New Baby Clydesdale Is Born Into The Budweiser Family

Budweiser has welcomed a new member to the family.

A baby Clydesdale named Arizona was born Sunday at the Warm Springs Ranch in Boonville, Missouri, just before Budweiser's "Lost Puppy" commercial aired during Super Bowl XLIX. Arizona will join the beer brand's family of beautiful horses.

Staff at Warm Springs, Budweiser's 300-acre breeding farm, took to Facebook to announce the birth and give an update on Arizona's parents.

"Mom and baby are doing well and looking forward to meeting all of her new fans this Spring!" the post read in part.

Fans can see Arizona and the other 100-some Clydesdales during pre-booked tours when Warm Springs reopens for the season in March.

The famous Clydesdales made an appearance in this year's Budweiser Super Bowl commercial, helping out their best puppy friend who goes missing.

Clydesdales have been a part of Budweiser parent company Anheuser-Busch since 1933, when August A. Busch, Jr. and Adolphus Busch III gave their father, brewing magnate August A. Busch, Sr., six of the horses to celebrate the repeal of Prohibition, according to the company's website. The patriarch decided to continue the celebration with horse-drawn beer wagons.
