Halters hang from the wall in bundles in the Clydesdale wash room in the main barn on Wednesday at Warm Springs Ranch in Boonville. A major part of a Clydesdale's life at Warm Springs Ranch is regular grooming and handling. Studs receive weekly baths, on average, but grooming activities start early, as the foals' heavy coats are clipped shortly after birth.
