Thudding hoof and flowing hair, Style and action sweet and fair,
Bone and sinew well defined, Movement close both fore and hind,
Noble eye and handsome head, Bold, intelligent, well-bred,
Lovely neck and shoulder laid, See how shapely he is made,
Muscle strong and frame well knit, Strength personified and fit,
Thus the Clydesdale – see him go, To the field, the stud, the show,
Proper back and ribs well sprung, Sound of limb, and sound of lung,
Powerful loin, and quarter wide, Grace and majesty allied,
Basic power – living force – Equine king – the Clydesdale horse.
