Clydesdales, a corporate symbol of Budweiser beer, are often seen tied together in even numbers pulling the red Budweiser wagon. Clydesdales are native to Scotland and are named after the Clyde Valley and the River Clyde.

“The combined weight of the cart and horses is approximately 12 tonnes and they are truly a sight to behold. The team is on the road 300 days a year and we salute these gentle giants and the excellent crew who look after them,” says the Devon. Horse Show reports this on its site.
