LEWISBURG, TN – it’s interesting to watch the lesson of “The Map” play out as Steve Smith creates his vision of TWHBEA which is essentially a “Sore Horse” Registry. Smith and the sore Lickers have paid a huge price trying to keep Christy Lantis and attempting to punish Pat Stout. The nation has been watching and doesn’t much like what it is seeing. And David L. Howard and John T. Bobo got caught trying to foist “Sound Horse” guy Doyle Meadows off as just the man to run an ” Independent HIO”. It appears that they were trying to pull the wool over the eyes of APHIS Administrator Kevin Shea.
First, David L. Howard had daughter Christy come out and saying ” …Soring Is A Major Problem”.
Then he gets hung going over the USDA Steeplechase with former Celebration CEO Doyle Meadows masquerading as the face of enlightenment where horse soring is concerned. Meadows presided over the “in trouble” Show, HIO which was a subsidiary of the Celebration. Meadows rightfully “owns” whatever S.H.O.W. HIO did or did not do while he was Celebration CEO from 2009 to October 31, 2012. S.H.O.W. HIO is being prosecuted for 139 HPA violations, many of them occurring on Meadows job from June – October 31, 2012.
The sore Big Lickers are so fixated and myopic that they don’t realize this all is playing out in front of the eyes of the nation..
The mystic Map has many lessons – one of which is the growth potential of the tainted sored Tennessee Walking Horse does not exist. As this Map portrays, there is no future for the Tennessee Walking Horse so long as Steve Smith’s “sore” Big Lick bunch holds the power in Lewisburg. The United States is just lined up against anything that says Tennessee Walking Horse. The “Heartland – Walking Tall” – family drama Canadian television program took at huge toll, as the You Tube got about 50,000 views.
When you lose this much in one week you are not doing well:
- 13,300 member Back Country Horseman dissolves partership over SORING.
- Tennessee Walking Horse Icon W. W. “Bill” Harlin says, ““Tennessee is getting a reputation as being a horse abuse state. Pads and chains are killing the industry.”
Steve “ur” Smith is cutting a wide swathe for a guy who was going to “unite” and “rebuild”.
TWHBEA Chief Justice Walt Chism is emulating Joe Willie Namath at the Super Bowl Coin toss.
The Christy Lantis debacle has taken a toll on TWHBEA.
“Tennessee is getting a reputation as being a horse abuse state. Pads and chains are killing the industry.”
Directors have resigned and have never been more split.
Steve Smith seems to think he can “force” the two diametrically opposed factions under one roof.
The good news is that President Smith and VP Fiscal Affairs Christy Lantis exercised fiscal restraint and split a donut at the Lantis removal meeting.
The Lickers are paying $17,000.00 a month on a lobbyist and public relations firm and are going to try to make a comeback.
The Larry Joe Wheelon prosecution awaits.
And the Trainer Boyz are going bonkers about Billy Go Boy appearing on Shelbyville NOW as the source for the “Complaint” certifying S.H.O,W. HIO.
And David L. Howard still hasn’t published the “Complaint” decertifying S.H.O.W. HIO on The Walking Horse Report although it’s all over Shelbyville on “Shelbyville NOW”.
Sure makes you wonder why?
And it’s only Tuesday.
