Locals bring Clydesdales to Winthrop

by Michael Mattison

The Clydesdale has been synonymous with Budweiser for many years. The stately horse is not only beautiful but hard working. Tom Maidl and Michael Looft currently own three of these horses, two females and one male which they care for on their farm near Winthrop.

They had another, Nell, which passed away in 2021 at the age of 20. Maidl worked for Budweiser Clydesdales in St. Louis after high school for about a year. He came back to Minnesota and bought Nell in 2012.
