One of the few advertisements that people can recall so well is the one with the Budweiser Clydesdales. The emotional content and, of course, the stunning horses will move you even if you don’t drink.
So where did these gorgeous dark bay women originate from, with their distinctive broad blazes and four white socks? In order for these foals to grow up and act in everything from parades to commercials, extra particular care must be taken not just during breeding but also during socializing.
John Soto is that “someone.” He manages the 300-acre Warm Springs Ranch in Boonville, Missouri, which is home to the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales.
Over the past 35 years, Soto has helped maintain their stunning stock and made sure that every foal is born healthy and content. He has helped to raise 400–500 Clydesdales over that period. Also, he takes care of the retired horses who have worked in the harness.
Then it’s up to him to make sure these beauties are properly raised so they can perform as expected when they join one of Budweiser’s three traveling teams. And, despite the fact that these baby horses are full of sass and attitude, Soto treats them all with love and care.
