Warm Springs Ranch is a facility in Boonville, Missouri, that trains and breeds the Clydesdales in the ads of Budweiser. Recently, the ranch welcomed the first foal born for this year and it was a beautiful baby girl, who they named Carly.
A video of Carly walking her very first steps by staying close to her mother was posted on the ranch’s Facebook page.
Amazingly, starting March 23, the 300-acre ranch will be open to the public. Then, anyone can visit the ranch to see how the Clydesdales are bred, raised, trained and cared for.
Every year, around a couple of dozens of foals, are born in the ranch. Now, as people take their guided walking tour through the property, they can reach up- close to the Clydesdales and interact with them personally.
The ranch, is home to more than 70 Clydesdales, including foals and stallions, has a stallion and foal barn, veterinary lab, ten pastures, and customized, walk-in shelters. It was established in 2008.
Nevertheless, not every Clydesdale is qualified enough to be starring in the famous Budweiser ads. According to Warm Springs Ranch website, the Clydesdales “must stand six feet tall, they must be geldings and at least four years old, they must have a bay coat, four white stockings, a blaze of white on the face, a black mane and a black tail, and they must weigh between 1,800 and 2,300 pounds.”
