Horse Power

This afternoon, on the eve of the 10th Annual River City Rod Run, horses of a different breed shared a parking lot with the hot rods and classic cars. The famous Anheuser-Busch Clydesdales arrived in style, three custom tractor/trailers carrying a team of eight horses and all of their regalia, including the big red wagon and trademark dalmation. Each of the horses weighs at least 2,000 lbs. and stands 6 feet tall at the shoulder. A team of six handlers primped and pampered the beasts from head to hoof before the bridles and harnesses were put in place. It took nearly an hour before all eight were hitched to the wagon and ready for their close-up. Over 100 spectators endured the 100-degree weather for the unique opportunity to see the famous four-legged Super Bowl commercial stars.
