Warm Springs Ranch shared a few photos on Facebook showing off Budweiser’s newest Clydesdale foal that was recently born at the ranch, and he’s looking like one happy and healthy horse.
Warm Springs Ranch is located in Boonville, Missouri, and is the main breeding and training facility for the iconic Budweiser Clydesdales.
His name is Eminem and he was born to Marcie and Myles whose names start with an “M” and make the nickname M&M. That’s where they got the idea to name the horse Eminem, but like how the rapper spells it.
Anheuser-Busch announced the birth of Eminem last month, but now that Warm Springs Ranch shared photos, everyone can see him for the first time.
The ranch says the horse will undergo years of training before he will be allowed to try out for the Clydesdales traveling team. When he is full-grown, his back and shoulders will come up to six feet tall and he’ll weigh a hefty 2,000 pounds.
The Clydesdales were first introduced to the American public on April 7, 1933, to celebrate the repeal of Prohibition.
August A. Busch, Jr. got the horses for his dad, August Anheuser Busch, Sr., who took his dad outside the brewery to show him a surprise. His father thought his son was going to buy him a car but instead pulled up with the horses that were pulling a red, white, and gold beer wagon. They have been with the brewing company ever since.
