Budweiser Clydesdales visit Pocatello

Saturday July 14, 2018

First there was the need to find parking. I’ve not seen so little parking near the farmers market.  I had to park 5 blocks away. Then there was the waiting.

Then the event started, and poof it was over_JLS5051

But HORSES! I have loved the Budweiser Clydesdales for years.

I was using the wrong lens. I had brought the one at rodeos, but it was too much telephoto for the job at hand. And I didn’t have the smaller lens in my pocket. Still I made it work in the parking lot where the Clydesdales were posing.

Poor bored horses. _JLS5113

I love them so much I own a book: “All the King’s Horses: The Story of the Budweiser Clydesdales” by Price and Coleman 1983

These are such large and lovely animals

  1. Of course I had no idea you were going to send these yesterday while I was cooking. In my mind I was thinking, ” I wonder if there is a place where you can find jokes about horses ‘so why the long face?'” and horses kept going merry go around in my mind. I love them too, when they used to come to town we would hurry not to miss out! Thanks for these, they are wonderful! So beautiful, stately, powerful.

    The DVD came it is remarkable! Thank you so much! Very big hug. Love you, Corinne
