There is a joke in the horse world ‘There are two things horses are scared of, things that move and things that don’t’. That having been said to be a Budweiser Clydesdale, one has to train these guys to not be scared of the world and some get to learn a whole lot more. After all those breathtaking Clydesdale commercials don't make themselves.
From dogs dressed as Darth Vaderto Elvis kitties, we can’t stop stuffing our four-legged friends into Halloween attire each October. Dog and cat costume parades are more popular than ever, and everyone from major pet supply companies like Petco to mom-and-pop Etsy dealers make a mint on adorable animal outfits. (Our pets, on the other hand, become more indignant with each passing fall).

Frankly, it makes the Bronx Zoo Cobra meme look like Stephen Hawking.
What's the best part of the Kentucky Derby? The hats? The horse racing? The glasses filled with cold, cold whiskey? We couldn't decide, so we put some hats on some horses to help us figure it out. It didn't help. We'll make up our mind tomorrow when the race is over.
