CLEVELAND, Tenn., Sept. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The famous Clydesdale horses from Check Into Cash, known as the "Cashdales" have been touring the country making stops in fairs, festivals and parades from Mobile, Alabama to Saginaw, Michigan. As they head back to Tennessee, they'll be making a stop this week in Charleston at the International Cowpea Festival and Cook-off on Saturday, September 14th at Historic Charleston City Park.
"We're a Tennessee based business, and we want to ensure our fellow Tennesseans have the chance to see these beautiful animals. They represent the pride and sophistication that embodies everything we do at Check Into Cash," said Steve Scoggins, Check Into Cash President. Following their stop, the Cashdales will continue their visit of stores and festivals throughout the communities that Check Into Cash serves across the country.
The horses are rare among the Clydesdale breed, as they are black with white stocking markings. Fewer than 9 percent of the breed carries the mixed colors. The horses are an equally matched team at 18.2 hands tall, which is significant because to qualify for competition the pair must be the same height.
Each horse has a weight of over 2,000 pounds. Their shoes are the size of dinner plates and weigh more than 3 pounds each. Most Clydesdales carry the common traits of strength and patience, so they adequately represent Check Into Cash and the company heritage.
Clydesdales are considered a tall breed, although originally the animals were one of the smaller breeds of draught or "draw" horses. These are horses that are primarily used for heavy hauling or pulling.
