Budweiser Hitch Rides Into Town

A well known American symbol made at stop in the Brazos Valley. On Friday the Anheuser-Busch Clydesdales spent the afternoon at Post Oak Mall.

Residents had the opportunity to see and have photos taken with the world-famous horses.

Friday was the only time the icons would be in town.

Clydesdales are distinct for their cow hocks, the long hair around their feet.

The horses have been the ambassadors of Anheuser-Bush since 1933. It was back then that a team of Clydesdales was given by Augustus A. Busch Jr. to his father as a gift. According to the company, Prohibition had just been repealed. To commemorate the event, the hitch ran through St. Louis, carrying with it the first case of post-Prohibition beer.
