 hands, the males are enormous and can weigh up to 2200 pounds. Each of their horseshoes is 20″ long and 20 pounds in weight. 130 pounds are borne by their intricately made collars and harnesses. They were given short names like Duke, Mark, and Bud so that the driver could communicate with the horses more easily while they were performing.
The horses are housed in a stunning 1885 red brick structure. On the grounds of their training grounds in St. Louis, Missouri, lies the stunning building known as Warm Springs Ranch. About two dozen foals are welcomed into the Budweiser family each year at the ranch.
The public can take tours of Warm Springs. You can choose a guided tour or a VIP tour. Either one provides a behind the scenes look at “what it takes to breed a legend” and gives you an up close and personal look at the gorgeous Clydesdales as well as the super cute Carly.
