BGW Clydesdale's went from brown to black

While they had to surrender the AB Clydesdales at BGW due to the sale.. They did acquire new black Clydesdale's.

Read about changes in the stable changes here.

A photo I took of the arrival of them in December can be seen on my FLICKR page.

Well that's good news.

I would assume they will be doing the same at BGT.

The Busch Clydesdales , if I recall properly, are the property of the family, not the company, and were not part of the either the InBev deal or the Blackstone purchase. The team that was at Seaworld SD left a couple of days after the sale was completed.

You recall incorrectly.

They horses at BGW are actually owned and maintained by Anheuser-Busch, not the family. Which is why they couldnt maintain their presence as they were not included in the terms of the Blackstone sale.

This is also why they were still there after the AB-IB purchase at BGW. As they had the ability to maintain them because the parks were still a part of AB.
