The story behind the Budweiser Clydesdales

With the Super Bowl coming up this Sunday, the Budweiser Clydesdales come to mind. Did you see the heartwarming ad last year, telling the love story between a horse and his breeder? In case you forgot or didn’t see, here is the clip:

You see the Clydesdales every year, pulling the Budweiser wagon through the daily Fair parades, and hanging out in their stables near FairView Farms during their breaks. Have you ever wondered where they started their careers?

From birth to wagon 

The Budweiser Cyldesdales joined the Amherst family more than 80 years ago and are loved and cared for, before they even leave the womb. Last year ABC did a news story about the horses’ birthplace, breeding and training, inspired by the 2013 Super Bowl commercial. You can watch the full story here:

We can’t wait to have them on our grounds again and we’re excited to see them in this year’s Super Bowl commercial.

UPDATE: Budweiser released their 2014 Super Bowl Clydesdale commercial early! Watch yet another heartwarming tale unfold here:
