Wordless Wednesday: Equine-azzi in Punta Gorda for Budweiser Clydesdales
For more than 75 years, majestic Budweiser Clydesdales have been the symbol of Anheuser-Busch and today (March 7, 2012) two of the 10-member team made an appearance in Punta Gorda, Fla. Between noon and 2 p.m., the horses were available for photos and petting, although I did see people kissing one. I didn’t get close enough to pet one but did snap a few photos. There were a LOT of equine-azzi out there. (Ya know, people crowding around to take photos.)
Growing up, one of my prized souvenirs from Busch Gardens was a plastic Clydesdale. I wonder where it is.
Enjoy these photos along with a few nuggets of Budweiser Clydesdales trivia.
Why were the Budweiser Clydesdales in town? Several hitches travel the country most of the year and come winter, why not spend the winter in Florida? Visit their website to see when you can get up close and personal with a famous equine.
