We had the opportunity this week to watch two young Clydesdales being trained for pulling.
The Clydesdale is a breed of draft horse derived from the farm horses of Clydesdale, Scotland, and named after that region. Thought to be over 300 years old, the breed was extensively used for pulling heavy loads in rural, industrial and urban settings, their common use extending into the 1960s when they were still a familiar sight pulling the carts of milk and vegetable vendors.
They have been exported in the Commonwealth and United States where they are famous for their use as the mascot of various beer brands, including Anheuser-Busch's Budweiser brand, Carlton & United Beverages and several others.
I thought maybe you'd like to see the Miller High Life Holiday commercial that uses a Clydesdale horse in its snowy winter scene. Every time I see this commercial during the holidays it brings tears to my eyes.
Robin, I hope this post qualifies for your Summer Stock Sunday meme.
