Temporarily, anyway. At least once per year, the Budweiser Clydesdales stop over at Gary and Donna Stegman’s Poplar Place Farm in Hamilton, Georgia, to stay while they perform shows in the area.
Marjolein Geven, trainer at the facility with her husband Werner, snapped some photos of the Clydesdales during a recent ride.
“It is amazing to see how well they are taken care of,” Marjolein said. “They are super clean, and their trucks are spic and span. All their buckets, blankets and halters are matching red. (Our dog) Rocky had a blast playing with their dog Brewer.”
It’s especially nice to see the Clydesdales happy on tour considering the recent upheaval following rumors that Anheuser-Bush would retire the gentle giants.
The Clydesdales are icons that represent much more than just an adult beverage. They are a vision for patriotism, strength, grace, devotion to community and more. For the Poplar Place staff and students, “To have them at the farm in December really brings the spirit of Christmas.”
