THE SNITCH SQUAD ASSIGNED TO TWHBEA DIRECTOR KEITH DANE
Inman assigned Tyler Thomas, son of Shelbyville Fire Chief Mark Thomas to shadow TWHBEA director Keith Dane’s every move on the Celebration grounds Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Tennessean reporter Heidi Hall was also banned from taking a photograph of a horse being swabbed. Others were also stopped from taking a picture. One of the official in a belligerent angry flaring tone with a raised voice said, “NO PHOTOGRAPHS”.
THE INSPECTION AREA – CELEBRATION
What in the world do they have to hide and what are they afraid of?
It’s rumored that Inman will be one and done.
But that makes lots of sense because “Herr” Howard’s modus operandi is to always have someone to blame things on. Mike appears to figuratively be “dead man walking” where this Celebration CEO job is concerned.
Nephew Eugene witnessed some things last Saturday night when Inman confronted USDA National Horse Protection Coordinator Rachel Cezar, DVM expressing his displeasure about “Honors being turned down by USDA Vet due to scars on both front feet and sensitive sore in one foot.
To his credit, APHIS Deputy Administrator Chester Gipson allowed Dr. Cezar to do her job, and her staff did their job in an exemplary manner the entire 10 days, and especially on Friday night when the SHOW HIO DQPS went 0 for 138 Horses checked with no HPA violations.
The USDA Vets found 11 HPA violations.
The Celebration needs to be fun again.
Fun isn’t having Americans being tailed by Security operatives or prohibiting a media person or anyone from the public for matter from taking a picture of horse being swabbed before entering the inspection area.
Makes you wonder what they are trying to hide or what has them so afraid.
