COLIN DILTZ / THE SEATTLE TIMES

After hearing that Annalicia Herrera, right, couldn't see the horses because she was blind, Jim Damico, left, lifted Herrera up to touch the Budweiser Clydesdale horses and feel how tall they are at the Smokey Point Walmart parking lot Sunday. Herrera said she was impressed with how big the horses were. The eight horses are one of many teams touring the country as part of a November military tour and will visit Joint Base Lewis-McChord Nov. 28 through Nov. 30. They can also be visited at the Puyallup Fairgrounds during that time. Damico is one of the horse handlers. For more info, visit the online schedule.
