For Jack Parnell of Parnell Ranch, Clydesdales aren't just an iconic breed of horse - they're also a connection to America's past.
British jazz drummer Jack Parnell, who served as bandleader on "The Muppet Show," has died aged 87, his family said Monday.
The country and its citizens past built their homes, plowed their fields and rode into battle with the power of the immense animals and, for him, Parnell said, there's no getting past that fact.
"These animals built America," he said.
