Very beautiful horses, the people that raise them and care for them are very special people. The Budweiser Clydesdales are one of the most famous groups of horses in the world. They are born and bred in-house as part of a multi-million-dollar operation. This clip shows how detailed this organization is and just what goes into finding the perfect horses for their commercials. Their commercials are one of the most highly anticipated and enjoyed ads during the Super Bowl every year… and lately somewhat controversial as well, but that should not be reason to impugn these amazing horses.
These beautiful creatures they use to advertise their product are bred, fed, and trained at the sprawling Warm Springs Ranch in Booneville, Missouri by Jeff Knapper. He loves his horses and it shows, and they also seem to love him. Just watch how they react to him in this clip. He is in charge of the entire facility where the horses are bred and raised, but of course he has a team of people to help with this enormous job.
Only a male horse is qualified to become a Budweiser Clydesdale, and they only choose ten each year, but the little female foal in the video became a star in her own right and you will want to see how it happens. This video shows us the story behind the Clydesdales and features a special baby named Hope. Hope went on to become the star of Budweiser’s 2013 award-winning Super Bowl XLVII commercial entitled “Brotherhood”.
They are a wonderful breed of horses. Lived in that state for 25 years andI just found out that they were trained in that state. Learn something new every day!
