The Auction Clydesdales
The Auction Clydesdales are stabled in Bristol Virginia and owned by Bart Long and Associates Realty & Auction LLC. Bart Long and Associates Realty & Auction LLC was founded by Bart Long and has grown to be one of the largest real estate auction firms in the southeastern United States. We are proud to have The Auction Clydesdales as the ambassadors of our auction business. We enjoy sharing these big guys with our community in local parades, fairs, and other events each year.
Horses for the Clydesdale hitch are selected from leading Clydesdale breeders in the United States and Canada. Each horse is bay in color, stands around 19 hands tall, and weighing around 2200 pounds. These boys like to eat! Their daily diet is 50-70 pounds of feed and hay each day. The horses and equipment are moved in a custom 53ft. Featherlight semi-trailer built to haul the horses, harness, and wagon. The beautiful classic yellow hitch wagon was built in 1908 by the Studebaker Bros. Company in South Bend Indiana and restored by Lawrence Wagon Works in 2010. It is one of only a few such wagons left in our country today.
We hope you will visit with us at one of our upcoming events. Bart
