“Performance Show Horse Association Announces Opposition to PAST Act
Monday, August 05, 2013
Today, the Performance Show Horse Association (PSHA) shared its opposition to the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, being offered by U.S. Senators Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) and Mark Warner (D-VA). The House version – in amendment form – was introduced earlier this year by Congressman Ed Whitfield (R-KY).
“PSHA strongly opposes the PAST Act because it would destroy an entire equine division, costs tens of thousands of jobs, eliminate hundreds of millions of dollars in economic activity and millions in charitable giving, devastating communities and people’s lives throughout the country,” said Terry Dotson, PSHA Chair.
The PAST Act would:
“¢ Eliminate a total division of the equine breed, impacting more than 10,000 horses that would be deemed no longer fit for their intended purpose;
“¢ Take from hard-working taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars of investments and income without cause or any scientific evidence;
“¢ Eliminate the Horse Protection Act’s self-regulation, which is far superior to that of the federal government and which does not need the hundreds of new federal employees required by Whitfield’s amendment;
“¢ Create a new federal bureaucracy that will result in a cost of tens of millions of dollars for taxpayers.”
Chris included in the Purple Whopper a quote from PSHA Chair Terry Dotson who said that the PAST ACT would destroy “an entire equine division” is BALONEY. Mather appears not to know which end of the horse the oats go in.
And Dotson’s other wild claim about the PAST Act “devastating communities and people’s lives throughout the country“. Pssst Chris, I know you use that kind of language in Presidential campaigns, but the Tennessee Walking Horse racket is primarily located in Middle Tennessee. This is an area South of Nashville that you probably need to visit some time. You’ll find it’s not exactly the whole country – just a part of a state. While you are there, please get some of the Trainer Boyz explain to you about “salicylic acid treatments” – “setting them up” – “putting two drops in the pocket” – and the medicinal qualities of “Go-Jo and saran wrap”“.
Chris, in a story done by Heidi Hall of The Tennessean when asked what would he do if change came to the Tennessee Walking Horse, and basically Dotson told Hall if the Big Lick Padded Horse no longer existed he didn’t wish to participate. So much for the love of the Tennessee Walking Horse breed.
For an Obama/Biden/Emanuel aide to be talking about “taking from the hard-working taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars” is comical along with the notion of creating a new federal bureaucracy yada yada yada.
Mather tops it all with her “what world are you living in claim” that the self regulation by the Tennessee Walking Horse racket is far superior to that of the federal government. Chris Mather has obviously not read the Office of Inspector General Report which condemns the present regulation by the industry/racket. When she wrote these words for Terry Dotson, she apparently was unaware that USDA implemented the Federal Regulations known as mandatory “Minimum Penalties” – and of course the “Big Lickers”, which Purple Mather has been hired to spin for, sued the USDA trying to derail these regulations to enforce the Horse Protection Act the purpose of which was to STOP SORING. Chris, did Trooper Terry forgot to tell you that Texas Federal Judge Terry said no more soring and “slam dunked” the Big Lickers last week with a Summary Judgement. Everyone is looking forward to your next Purple Whopper telling which of their options the Lickers are going to choose.
Sorry, Chris you can’t have it both ways as much as the “Big Lick” crowd would like to do so.
Now – it is not yet known if Mather will also be doing press work for “Daddy” Warbucks Frank Eichler in his quest to buy part of TWHBEA. Some have had trouble wrapping their minds around how you buy part of a breed registry based on the different ways horses may be shod. But “Daddy” Warbucks seems to understand it – even if nobody else does.
“DADDY” WARBUCKS FRANK EICHLER – WOULD BE CZAR OF TENNESSEE WALKING HORSE
Word around Middle Tennessee is Czar Eichler has not yet reached persona non grata status with the Walking Horse Trainers, but he is close.
