I live near Budweiser..you got a boy with some really awesome breeding lines!! sad that they (Budweiser) reject a Clyde unless they have perfect markings! those 8 horse hitches have to be exact! ! of their drivers lives just down the road from me & I know 1 of their trainers. Keep up the great work with this guy..it will be very worth it!!

He paniced once and took off in the yard, but only ran a few feet before he stopped and waited for me
Then we had our first real grooming session. I showed him the brush once before, but this was the first time he had his whole body brushed. We also were able to cut out the giant snag(guinea pig sized) in his mane, apply MTG and detangle by hand most of the big knots.
We're gonna need PHOTOS!!
