The Famous Budweiser Clydesdales Welcome Some New Foals. Can We Meet Them?
Warm Springs Ranch is a 300-plus-acre facility and was established in 2008. It features a mare/stallion and foaling barn, a veterinary lab and 10 pastures. The facility is home to more than 70 Clydesdales ranging from foals to stallions.
They are now the home of 2 brand new Clydesdale foals (1 male and 1 female) who will be joining the Anheuser-Busch family. You can see them in the Facebook post below.
According to the press release from the ranch, these Clydesdales when born can walk within a few hours of being born, are about 3 feet tall and weigh 150 lbs. Once they are full grown, Clydesdales are around six feet tall and weigh around 2,000 pounds. Adult Clydesdales eat up to 20 quarts of grain, 50 pounds of hay and drink up to 35 gallons of water per day. If any of you saw them at the Missouri State Fair, you know how beautiful these horses are.
Clydesdales go through years of training to become eligible for one of the three traveling teams. You can read a little bit more HERE.
