gentle giants.

over the weekend the budweiser clydesdales were in town.
there were so many people there, you would've thought they were giving out freebies or something.
i don't think i've ever seen so many people come out for an event like this. EVER!
it was a HOT sunny day....which resulted in a horrid sunburn.  it is still april right?

there were 8 horses all together.
 to be considered, they have to be at least 6 ft tall at the shoulders and weigh 2000 pounds!
they are HUGE!
they unloaded them one at a time while they put all the halters and reins on.
check out those feet!
they seem to be very used to photo sessions...they were hamming it up for the crowd.
hitchin them up to the wagon.
they had a question and answer session then they paraded them down main street with a police escort.
eeegads!  i just noticed in the background of the picture that gas is up to $3.52 a gallon!  maybe i should get a horse.
 that dalmation has a pretty cush job.
you could almost hear the dog saying "yep, i have totally have it made!"
 the wagon even played the budweiser jingle as it drove past us.
 see the little bows around their braided and bunned tales?  that made me laugh.
this was the first time i had ever seen the clydesdales...i'm glad we went.
they are beautiful!
and they really are gentle giants.
they are on a should check to see if they're coming to a town near you.  it's totally worth it.


  1. You made me laugh with your comment about gas and the dalmation! Great pics!

  2. I had no idea! I'm so not with it.

    Your photos are great!

  3. I saw them when i was in florida, cant remember which theme park though, hmm it was either busch gardens or sea world.

    Also you think $3.52 a gallon is bad, in the UK a gallon would cost us $15 !

    3.52 is super cheap! :o)

  4. Geo is right - gas in the US is super cheap compared to the rest of the world!

    I love the "feet" pic - I can totally see some boots inspired from it.


i heart comments!!
