ELKHORN, Neb. — The Budweiser Clydesdales have arrived in the Omaha-area.

Ten horses are visiting for the next few days.

"They're just like any horse. They'll have their days. But, for the most part, these guys are pretty gentle," David West, Clydesdale handler said.

The Clydesdales come from a breeding farm located in Boonville, Mo.

The average Clydesdale weighs roughly 2,000 pounds and is about 19 hands tall.

On Saturday, they'll make a special appearance out at Horseman's Park for the start of the racing season.

The Clydesdales will hit the track for about twenty minutes starting at 3 p.m.

Then, members of the public can get pictures with the horses in the west parking lot until 5 p.m.

Saturday's event is $5 for adults and kids 17 and under get in free.
