2013 – 1972 = 41 YEARS – HORSE SORING HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR SO SO LONG – AND CHANGE – “IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING, BUT A CHANGE GONNA COME, YES IT WILL” IS THE QUESTION POSED TO U. S. SENATOR LAMAR ALEXANDER

MEMPHIS, TN – In 1972, public schools in the South were just starting to integrate, there were no African American quarterbacks in the NFL, Richard Nixon was President of the United States, Roberto Clemente died in a plane crash, Lamar Alexander was practicing law in Nashville, and folks in Tennessee were soring Tennessee Walking Horses in the name of “Sport” and family entertainment.

Walking Horse Report Editor Jeffrey Howard, who had not yet been born in 1972, refers to the sore Big Lick as “the sport you love” and mouths the purple baloney 98.4% compliance. His sister Saddle Horse Report Editor, Christy Howard Parsons, made a Freudian slip last week and said, ” … soring is a major problem“.

From the AP news report below soring was also a “major problem” in 1972.

Its 2013 and people are talking about indictments and enforcing the Horse Protection Act.

Some of you old timers might find some of these names interesting.

The question that U. S. Senator Lamar Alexander and his colleagues are going to have to decide about Horse Soring in the coming days – is a change going to come? The 73 year old Lamar Alexander could leave a fitting legacy if he puts principle above Steve Smith’s $ 3 million dollars, and decides that it is.

  1. Where do find this stuff BGB? Jackie McDonnell has his “craft” down, 41 years experience abusing & torturing horses. Am not sure if his sentence allows him to have animals or children, but this monster does not have the right to be the steward of any other living thing. Glad you keep sharing & getting this stuff out. At some point these reprehensible people otherwise known as Tennessee politicians will feel ashamed they had anything to do with the Licker crowd (this does not apply to Steve Cohen).
