The Lickers are coming into town in a car with two flat tires riding on the rims making one heckuva racket. Judge Means has lowered the boom on them, and “Herr” David L. Howard and his Wehrmacht have declared War on TWHBEA – the breed registry – right before the Celebration – and trying to cripple it by kicking it off the show grounds and not providing show results which TWHBEA’s high point awards are based.
NO BUILDING – NO SHOW RECORDS – HIT THE ROAD JACK
Judge Terry Means has lowered the boom on SHOW HIO and “Herr’s” Licker Volk.
The Reichstag will hold off on cooperating with the USDA Mandatory “Minimum” Penalties until after the 75th Diamond Anniversary Celebration which has a Grand Total of 15, that’ s right, FIFTEEN (15) horses entered in the Big Stake on Saturday night qualifying night. Then to ensure that everyone gets a ribbon, they split the class into A and B divisions.
Who can take this folks seriously?
And there’s some talk circulating around about Honors maybe not having an unblemished HPA history.
Some in the know say they are planning a “Larry Wheelon” Appreciation Night and it will have Larry joe all slicked up as the “Grand Marshal” for the Celebration Parade featuring Larry and all the former Celebration Queens.
Last year, they tried giving away “Free Money” and free tickets to every school kid in Bedford County. Heck, this year they may even throw in a couple of 1/2 price “Beer Night” as a come on.
But I digress, back to the Licker Grand Plan.
They are going to try and saddle up some “bought and paid for” political muscle – and get in a dark smoke filled room in DC and trying to coerce somebody into making a deal where they can keep about a 1/2 package and just enough action device to get the way high front end.
In their mind, they think if they don’t go with Mandatory “Minimum Penalties” right now, that USDA won’t do a cotton picking thing.
And so far, they are right. USDA usually doesn’t do a cotton picking thing.
Now during the Celebration, Purple Strategies is going to spin this Yarn that outside forces are responsible for the environment “Herr” David L. Howard has presided over which has resulted in the Celebration losing about $1,000,000.00, and “Herr’s” beloved SHOW HIO being in debt for about $600,000.00. The total of the debt and losses is expected to hit $2,000,000.00, maybe more, by the end of 2013.
Last year, Purple Strategies spun an apparent web of deceit regarding the non-transparent supposedly highly questionable Walking Horse Trainers Swabbing Initiative. Of course this year, it’s not mentioned at all.
Combined with trying to cut a deal with USDA post Celebration to keep the pads and action device, “Herr” David L. Howard and “Daddy” Warbucks Frank Eichler are going to start a NEW breed registry called something like the “AMERICAN WALKING HORSE ASSOCIATION” and have it associated with what else, The Celebration.
So far, “Herr’s” Lickers have blown about $400,000.00 on the USDA lawsuit they lost, and about $250,000.00 on the much ballyhooed Swabbing Initiative which went down faster than a one egg pudding.
This is more fun than watching an Animal House “Road Trip” featuring Bluto, Flounder and Niedermayer.
I am telling you, you really couldn’t make up this hootenanny if you tried.
And, trust me, something big is going to go down next week.
