Baby Budweiser Clydesdale - be still my heart

I have to confess - hanging out with Clydesdales is on my bucket list. It's a wish that goes back to the best of times with my dad (who passed away when I was 6)- we both loved horses, especially the majestic Clydesdales. I'll probably melt into a puddle of tears the first time I'm around them.

There's a new Budweiser foal, born January 16th, who will make his debut in a Bud ad during this weekend's Super Bowl - and he doesn't have a name yet! You can submit your suggestion on the Bud facebook page or via twitter.

Isn't he beautiful? All the Clydesdales in the hitch are males.

I'd like to submit the name "Jim" in honor of the memory of my dad, but I think "Wally" might be better. Thoughts?

What does it take to be a Clydesdale?

  • Must be at least 6 feet tall
  • 4 years old
  • 1,800 to 2,300 pounds
  • four white stockings
  • black mane, black tail and blaze of white on the forehead
