The Budweiser Horses came to Cape Cod this week! If you have ever seen a Clydesdale (or had a Bud) you would know how exciting this was! Clydesdales are HUGE horses and are beautiful, too. We went to see them in Hyannis in the KMart parking lot where they were under a viewing tent for a few days. They had just fed the horses, so we got the ass view while the people that fed them got the pretty head view. Nothing like 8 asses staring at you.
Fast forward to Saturday when they were scheduled to parade down Chatham's mainstreet. We went and saw them getting lined up in front of the Bud carriage. This took F-O-R-E-V-E-R, by the way. But it was interesting to see how patient the horses were getting all geared up. (More patient than I ever would have been!)
Here are the first 2 of the 8.
Is this not a beautiful horse?!
2 more added on....The garb they were wearing was quite fancy and I think the horses knew how great they looked!
Their hooves were gigantic!
Here they are coming down Main Street in Chatham. Very impressive and the crowd was enormous! You would have thought the Jonas Brothers or Brad Pitt or Tom Brady was coming to town!
Sadly enough, there was no Budweiser thrown off the side of the cart to the parched fans waving.
There was, however, the infamous Dalmation sititng right up top with the drivers!
