The adorable foal set to

This year´s Budweiser Super Bowl ad isn´t funny or sexy, but you just might shed a tear. For decades, Anheuser-Busch has used its famous Clydesdales in Super Bowl ads for Budweiser. Instead of a herd of majestic hoof-stomping steeds thundering across a valley floor, this year´s 60-second ad centers on the bond an adorable Clydesdale foal shares with his trainer. The latest star is barely two weeks old. A foal born January 16 at Anheuser-Busch´s Warm Springs Ranch near the mid-Missouri town of Boonville is featured in an ad that will appear in Sunday´s game

No sex, boobs, sleazy innuendos, smart ass kids with dumb parents, over eating taco chips or boozing it up. Just one of God´s beautiful creatures and human´s who appreciate his handy work . . . sounds like a winner to me. I would love to be able to give that cute baby a big hug.

I love these horses. I´m not a sappy person but that ad does bring a tear to my eye. A few weeks ago, a team of the Clydesdales were staying near here. I went there and got to practically snuggle one of them. They are just majestic and beautiful.

Oh how I love horses! I even love the smell of horses. There´s an aroma that speaks of earth and sweat and pure muscle that is beautifuol in itself.

Me too, #6. My family has kept horses(not Clydesdales) for four generations that I can count. One of my favorite places to be is in my tack room where the sweat soaked saddles and bridles hang to dry out when not being used. "Sweat soaked leather" sounds like hell but smells like heaven.

This commercial made me cry, because its real.
When our horse sees my car, she runs to the gate just like a puppy. All of the horses have different personalities and most are sweet as can be.

I grew up with horses, and it´s been many years since I was near or in a stable, but were I blind folded and led into one, I would immediately recognize that aroma...the drying leather, the horse blankets, the smell of leather soap.......I know there are horses in heaven....I have been told. Can´t wait to ride Stormy again...or Topsey....or Sally....or Buttermilk. Pretty sure Calico and Lobo didn´t make though. ;)

What a wonderful commercial! How very refreshing. I got the chills from very beginning of it. I too have always loved horses. I love their noses. They feel like velvet. Dittos on the trainer. He´s not too bad either! Many years ago we went to St. Louis to see the Clydesdales. They were such beautiful, majestic animals. I have never forgotten it.

Seems as if Ldotters are quite a horsy family! I went out to see my guy today and he ran right in to say hi! Yes, the smell is injected into us as soon as we smell it the first time, and you never ever forget it and the peace it brings you because it will course through your veins forever. Of COURSE I loved the commercial!

We had horses growing up too. So right, you never forget the smell, the velvet nose, so soft. The big beautiful eyes and the loyalty. I have yet to experience a sensation as exhilarating as riding a horse at a full run. It is like nothing else.

I have not ridden or been around horses in many years and I miss them immensely. My husband has grown to love them from a distance and we hope someday to have one. Don´t know if that dream will ever come true now, the future is so dark. Thanks OP for posting, very nice.

I´m a long haul truck driver, my second career. For years, I´ve said that I´d drive for free for Budweiser for one year if they would reimburse my expenses, if I could pull one of their horse vans. That´s a serious statement that I´d be willing to honor just for the experience and the opportunity to be closely involved with the Clydesdales.

We lived in the St. Louis area for a lifetime and had the opportunity to visit these beautiful horses at the brewery and at the farm. And there was nothing more spectacular than on the first day of baseball season to see Gussie Busch taking the team and wagon around Busch Stadium while the crowd went nuts!

This ad is just precious. DH said he saw on Fox Business channel last night that the ad made for Super Bowl in 2002 (the horses bowing) was the #1 Super Bowl ad of all time and that A-B only showed it the one time at the game. They are truly a treasure. Did you see in the article there are 40 babies on the way? How exciting.

One more thing: There is a Busch farm in southwest St. Louis with a street running alongside one of the fields where you could see the horses grazing. Some years ago, someone shot one (or more) of the horses. I don´t remember the story, it´s been too long ago. I´ve been gone from there for too long, but it might be Laclede Station Road. Can you imagine the hatefulness in a heart that would shoot one of these beauties?

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

TOPEKA, Kan. — If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was

Stuart Rothenberg reports in his Roll Call blog: The 30-second spot, titled “Meddling,” accuses Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., of “trying to fool Republican voters, meddling in our primary to get a weak opponent for Kay Hagan.” (Video) The North Carolina Senate race is rated Toss-up/Tilt Democrat by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call, in part, because of uncertainty in the GOP primary.

Associated Press: Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery."

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
