Budweiser Clydesdales welcome new members to the herd
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KAKE) — Anheuser-Busch announced the birth of two new Budweiser Clydesdale foals at Warm Springs Ranch in Missouri.
A colt and filly were recently born at the breeding and training facility for the Budweiser Clydesdales in Boonville, KMBC reports.
"This is just the beginning of an incredible journey for these two Clydesdales," Amy Trout, herd supervisor at the ranch, said in a news release. "We are open to the public, and we'd love for guests to stop by for a visit to see these two up close."
Clydesdale foals stand about 3 feet tall and weigh roughly 150 pounds at birth. Adults are usually about 6 feet tall at their withers and weigh around 2,000 pounds. Warm Springs Ranch said the horses will eat up to 20 quarts of grain and 50 pounds of hay and drink up to 35 gallons of water every day.
Clydesdales go through years of training to become eligible for one of the three traveling teams.
Tours of Warm Springs Ranch are available and open to the public. Tickets are available here.
Warm Springs Ranch is over 300 acres and was established in 2008. It's home to more than 70 Clydesdales ranging from foals to stallions.
