See Iconic Budweiser Horses

horsesEUGENE, Ore. — The iconic Budweiser horses are here.

The Clydesdale horses you see in the commercials will be appearing at multiple events to celebrate the 81st anniversary of Anheuser-Busch.

The horses were originally used to deliver beer after prohibition. Now three teams travel the country showcasing the horses.

It takes five hours to prep them and one hour alone to hitch them to the 1903 Studebaker wagon.

“They are about six, six and a half feet tall, on average around 18 to 19 hands, about 2,000 pounds. To be a Budweiser Clydesdale, that’s the size. To be the color–the bay color body, the black mane and tail, the white blaze and the four white stockings,” said Zachary Uding, an Anheuser-Busch handler.
