Bud has some stables right up the road at the brewery in Ft Collins, CO. Tours culminate in a tasting room. I usually skip the tour, as it's not required for the tastings. It is amazing how immaculate they keep that stable.
I saw them in Portsmouth NH in 199 or 2000. I was doing security at the NH Port Authorrity whan the had em in for a parade and used the PA as a staging area for the team. Got to look at all of em and the dog even came up to me to be petted. Very nice team.
Another interesting fact the dalmation is also the official mascot of the fire service and the reason they used to have dogs was to scare away other animals from the horses as they responded to a fire. They were also used for other wagons as well.
