Before making any potentially controversial edits, it is recommended that you discuss them first on the article's talk page. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. Please stop adding this material in without a source that actually says the Clydesdales have been removed. Neither the official webpage nor the one you keep linking to state this (yet). umrguy42 15:16, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

Grant's Farm[edit]

Hi Newyork.dream, in addition to suggesting you read some of the links above, I particularly want to encourage you to watch the tone of your additions - Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, and you seem to be writing more like a tourist brochure in tone. In particular, see WP:Advertising, point #5. umrguy42 16:41, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

Also, please read WP:MINOR about when to mark your edits as "minor". In a nutshell, significant addition of content (as opposed to merely fixing typos, rearranging sentences, correcting links/references, and formatting changes) should NOT be marked as "minor". umrguy42 16:43, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
