On July 4th, my family and I went to the Breckenridge Parade. I took the camera (of course) and started to take some pictures. As I was snapping photos of the 50 mile bike race starting line, I noticed this in the blurred background.
I zoomed in a little closer and saw the eight Clydesdale horses getting tacked up. They were going to be in the parade! The actual Budweiser Clydesdale's!
Once the bike race was underway, the parade started. The Clydesdale's started off.
As it turns out, they were in Breckenridge all weekend. You could even pet them!
They were so relaxed that one decided to lie down!
It was a lot of fun to see them. It was like meeting a bunch of actors.
So, I also mentioned a new model in the title.....didn't I?
After the parade, my family and I made our way down to the toy store. I walked in and saw this:
I ended up coming "home" with this:
This Big Chex to Cash has one of the best paint jobs I have ever seen on this model. That would be the reason why I paid twelve dollars more for him than I normally would have at the places I usually shop for Breyer horses.
Here are some more pictures of him:
I will have good quality photos up soon. "Chexy" (I haven't found a good name for him yet...I might name him James Blonde..but that is undecided) is quite excited to meet Heza Copper Cowboy who looks very much like him. ;)
