About the Clydesdale Horse
It took a century for the Scottish to breed the Clydesdale into a workhorse so perfect it changed the course of history. In 1911 one highly prized stallion sold for the equivalent today of one million pounds (2 million Canadian dollars) – a record that is still unbroken.
Clydesdale horses were so valuable thousands were exported from Scotland to countries around the world including Australia, Russia, the United States and Canada. These extraordinary horses drove the agricultural and industrial revolutions, fought in the First World War and influenced the design of horse-powered machinery and vehicles.
In the United States they became famous as the Budweiser horses. In Canada they helped open up the Prairies and in the United Kingdom they became a royal horse.
Here on the farm Muhlengut Voldagsen Ivy, Terrytime Bacardi´s Eve and Terrytime Excel´s Cassandra build the foundation for our stud. We will be starting to breed soon.
