Have you watched the 2013 Budweiser Super Bowl commercial – The Clydesdales: “Brotherhood?” It’s a tear jerker for all horse lovers and anyone who has experienced the mixed emotions of selling a beloved horse.

Help name the Budweiser Clydesdale foal
Using the hash tag #clydesdales, Budweiser asked Twitter followers of @Budweiserand Facebook fans to help name the foal.
“This newest member of the Budweiser Clydesdale family was 7 days old on the day this part of the Super Bowl commercial was filmed,” said Jeff Knapper, general manager of Clydesdale operations. “A star was truly born on Jan. 16.”
But the young foal is not the only horse in the Budweiser Clydesdale ad; an 8-month-old, a 2-year-old, and a team of eight Clydesdale horses are featured in the “Brotherhood.”
According to Budweiser, the Super Bowl commercial chronicles the bond between a Clydesdale foal and his trainer.
