Budweiser’s Clydesdale foal is named Hope

Anheuser-Busch said Tuesday that its contest to find a name for a foal born Jan. 16 at the company’s Clydesdale ranch in mid-Missouri generated more than 60,000 tweets, Facebook comments and other messages.

The foal now weighs 200 pounds and will weigh roughly 2,000 pounds when she is grown, said John Soto, supervisor of Warm Springs Ranch, where Anheuser-Busch raises Clydesdales near Boonville, Mo.

Hope was the second Clydesdale born at Warm Springs Ranch this year. Soto said a male horse was born 36 hours earlier. He has been named Stan, in honor of St. Louis Cardinals great Stan “The Man” Musial, who died last month at age 92.

Two other Clydesdales have since been born at the ranch, and two more are due any day now, Soto said. More than 30 Clydesdales are expected to be born in 2013.

The Clydesdales have been associated with Budweiser since 1933. The company introduced them to celebrate the repeal of Prohibition for beer.
