About Clydesdale Horses
Clydesdales are draft horses that are often very tall, averaging between 16-18 hands and sometimes taller than that and weighing about a ton. In modern times, the breed has gotten a lot of its fame for being used in teams at parades to pull carriages and also in commercials as the Budweiser horses. In the past, they were often used to plow fields for agriculture or to haul goods long distances. Clydesdales are often bay in color and have white markings or socks on their feet and often a blaze on their nose.
