PG...they are a bunch of boneheads!
I've enjoyed the pictures of these gorgeous animals, and also the history. Thanks Laura.PG I don't know about the selling of the company and how it will affect the horses.
How would you feel being the last August Anheuser Busch V to loose the company? He should be shot. We lost a great family business another one to go down the tubes for money.
The Busch Clydesdales were first introduced to the public on April 7, 1933, to celebrate the repeal of Prohibition. August A. Busch, Jr. presented the hitch as a gift to his father, August Anheuser Busch, Sr., who was guided outside the brewery by the ruse of being told his son had purchased him a new car, but instead was greeted by the horses, pulling a red, white and gold beer wagon. The hitch proceeded to carry the first case of post-Prohibition beer from the St. Louis brewery in a special journey down Pestalozzi Street in St. Louis.
