Vacations are a time to relax and what better way to get in the mood than with a tasty beer?

That's the treat that Monty, Max and Prince, three brewery horses in Wiltshire, Great Britain, enjoyed before going off on their annual two-week vacation.

The three horses are known collectively as the Wadworth Brewery Shire Horses, and are the British equivalent to the Clydesdale horses made famous by Budweiser.

They are among the last remaining working shires working in the UK brewing industry and work 50 weeks of the year delivering beer to pubs around the Wadworth Brewery in Devizes, Wiltshire.

Every August, the horses get a chance to spend two weeks away from "the man," romping in the fields, chewing on some grass and doing other horse-like activities.

But before the horses go off on their own, they are traditionally each given a pint (or two) to enjoy before being led down the main road into a field where they are expected to show their delight at being set free, the Wiltshire Times reported.
