IN 1999, BILLY GO BOY WENT TO THE MOUNTAIN TOP AND SAW THE ‘LEWISBURG ACCORDS’ AS THE ONLY WAY FOR THE TENNESSEE WALKING HORSE BREED TO SURVIVE

THETA, TN – In the halcyon days of the Big Lickers of 1999, it become apparent to Billy Go Boy and Radar that in order for the Tennessee Walking Horse breed to be able to reach its unlimited potential, the evil “Big Lick” had to go its separate way and leave the sound Tennessee Walking Horse and the breed registry to seek its own level.

Now 14 years later, the fork in the road has come.

The Tennessee Walking Show Horse has remained a “fixed” and “sore” creature,  and now change is at hand.

Look no further than Honors,  the “Saviour Horse” for all the proof you need:

"HONORS'" NEVER MADE IT OFF THE TRAILER

Look no further than Ex-PSHA Chair Terry Dotson who told U. S. Secretary of Agriculture that PSHA would clean up soring,  before Terry Dotson got two horses turned down the first night of the 2013 Celebration, then got into a “verbal dustup” with a USDA VMO.

Does Terry Dotson love Tennessee Walking Horses enough to accept the change that is coming?

Look no further than 2012 – 2013 TWHBEA Executive Committee Members Wayne Dean, David Mullis and Linda Montgomery with HPA Citation Histories.

THE CLEAN AND THE NOT SO CLEAN

THE CLEAN AND THE NOT SO CLEAN

A Bill, the Prevent All Soring Tactics Act, to:

  • Remove pads and chains
  • Eliminate HIOs
  • Make horse soring a felony

is about to pass the United State House of Represenatives by an overwhelming margin.

At the same time,  a group of hardened insensitive “Big Lick” crowd which believes it can roll back the clock is about to bring down the curtain of darkness in Lewisburg, Tennessee on the Sound Horse.

All under the charade of some “No Horse Left Behind” or “rail to the trail” foolishness in an effort to put lipstick on a pig

with some reduced pads and leather dog collar  when the Sound Horse really does need to leave the “Big Lick” padded and chained horse behind to have a chance to survive.

This greedy misguided out of step crowd at TWHBEA is now going to try and shackle the Tennessee Walking Horse breed to the padded chained “Big Lick. Tracy Boyd summed it up in his May 27, 2013 Statement “When’ve you lost the public, you have lost it all.”

When recently given the opportunity to speak, 63% of the TWHBEA members in a landslide voted to remove the public perception of soring and abuse presently associated with the Tennessee Walking Horse breed – eliminate the pads and chains.

BGBPOLLQUESTION

It should be obvious to all by now that a marvelous breed of horses has been burdened, handicapped and held back by the ongoing drama and discord from the evils of the Big Lick which you simply cannot have without soring.   At some point a fork in the roads  would have to be reached where the Tennesee Walking Horse breed would go one direction and the “Big Lick” horse based on pads and chains and soring would go another.

That point has come – “The Lewisburg Accords”.

Perhaps, the choices are to provide the breed records to both the Sound Horse and the Big Lick and let them both seek members and go forward with their vision of the Tennessee Walking Horse breed.

There are irreconcilable differences.

These guys need to realize that the clock is NOT going to be turned back.

One thought on “IN 1999, BILLY GO BOY WENT TO THE MOUNTAIN TOP AND SAW THE ‘LEWISBURG ACCORDS’ AS THE ONLY WAY FOR THE TENNESSEE WALKING HORSE BREED TO SURVIVE

  1. I think it’s really important to point out that the TWH breed itself is not going to go extinct. As far as I can tell, there are thousands of FS and BF TWHs that are being bred on a regular basis, so the breed isn’t going to go away. It’s not like if the BL goes away, all TWHs will just go *poof*. What I think will happen is that TWHBEA is going to fall, even as hard as we have worked to get the sound horse folks in there and make a change. At this point, I unfortunately don’t think that there is enough time to salvage TWHBEA before they kill themselves since the sore horse people are working so hard to fight going sound. But IMHO, it’s okay. Let them fail. I’ll support my local sound horse rep as long as she’s in office, and then I’ll be out too. Someone else will pick up the pieces and we’ll see a new day for the TWH without stacks, chains, and bands.
