Every year, the American brewing company, Anheuser-Busch, exhibits its Clydesdales at Mount Snow in southern Vermont. It is said to be the company's way of showing its appreciation for its Budweiser beer sales at the resort.
The Budweiser Clydesdales are the company's most recognizable mascots. Anheuser-Busch has approximately 250 Clydesdales - one of the largest herds of Clydedales in the world. Some of these are housed on a farm in Merrimack, NH.
The Mount Snow event usually includes a four horse team and carriage, but in 2008, icy road conditions prevented the huge Budweiser trucks from leaving their local stabling area and putting on a full display. Nevertheles, skiers at Mount Snow got to see two magnificient animals. As you can see, everyone loves to have their picture taken with a Clydesdale!
