This is a Clydesdale foal in a halter class.  Breed standards for showing Clydesdales include mane rolling, tail braiding, sawdusting and soaping. The mane is rolled with a long piece of fabric, usually consisting of two colors that represent the stable where the horse originated. Decorations are added to the mane, and the tail is braided into a tight bun with a bow iadded. Sawdusting, brushing sawdust into the horse’s feathers before going into the show ring, makes the horse’s feathers fluffy and flowing.  Soaping, rubbing glycerine soap against the hair over the horse’s body is a practice, makes the horse appear larger which is desirable for this breed. This colt has a white rope halter, typical show tack for a Clydesdale halter class.
