BIG LICK HALL OF FAME TRAINERS CALLING IT QUITS BY THE DROVES – BIG LICK CHANGE.ORG PETITION OPPOSING HR 1518/S1406 STALLS OUT AT 1,061 SUPPORTERS

SHELBYVILLE, TN – In a tumultuous year that saw Jackie McConnell sentenced for the second time and sentenced to year of house arrest and a $25,000.00 fine for a misdemeanor, and Larry Joe Wheelon dodge a felony bullet in a Preliminary Hearing glitch in Maryville meanwhile waiting for the other shoe to drop on a Grand Jury indictment, TWHBEA members voting landslide 63% to remove the pads and chains from the Tennessee Walking Show Horses, and a devastating blow with the witnesses testimony at the Nov. 13, 2013 Congressional Hearings, the Big Lick Celebration Hall of Fame Trainers members ranks are thinning out.

On the current front, in an effort to muster support to show to Congress, a Change.org Petition has been started – Petitioning United States House and Senate – United States House and Senate: Oppose HR1518 and S1406 PAST Act

The Petition has been going for about a week now and appears to have stalled at 1,061 petitioners. The main supporters seem to be congregated in Tennessee and Kentucky.

The strong rumor is the Trainer Boyz are going to have to do more than come up with “Color Coded Chains” next week at the Trainers Meeting in order to have a 2014 show season.

  1. Obviously, these are the most intelligent of all the trainers; they know the handwriting’s on the wall. I liked Knox Blackburn’s statement, “I have to take care of my family.” Now there’s a man.
