The newest member of the Budweiser Clydesdale family was born on September 12, and the foal was named after “a nearby baseball legend.”
According to a news release from Anheuser Busch , the newest foal was named Moose. The news release didn't state outright who the foal's namesake is, saying the horse was named "after a nearby baseball legend."
Moose will reside at Warm Springs Ranch in Boonville, Mo., while he “learns the ropes of being a Budweiser Clydesdale,” the news release said.
The Budweiser Clydesdales made their first-ever appearance on April 7, 1933 as a gift from August A. Busch, Jr. and Adolphus Busch to their father in celebration of the repeal of Prohibition.
