There are very few corporate icons or symbols that are as beloved as Budweiser’s majestic Clydesdale horses. They have been the most recognizable brand ambassadors for more than one hundred years. Even in an era when the company is a global titan in its industry, these massive equines carry the brand message to the whole world.
We just found an incredible video on YouTube of the AB team delivering two tons of purina horse food to a very special ranch. As with every video featuring these horses, you are going to love this clip to tears when you watch it.
Teaming two classic St. Louis brands, Anheuser Busch and Purina, can only mean one thing: Midwestern style love.
This past November, Purina donated two tons of horse feed to Far View Horse Rescue in Colorado, and looked down the street to their neighbors at Anheuser Busch to deliver it for them.
In this amazing video, we get to see the world famous AB clydesdales trot to the rescue as they deliver the much needed feed to the shelter, just in time for winter.
This video has already been viewed more than two hundred and fifty thousand times and has received hundreds of comments from people, saying things like:
