Clydesdale


Clydesdale
A breed of heavy draft horse developed in Scotland by the farmers of Lanarkshire, through which the River Clyde flows. It was bred to meet the needs of agriculture, commerce for the Lanarkshire coalfields of Lanarkshire and for all types of heavy freight on the streets of Glasgow. The Clydesdale Breeders of the United States was formed in 1879. Although not the most popular work horse in America, the Clydesdale is the best known. It is the breed that pulls the famous Budweiser beer wagon.
