We thought this ABC News story about the Anheuser-Busch Clydesdale equine operation was worth sharing. Many people unfamiliar with the Equine Industry are quite familiar with the Budweiser Clydesdale, but what goes on behind the scenes to raise these iconic horses?
From their birth in Boonsville, Missouri to training and “showtime” in St Louis, these Clydesdales are well cared for animals and important to the Budweiser family. The breeding operation, led by Jeff Knapper, foals out 43 horses per year! The requirements for those foals kept to be raised by Anheuser-Busch are quite stringent, the remaining foals are sold to farms around the world. Anheuser-Busch clearly takes pride in its equine operation!
