OK old farts, I'm sure you know the answer to this:

What is horse sense?

 Sense enough to not drink budweiser , which is what makes then sweet and gentle .

That's it?  Not cause they're all on the same team?  Not cause they all pull together?  Not cause they have equine-in-me?

Great documentary about a gentle horse:

The reason they have the horses is so there is something to put in the bottles.

True story about those Clydesdales @ the brewery in St. Louie:

I learned of the Guzzi brand/bought my first red/white Eldo when I moved to St. Louis in '89. It was languishing in the basement of the house I was renting. But I had a habit when I was younger of exploring my new work location by bicycle, so I headed out one Sunday from U-City to downtown on my bike, and wandered to the A-B brewery. It was dead quiet with nobody on the streets (probably a bazillion degrees with humidity), and I couldn't believe it but I was poking my way carefully thru gates and doorways and found myself at the stables for the Clydesdales. I have a memory of coming up to the stables and seeing several with their butts to me munching away, and I'll never forget one empty stable that was so clean and comfortable-looking, ventilated air moving, straw for bedding that made ME want to curl up and sleep. Those horses looked like they were pampered like royalty, and I was very impressed with that, plus their SIZE and impeccable grooming.

I snuck back out of there fully expecting to be arrested, but it was a clean getaway!

Horses are naturally curious. I tested livestock scales as part of my duties as a weights and measures official. I have had occasions where I was surprised by a horse standing behind me in a scale house watching what I was doing. Beef cattle would come over and watch too, one of my favorite breeds of animals.
