As a dutiful graduate of USPC, I was concerned that the stall bars were too far apart. Possible hoof trap?

Not these hooves.

As I get older, I am less and less amused by alcohol as an activity, as a source of comedy, or as a social event [Aftermath: PSA]. Therefore, I was ambivalent about this post. On one hand, free advertising for a beer company. On the other hand, Clydesdales! Apparently, my principles crumble in the presence of a pretty face.

  1. Photos: Thank you.

    Short tail: I heard part of an answer that had to do with the tail getting in the way of the horse behind. I have to wonder if fashion/tradition plays a part. That’s not a question that Budweiser PR is going to answer.

  2. While we are on the dark side of the Clydes, what happens to the foals they breed who do not have the correct markings? The spiel says they have other jobs. Black helicopters on the Internet disagree. Anyone?
