Watching the new Budweiser ad yesterday during the Superbowl reminded me of these old photos that I took when the Budweiser Clydesdales were in town for a local Air Show at our County Airport.
I had heard that the horses were being housed at the fairgrounds which were just a few blocks from my house, so I called my daughter-in-law and she met me there with the grandkids so that we could all get a close-up look at the Clydesdales and Bud, the Dalmatian.
We watched them get in harness for a little morning exercise.
After being out in the grass they all got their feet washed and a bit of a fluff and buff so that they would be ready for their appearance later in the afternoon in front of the Air Show crowd.
Here is a link to this year's Superbowl commercial.

These photos are great. I missed seeing the Clydesdales Horses in this year's superbowl ads.
Thanks! It is a pretty ad this year.... With a nod to the future.
Ohh! I haven't seen them since i was a little kid. I thought they were as big as Elephants back then! : )
I think they are still as big as elephants! 😉
Almost : )
Thanks for using eSteem!

Great pictures of the animals.... :-)
Thanks! Glad you like them!
Awesome! I went to college in St Louis and we visited Grant's Farm a few times which is where the Clydesdales live when they aren't on tour. They are very impressive animals...and they are named Clyde ;)
I have never been to Grant's Farm although it was always something I meant to do one one of the trips through Saint Louis. They are amazing animals and are very deserving of the Clyde name.
Lauren is so cute😍💕beautiful pictures
Thanks! She was so little then, it makes me smile that you knew it was her!
She's so beautiful. I guess that photo is many years old. It is so beautiful that you have such beautiful memories
Watching them grow up is the best part of grandkids! If the weather cooperates everyone is coming to my house next weekend to bake Valentine cookies! I'm looking forward to it
It makes me so happy that they spend time with you.💕😍 I hope see the pictures of the cookies
The kids all look forward to cookie baking day! I do too!
I'm sure you too. Sure you enjoy baking and spending time together... I think that I should also bake some cookies
Howdy Melinda! oh those are wonderful photos! What great horses they are. Did watch the whole game? Did you care who won?
I did watch the whole game. And really didn't care too much who won but I was happy with the way it turned out. It was kind of a boring game though. Nicely played, just not very excited. How about you? Did it turn out the way you wanted it to? And did you have fun watching the game?
yes! well it was the only game I watched all year so I was starved. lol. I thought every second was fascinating because I'm a fan and I liked that the Patriots won. I know another team should be able to win but when a team is that good and I really love to watch Edelman and Gostkronski or however you pronounce his name and of course Brady is always so cool. they're just great to watch. Mrs. J fell asleep but I thought it was great. lol.
You do have to admire Brady! No one compares! I love all the pageantry and tradition that surrounds the Super Bowl. Some of the commercials for really fun to. And some of them really make me realize how out of touch I am with current culture. I knew that if I would have recognized who some of the people were, that I would have understood the jokes!
haha! exactly Melinda. We sit there and go huh? we don't know the people or don't get the joke in too many of them and that makes us feel out of touch. Not that I'm too concerned! lol.
My daughter commented that on her Facebook page there were a lot of the younger kids who did not get many of the references in the ads at all. She pointed out that some of the references were to things that happened in the 90s and these kids today just didn't have a clue what they were talking about. So it's not just us!
haha! oh ok, then I feel somewhat better! I figured we were WAY out of touch. Well then that's retarded for the advertisers to do those isn't it? I mean to make the ads so ...don't know how to describe them but you'd have to be a media professional to know everyone in all the genres I suspect. And they were paying like what, a few years ago it was 1 million for 30 seconds I think. lol.
Hey do you know anything about how delegations work for the person delegating? I've heard that you earn interest when you do them and others have said you don't earn squat, that you earn more if you just keep your sp in your account.
See beautiful horses with beautiful feather colors. I want to watch horse racing in my place. I often watch a weekend race with my child, because he also likes horses.
Thanks for this @melinda010100
They are lovely hardworking animals! How fun that your son has the opportunity to be near them with you.
Nice! I posted photos of them at The World Clydesdale Show. They sure are beautiful! Thanks for posting.
They are impressive, aren't they? Where is The World Clydesdale show held at?
Originally, they wanted to alternate between Canada and the US. I was at the first one in Carp, Ontario, not sure which year. In 2007, 2011, and 2018, they were in Madison, Wisconsin. My photos were from the one in London, Ontario in 2015. The 2021 show will be held in Brandon, Manitoba. https://www.worldclydeshow.com
I am only 50 miles from Madison and have been unaware of that event! Sounds like fun!
I have 3 posts with draft horses. Here is the World Clydesdale Show.
That is an excellent post! They truly are incredible animals. Only 5000. I had no idea.
If you enjoyed that, I must let you see these too.

These magnificent horses put on such a great display of style and horsepower. Your beautiful grandkids would have loved seeing them getting groomed and also, being up close with the Dalmatian.
Magnificent really is the perfect word for them isn't it? Their size and power is so impressive. It was fun being up close to them
Lovely photos of the horses and your family Melinda. Sounds like a popular event.
It was a one time thing. I'm so glad we got to see them, because I don't think they have been back here since then.
That was very fortuitous Melinda. 😊
