Budweiser Clydesdale Rescued From Slaughter Auction

Duke

During the 2016 Superbowl between the Panthers and Broncos, one of the most looked for commercials is the Budweiser Clydesdale horses.  During years past the Clydesdales have been featured in commercials that touched our hearts, inspired us with the power of their strength, and taught us about love.

During the celebrations and parties, it’s important to remember that slaughter is no respecter of horse breeding or history.   Less than a year ago, Duke was rescued at the New Holland horse slaughter auction.  Duke started life as a well loved horse at the Busch Gardens in Williamsburg.  He was sold with a first right of refusal, but his new owners disappeared and his location was unknown until he was rescued at the slaughter auction.  No matter how strong a contract is written, if the new owners violate the contract, the horse is always the one to suffer.
