He’s In Charge of Those Beautiful Clydesdales – Watch How He Cares for Them

We posted quite a few “Budweiser Clydesdale” commercials for the Super Bowl, so I thought I’d post this to give you some idea of what it’s like to work with them on a day-to-day basis.

Clydesdales are not exclusive to Budweiser–they are a breed of draft horse native to Scotland, but now found throughout the world. Clydesdales are known for their gentle temperament, intelligence, and strength. They typically stand between 16 and 18 hands high and can weigh from 1,800 to 2,300 pounds. They have a thick mane and feathered legs, and are usually bay, black, brown, or roan in color. Clydesdales are popular for riding, showing, and driving, and have been used in farming and logging for centuries.

But the Budweiser Clydesdales are known around the world. They are bred at the Warm Springs Ranch in Boonville, Missouri. John Soto, the supervisor of the ranch, is responsible for 70 of these beautiful horses.

John has a lot of responsibilities. One of them is to be a breeding and birthing coach for the Clydesdales. In this clip, he shows some perfect examples for Budweiser’s standards. The horses that are selected to feature for Budweiser get the chance to pull the three Budweiser Clydesdale hitches that travel around the country. Wait till you see this beautiful “behind the scenes” story!
