Raising Baby Clydesdales Must Be An Awesome Job [VIDEO]
It's no secret that I love the Budweiser Clydesdales. I mean, whenever a new commercial pops up, I'm sharing it on here. But this story takes the 'awww' factor to a whole new level as USA Today did a story on the man who raises the babies. Adorable!
Did you know that the Clydesdales have blow dryers used to fluff up some of their hair? Or that, out of all the foals produced, only the ones that fit the physical standard of white face, dark mane, and the perfect color become part of the team? The story tells some of the behind-the-scenes secrets of these majestic horses and the way they're presented to the public.
But the stars of this piece are the foals themselves. They're so beautiful! And they're such typical babies, despite the fact that they're not exactly small. (well, in comparison to their Moms, they are!)
I'm sure there are downsides to this guy's job. I mean, not every pregnancy ends happily. And the horses get old or sick. But the magic and joy of spending days with all these adorable Clydesdale babies has to make it all worth it.
