Classic Clydes

The Clydesdale is a Scottish breed of draft horse. It is named for its area of origin, the Clydesdale or valley of the River Clyde, much of which is within the county of Lanarkshire. It is one of the largest draft horses in the world, which was often used for heavy hauling of freight, some have been used as drum horses by the Household Cavalry, while in the United States the Anheuser-Busch brewery uses a matched team of eight for publicity.
Clydesdales are usually bay in color, but black, grey, and chestnut also occur. Most have white markings, including white on the face, feet, and legs, and occasional body spotting (generally on the lower belly). They also have extensive feathering on their lower legs.

In April 2011, after the 2.21 update, Amaretto gave us the Classic Clydesdale coat. You could have a chance at one of these exciting Non-Starter coated Classic Clydesdales by breeding any horse with a starter horse or by breeding together two starter horses. These coats CAN be passed on, even though they were put “Out-to-Pasture” with the 4.0 horse update. They won’t be dropped from new LEs, Gachas, or new starters, but can still be bred from existing lines with Clydesdale in the background. Maybe your next project will include a Clydesdale. One long ago breeder even bred a set of 8 perfectly matched brown Clydes to pull her Budweiser wagon!

Happy Breeding!
