600 Clydesdales Trample Wisconsin College Town
Not trample, exactly, but they are sure to give it a good stomp with those Scotch bottom shoes.
Yesterday was the start of the World Clydesdale Show at the Alliant Center in Madison, Wisconsin. This is the first time the show has been held in the USA. I was quite taken with this photo of one of the Budweiser Clydesdales from Thursday's Capitol Times.
Sadly, the show has already been scarred by the tragic deaths of four members of a showing family who had camped in a horse trailer to be near their horses and died of carbon monoxide poisoning caused by an unventilated space heater.
