Puppy Love and Horses

Puppy Love and Horses

Who doesn’t love puppies and horses?

Who doesn’t love puppies and horses? Growing up with Labrador Retrievers and Quarter horses, I know a thing or two about the spell dogs and horses cast on young girls. Girlfriends and boyfriends may come and go, but your dog and your horse will always be your first love.

So of course, my eyes welled up like a baby when I watched Puppy Love the 2014 Budweiser Super Bowl video. Really – who isn’t a sucker for a puppy and a Clydesdale horse – the gentle giant of the equestrian world?

As a horse lover, I’ve written about the Budweiser Clydesdale horses on multiple occasions, including the 2013 “Brotherhood” ad campaign and the use of social media to name the newest Clydesdale foal.

Did you know that you are able to visit the Budweiser Clydesdale horse facility and tour Warm Springs Ranch in Missouri by wagon?
I wonder if they will swap out the Dalmatian breed for a Labrador Retriever to accompany the wagon driver on the ranch tours?

Do horses sell beer?

Horses don’t sell beer. People sell beer. But I have to admit that I associate positive feelings with the Budweiser Super Bowl advertisements and now I want to visit Warm Springs Ranch.

“The Budweiser Clydesdales are an icon of the brand and have become an icon of the Super Bowl as well,” said Brian Perkins, vice president, Budweiser. “These majestic horses represent the values of the brand and universal values of trust, quality and nobility that appeal to audiences of all ages.”

The Budweiser Clydesdales take a staring role in “Puppy Love,” which continues the story of 2013’s  “Brotherhood” spot and focuses on the connections animals share with one another at Warm Springs Ranch, Budweiser’s Clydesdale breeding ranch.

The ad features Don Jeanes  as Budweiser Clydesdale trainer and  a 10-week old yellow Labrador Retriever puppy that forges a bond with the Clydesdales and ends up winning a place on the ranch team. Afterall, every proper horse ranch has to have a barn dog to complete the package.

    I think the ad is very well done – I love when the horses surround the car to get their friend back.
