Warm Springs Ranch in Booneville, Mo., introduced their newest Budweiser Clydesdale foal.

Eminem was born on September 14. He was named by combining the first initials of his mother, Marcie, and his father, Miles. The foal weighed between 135 and 150 pounds when he was born.

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. Clydesdales must go through years of training before becoming eligible to join one of the three travelling teams, or hitches.

People touring Warm Springs Ranch may see Eminem in person.

Additionally, the ranch is featuring a concert series in October. Click here for more information.
