Artist's Description

Featured in Simply Horses February 23, 2010

This is a picture of Mr. George Campbell teaching these young Clydesdale Colts the art of sleigh pulling. We came across him while driving and when we stopped and asked his permission to photograph both he and the colts, he graciously gave it. This pair backed up, stopped when asked and stood quietly so I could photograph them. Of course I was making many appreciative noises and comments and they were soaking the praise right up. As you can see they were quite beautiful and a pleasure to watch. Taken North of Boyle, Alberta, Canada

The Clydesdale is a breed of draft horse derived from the farm horses of Clydesdale, Scotland, and named after that region. Thought to be over 300 years old, the breed was extensively used for pulling heavy loads in rural, industrial and urban settings, their common use extending into the 1960s when they were still a familiar sight pulling the carts of milk and vegetable vendors.

They have been exported in the Commonwealth and United States where they are famous for their use as the mascot of various beer brands, including Anheuser-Busch’s Budweiser brand, Carlton & United Beverages and several others.

At one time there were at least 140,000 Clydesdales known in Scotland; by 1949 just 80 animals were licensed in England and by 1975 the Rare Breeds Survival Trust had listed the breed as “vulnerable”. Clydesdales have since seen resurgence in popularity and population, resulting in the breed’s status being reclassified favorably as “at risk” with an estimated global population of just 5,000 individuals. Clydesdales are now most numerous in the United States where recently over 600 foals are reportedly born each year.

Today, the Clydesdale’s most significant presence is in exhibition and parades
