The Budweiser Clydesdales is a group of Clydesdale horses used for commercials and promotions by the brewing company Budweiser. The horses are divided into teams and travel all around the U.S and other countries.
They are usually housed in their homes at the company headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri. The stable was built for them in 1885 and is made of stained glass and historic bricks.
Each team or hitch of horses has 10 horses in total. However, only 8 horses are driven at any given point in time. The rest 2 are there as alternatives in case of emergencies.
These Clydesdales are at least 6 feet tall and a minimum of 4 years old. They have four white stockings and are covered with a bay coat. The face has a bit of white. The mane & tail is black, and they weigh around 1800- 2300 pounds.
Budweiser Clydesdales have designated short names. Some of them are called Duke, Bud & Mark. Naming the horses makes it easier for the horse trainers to train and know them.
These beautiful Budweiser Clydesdales are used in commercials as animal actors for Budweiser beer, particularly for the Super Bowl ads. These horses never miss a chance to impress the viewers with the powerful performance.
A Super Bowl ad was released that pays its tribute to the people who lost their lives in the 9/ 11 tragedy. The Clydesdales pay their respect by bowing their heads after 10 years of 9/11.
