I’ve always been infatuated with draft horses and honestly, do they get any better than the Budweiser Clydesdales? Several years ago when I worked for a local radio station they were at our state fair and I was lucky enough to be able to hold the reins of one during morning exercise. I was in awe. They are beautiful creatures that just make me smile with their gentle natures.
I was surprised to see the beautiful trademark red and white temporary stables set up at the Buffalo Chip Campground when I was there last month for the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. I knew Sturgis was all about horse power, but didn’t expect to see the Clydesdales there!
Kat Metzger is a handler with the Budweiser Clydesdales and she talked to me about their life on the road and some of the requirements to be a Budweiser Clydesdale. She really enjoys her job and all the work that goes into caring for the gentle giants.
