 Who knows why?  

Today the Budweiser Clydesdale horses came to Salado.  March 2nd, Texas Independence Day.  Of all the towns in Texas, why Salado?  I betcha somebody local has some influence.

It was great.  They arrived and did a "parade" down main street - U turn and back up main to their starting point.   8 beautiful Clydesdales pulling the big  Budweiser wagon - 2 drivers dressed in Green  - and a black and white dalmatian riding on the wagon seat alongside the drivers.

After the parade, the group stayed for over an half hour - close to an hour.  The crowd took pictures and talked to the handlers.  It was a good time had by all.

Then, we stood and watched as they unhooked the horses and led them into the trailers.  I'd guess there were at least a dozen workers.  They had a process.  Do this. Do that.  Do this.  Everyone had a special job to do.  It was fun to watch the organization.  

I would hope for you to be a part of this festival someday.  Watch for when the horses are coming to your town/area,  Get there early and enjoy the show.  

They are such beautiful animals.
