Clydesdales to Compete at Maryland State Fair

Updated: Thursday, August 21 2014, 08:38 PM EDT

One of the things on show at this year’s Maryland State Fair are Clydesdale horses --- and these majestic animals are being raised right here in Maryland.

Tucked away in St. Mary’s County where the pavement turns to dirt and the sounds of traffic are drowned out by silence, sits Suttler Post Farm. For Danny Mast, a blue ribbon is at stake. He will be at the reigns, representing three generations of farmers at the Maryland State Fair.

This family farm has been growing and changing since the 1950s from hogs to tobacco, but  all that changed in 2001 when the owner's daughter laid eyes on a Clydesdale named Dock.

Today, Wayne and his son Danny have 10 Clydesdales, each one with their own personality.
