THE CLYDESDALES
ARE IN TOWN

If you're in mind
to buy a Clydesdale horse,
St. Louis is the place to be 
this weekend.

Customers from around the world
are here for the
National Clydesdale Auction,
and will spend between $5,000
and $70,000 per horse
for these gentle giants,
for riding, pulling, breeding or working.
 (160 horses are up for auction.)

Clydesdales were originally bred in
Clydesdale, Scotland
and are known for their strength
and the long hair covering their ankles

. . . and for pulling the famous
     Budweiser beer wagon!

  2. Le monde des chevaux est fascinant. D'abord parce que les chevaux sont de très beaux animaux, souvent impressionnants pour nous. Ensuite, parce que les personnes qui les élèvent et les soignent sont des gens passionnés et passionnants. Enfin, tout leur équipement nous montre un savoir-faire très ancien aux mains des maîtres-ouvriers.
    Tes photos sont magnifiques.
    Amitiés.
