Clydesdales (the horses) are truly majestic animals...the Kings of All Horses (at least that's what I call them), but you never really see them in motion for more than a few minutes at a time. They are on the parade routes and at Sea World, wanting all of the attention and admiration from the crowd, for just basically being the largest among their own species.
I think I heard once that they actually get to eat oats, soaked in Budweiser...not too shabby, if you're a horse. I prefer nachos with my beer, but have cut back on both.
Despite their "kingly stature", they're slow and have no endurance. They are enormous, wear expensive gear, go short distances and then stand and wait for recognition from the masses. I can actually identify with that.
Here are some Clydesdale in a parade. The video makes my point, but the highlight is the crazy cameraman who did this "Cloverfield"-type filming at the 5 second mark to run ahead of the Clydes. How many people were injured in the making of this movie?
