No horsing around, it's Clydesdale Horse Week, and you can get up close and personal with what is considered to be the most majestic 'gentle giants' horses on earth, for free.

Sept 19-25 is National Clydesdale Week and the The Behn Bros. of Pecatonica are offering you a chance to get up close with real Clydesdale horses on Sunday. You've seen them on TV and in Budweiser commercials for years, but there is nothing like seeing them in person, for free.

The Behn Brothers are third generation Clydesdale Breeders and a family run business. You've seen their horses in parades and special events here in the Stateline. Of course, you've seen them at  Boone County Fair.

You can visit the Clydsdales at special Open Barn Event this Sunday Sept 25th
