From its namesake in Scotland, the Clydesdale is a breed of draft horses, able to pull loads and often seen today in parades. Used in pulling timber from forests, these horses are currently familiar as mascots of beverage companies. Known for being well-built, Clydesdales generally stand sixteen or seventeen hands high but have been measured at twenty. At birth, foals weigh around two hundred pounds, gaining almost five pounds per day in its first months! To ensure nutrition and health, a mother mare will produce almost sixty pounds of milk per day for her foal. Although sizeable, this breed possesses marked grace and docility.
