The horses will lead the team at Eagle Walk and will be available for photos
STATESBORO- The famous Budweiser Clydesdales, an Anheuser-Busch symbol of quality and tradition since 1933, are set to make several appearances in the
area on November 19, including one at Paulson Stadium in conjunction with Saturday’s Eagle Walk.
The eight-horse hitch will be hitched and hitched to the famous red beer wagon at the university bookstore on November 19 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. The “Gentle Giants,” as they are often called, will participate in Football South’s Georgia Eagle Walk ahead of their home football game against Marshall. The Clydesdales’ route will begin at the bookstore, continue through the PAC and RAC tailgates and end by leading the Georgia Southern football team to Eagle Walk outside Paulson Stadium. The Eagle Walk starts at 3:45 p.m.
The hitching ceremony is open to the public and fans are encouraged to attend.
The appearance of the Clydesdales in Statesboro is one of hundreds made each year by Travel Issues. Scottish Canadians brought the first Clydesdales to America in the mid-1800s. Today, giant draft horses are used primarily for herding and show.
Horses chosen for the Budweiser Clydesdale hitch must be at least three years old, stand approximately 18 hands – or six feet – at the shoulder, weigh an average of 2,000 pounds, must be bay in color, have four white legs and a blaze of white on the face and black mane and tail. A gentle temperament is very important as carriage horses encounter millions of people each year. A single Clydesdale carriage horse will consume up to 20-25 gallons of feed, 40-50 pounds of hay, and 30 gallons of water per day.
Every snag travels with a Dalmatian. In the early days of brewing, Dalmatians were bred and trained to protect horses and guard the cart when the driver came inside to make deliveries.
Budweiser Clydesdales can be seen at Anheuser-Busch breweries in St. Louis, Mo.; Merrimack, NH; and ft. Collins, Colorado. They can also be seen at Grant’s Farm in St. Louis and at Warm Springs Ranch, Clydesdale’s 300+ acre ranch located near Boonville, Mo.
