        As mechanized farming began replacing the horse the Clydesdale’s population dimin-
ished. Today the
Clydesdale is bred
primarily for show
and is considered a
vulnerable breed.
Clydesdales
weigh between 1800
and 2000 pounds
and measure around
18 hands. A hand
equals 4 inches
measured from the
withers (top of the
shoulder) to the
bottom of the hoof.
One of the horse’s
beautiful characteristic are the long silky hairs, called feathers, covering the hooves and floating in the air as the horse moves. Another charac- teristic are the coat colors, ranging
from tan, through reddish tan, dark brown to almost black. Many have
a blaze of white down the front of their faces. The famous Budweiser Clydesdales are a specific bay color and
all markings are closely matched. Budweiser is very particular that their horses match specific conformation standards.
Covell’s is open Mon- day-Saturday by appoint- ment only. Trail rides at 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., vehicle tour at noon. To book a ride or tour text or call (805) 975-7332. For
 "The rides
are mostly
walking, with
some trotting
and cantering
depending on
ability."
