GALLATIN, TN – Donna Benefield lambasted Jeffrey Howard‘s December 3, 2013 SPIN JOB on 98% compliance done before the Editorial Board of the The Tennessean newspaper.
Benefield took The Walking Horse Report Editor Jeffrey Howard to task:
BENEFIELD ASKS HOWARD:
What about all the “Unacceptables” that SHOW does not ticket and simply sends the horse back to the barn? -What about all the owners that SHOW does not ticket? -What about the Hearings that they continue to postpone, in order to allow potential violators to continue to show and up the entry numbers, especially at 2013 Celebration? -What about the positive swabbing results on horses that managed to trick the inspectors and get thru inspection? -What about all the non compliant horses the USDA found, that SHOW DQPs either didn’t find or refused to ticket? -Oh, that’s right, I forgot, SHOW and the USDA are in complete agreement on numbers (As per Jeffrey Howard to Tennessean Editorial Board) “¦”¦ NOT! I suppose none of these numbers would impact PSHA/SHOW’s bogus compliant numbers? No wonder they were put on notice of decertification. No wonder this breed is no longer attracting new people! And the Sore Rewarders want to blame the Whitfield Bill (which, BTW has not become law yet)? The Whitfield Bill may be one of the things that will assist in getting rid of the Bad Apples that continue to be rewarded.
Radar and Nephew Eugene thinks it’s time The Tennessean Editorial Board needs to invite Donna Benefield in for a Video interview to be made publicly available. Better yet, it would be wonderful if The Tennessean invited both Donna Benefield and Jeffrey Howard to appear.
One wouldn’t show, and it wouldn’t be Donna Benefield. You can bet your bottom dollar that Jeffrey Howard would never face tha music, just like he didn’t show up to testify under oath before Congress, either.
