Mitch visits the Express Clydesdales
YUKON, Okla. (KOKH) —
Clydesdales are known for their size... big, powerful, refined draft horses named after and imported from, Clydesdale, Scotland. They were bred to work. Today, the Express Clydesdales can be seen performing at various shows and events, pulling a magnificent stage coach in all their majesty.
After almost two months, the newest addition to the Express Clydesdales of Express Employment Professionals is ready for a name that will be chosen online by fans.
The foal is one of two rare black-and-white Clydesdale babies born this spring at the barn in Yukon, Oklahoma, as part of a breeding program that began in 2015 with the birth of three foals. He was born on March 16 and weighed 122 pounds. The other new addition is a filly named Jewel. When fully grown, the two could stand more than 8 feet high each and weigh more than 2,000 pounds. They currently drink 50 pounds of milk daily.
The new foal can be seen at the Express Clydesdales Welcome Center from Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. The Express Clydesdales Welcome Center is located at 12701 W. Wilshire Blvd in Yukon.
