COLUMBIA — In the past month, Anheuser-Busch has moved nearly 100 of its world-famous Clydesdales into a state-of-the-art breeding farm 16 miles west of Columbia.
The elegant, iconic horses are now bred, cared for, groomed and trained on 350 acres of grassy pasture in the rolling hills near Boonville.
“This is a beautiful piece of property that offers privacy for our Clydesdales,” said Jim Poole, general manager of Clydesdale operations for Anheuser-Busch, during a media tour Wednesday. “It’s a nice place for mares to raise their young ones.”
