A Missouri Star is Born

How exciting to wake up this morning and see this!

Clydesdale star of Super Bowl ad is newborn foal

The Associated Press

BOONVILLE, Mo. — For decades, Anheuser-Busch has used its famous Clydesdales in Super Bowl ads for Budweiser. The latest star is barely two weeks old.

A foal born Jan. 16 at Anheuser-Busch's Warm Springs Ranch near the mid-Missouri town of Boonville is featured in an ad that will appear in Sunday's game between the NFC champion San Francisco 49ers and AFC champion Baltimore Ravens.

The 60-second ad chronicles the bond a Clydesdale foal shares with his trainer. The foal was just a week old when the ad was filmed.

A newborn foal, born in Booneville, Missouri is

going to be featured in the Super Bowl commercial!

Warning, it’s a tear-jerker!


  1. I love seeing the Clydesdales' ads whether it's at Christmas or the Super Bowl. The CBS special about the greatest Super Bowl ads of all times had an ad with these gentle giants as voted the top ad of all time. Beat out the Coca Cola one with Mean Joe Green.
    The winner was the one with the 'Dale not being picked for the team so the Dalamation took over a training regime to rival Rocky Balboa's.
    Although I don't drink their beer, I am glad they keep these wonderful horses and spotlight them in their ads.


  2. I couldn't get the first video to load, but the second one did bring a lump to my throat. Thanks for sharing!
    Hugs :)

  3. What is in the water where you MO girls live???
    I miss hearing from you and I miss hearing how my Sheri is.
    I think MOWaterWorks is drugging you girls and making you sleep.
