Clydesdales grow more slowly than other horse breeds. The foals aren't fully grown until the age of seven or eight, instead of four or five. They then weigh over 1,000 kg - as much as a small car. They are so strong that they can pull objects that are much heavier than themselves. This also means they need a lot of food and water. Every day, they need 20-25 kg of grain with minerals and vitamins, and around 50-60 kg hay. Needless to say, this makes them thirsty - very thirsty, in fact. Clydesdales drink over 100 litres of water per day.Fun Fact: Clydesdale foals are already almost a metre tall at birth.

Every horse person around the area knows this is the best place to shop. Marion and staff are terrific and very knowledgeable.
I'm so grateful for the helpful and very informative service I received at The Tack Box today...I walked out feeling supported and informed.
If I could give this place a 10 star rating I would. They go above and beyond to help people, Thank you so much to the lady that helped me out!
Great store, lovely staff, wide range of products at affordable prices. One of my favourite horse shops to go to to buy tack room needs.
