He's named after the famous rapper because the initials of his mother and father, Marcie and Myles, are “M&M." After years of training, he'll be eligible to join one of the three Budweiser traveling teams, or hitches.

Eminem is beginning to explore his home, which is open for visitors to come see along with more than 70 other Clydesdales, ranging from foals to stallions.

When born, Clydesdale foals stand about three feet tall, weigh roughly 150 pounds, and can walk within hours of being born. Adult Clydesdales are usually about 18 hands, or six feet tall, at their withers and weigh around 2,000 pounds. They will eat up to 20 quarts of grain, 50 pounds of hay, and drink up to 35 gallons of water every day.
