I'd never seen this commercial before a friend forwarded it to me. Certainly caused me to pause in my day.

I'm glad Budweiser retained the same ad agency, if not the same ownership!! :thumbsup:

I've seen the Bud Clydesdales a couple of times as I live not too far from Busch Gardens theme park in Williamsburg.

Let me tell you, those horses are magfificent creatures! I'm over six feet tall and all of the ones I saw are taller than I am. Muscles bulging everywhere; beautiful chestnut brown color.

Anheuser takes VERY good care of these horses. You could almost eat supper off the floor of the stable it's so clean.

Really stunning, they are. Almost like they're from another place and time.

If you get a chance, go see them. Really beautiful horses.

Mark- My daughter dragged me on 2 rounds of all the coasters at Busch Gardens on the 18 of August. Yikes!

A friend of my mother raised clydesdales. Some of their's had Busch blood lines. The deal was that Busch had first chance to buy any of them that were going to be sold.

Mark you are so right on. I've seen their horses and they are magnificent - Clydesdales. The ones I saw were in Tampa and the trailers they use for them are better than most motor homes. A tradition for excellence that I certainly hope contines.

Almost every morning I get to ride my bike down a path that runs by Grant's Farm, where they raise the Budweiser Clydesdales. There was a colt born in May that is stunning to look at. Deep chestnut coat...loves to run. When InBev took over, my biggest fear was that they'd close the farm. So far, we've been lucky.
