BOONVILLE, Mo. (WFLA) — There’s a brand new resident at the Budweiser Clydesdale Warm Springs Ranch and he’s super cute.
“Mac” is the first foal of 2016. He was born at 1 a.m. on Tuesday at the ranch, which is located in Boonville, Mo. There are more than 160 Clydesdale in the Anheuser-Busch herd, according to a news release.
Mac will live at the ranch and get his training there. The company said his name is in honor of its Clydesdale being “The most macro of all icons.” It’s also a nod to the company’s tagline: “Proudly a macro beer,” according to CNN.
The ranch is open to visitors who can interact with the Clydesdales, some of which have appeared on Budweiser commercials.
The Budweiser Clydesdales have long been associated with Anheuser-Busch brewery. The Clydesdale tradition started in 1933. August A. Busch Jr. and Adolphus Busch gave the horses to their father as a gift to commemorate the repeal of Prohibition.
