[klahydz-deyl] /ˈklaɪdzˌdeɪl/

one of a Scottish breed of strong, hardy draft horses, having a feathering of long hairs along the backs of the legs.
a heavy powerful breed of carthorse, originally from Scotland

“breed of heavy draught horses,” 1786, so called because they were bred in the valley of the Clyde in Scotland. The river name is perhaps literally “cleansing,” from a Celtic root akin to Latin cloaca (see cloaca).
