Budweiser's famous Clydesdale horses are making appearances in Southwest Florida this week. I went to see them at the Mercato, a shopping center in North Naples.

I went around to the staging area at the back of the center. The horses were led off their trailers, groomed, fitted in their harnesses, and lined up for their procession.
When the horses were lined up and waiting to begin, they twitched and neighed and looked antsy.
I decided to station myself on the less busy service road between the staging area and the street where the horses would parade. Once the procession began, the horses stopped fidgeting and were professionals.
The Dalmatian on the wagon likes the camera.
