It was apparently all set up with APHIS Administrator Kevin Shea,  but the plot was exposed on www.billygoboy.com  .  Shea didn’t publicize the Complaint filed on January 7, 2014  apparently in order to give David L. Howard’s Celebration’s S.H.O.W. HIO enough time to get a new HIO,  Independent Inspection Services, LLC HIO, approved by Kevin Shea.  The new “one hio” would take the place of the disgraced S.H.O.W. HIO.  The application was filed with Shea and pending approval.

Interestingly, part of David L. Howard’s Licker overall Plan was to have an alternative Bill to the PAST ACT introduced which would eliminate all HIOs (again get rid of those 139 minimum penalty HPA violations) and provide for an “Independent” Commission (stacked with political hack appointments, and God forbid,  consulting with the WHTA BOYZ on possible members) which combined with “new technology” would clean up soring once and for all.This was part of the Winky Groover line he mouthed to the Channel 6 WATE(ABC) reporter in the feature which aired yesterday.

Then www.billygoboy.com obtained a copy of the Complaint and published it, and then let the world know about the Independent Inspections Services, LLC HIO application.   Persons have requested copies of the Independent Inspection Services, LLC HIO, but so far Adminstrator Kevin Shea has refused to release it.

Celebration Chairman David L. Howard’s Walking Horse Report didn’t publish the Complaint decertifying the Celebration owned S.H.O.W. HIO until a week later. The Complaint was supposed to be “confidential” until Kevin Shea and David L. Howard’s Lickers had everything in place.   Part of the plan was apparently Howard’s Lickers wouldn’t contest S.H.O.W. HIO being done away with and all the tickets, suspensions and penalties associated with the Celebration’s S.H.O.W. HIO would just go away forever.  And the Trainer Boyz like Winky Groover, Mickey McCormick with all those HPA Citations, and these guys, would be exceedingly happy.  They would get a new start and a clean slate.

WHTA BOYZ BOARD

Another part of the apparent Licker  deal,  in which Kevin Shea was apparently complicit, was the USDA would approve the David L. Howard, TWSHO, PSHA backed new Independent Inspection Services, LLC HIO.  Then at the WHTA BOYZ Meeting on  Monday, February 17, 2014, see notice below, the  WHTA Boyz were supposed to vote and approve the “one HIO”,  Independent Inspection Services, LLC HIO.  Once the Licker Plan was blown up, the February 17, 2014 WHTA BOYZ meeting was cancelled according to David L. Howard’s Walking Horse Report.

WHTA TRAINER BOYZ MEETING SET FOR MONDAY, FEB 17, 2014 TO APPROVE NEW "ONE" HIO

WHTA TRAINER BOYZ MEETING SET FOR MONDAY, FEB 17, 2014 TO APPROVE NEW “ONE” HIO

In a separate, but related matter,  David L. Howard’s Celebration’s S.H.O.W. HIO is presently being decertified by the USDA, and at issue are 139 HPA violations which occurred from July 2012 – September 2013 which S.H.O. W. HIO refuses to upload to the USDA HPA database.  APHIS Administrator Kevin Shea reportedly has taken no action to either force Howard’s Celebration’s S.H.O.W. HIO to do so or have independent contractors do so.   Until Shea takes action the public will not be able to see what the 139 HPA violations were or know who the penalties are on.  For sure,  David L. Howard’s Celebration’s S.H.O.W. HIO doesn’t want anyone to see them.

Kevin Shea needs to FIRED if he doesn’t do this, and do it immediately.  The public has a right to know, and so do the United States Congressmen who oversee bureaucrats like Kevin Shea.

It’s like the 139 HPA violations which carry the Licker dreaded Minimum Penalties never happened. One allegedly involves a relative of  ABC Nightline’s Jackie McConnell which would carry a one year suspension for a two footer under the minimum penalties.

I can understand why David L. Howard doesn’t want anyone to see these violations and penalties.

The real question is WHY doesn’t  public servant, APHIS Administrator Kevin Shea want anyone to see these violations and penalties?

And why would Shea be complicit in keeping the public from having this information.   The USDA oversaw this process of the 139 violations with taxpayers money and has the information laying on Shea’s office floor.   For some inexplicable reason, Shea refuses to make S.H.O.W. HIO put the violations in the USDA data base like the compliant HIOS like WHOA and IWHA and FOSH do.

So why doesn’t Shea:

  1. Make S.H.O.W. HIO do it.
  2. Do it himself with his 7,000 APHIS employees.

Please ask him:      kevin.a.shea@usda.gov

You can also ask his bosses:    Tom Vilsack ““ agsec@usda.gov
Krysta Harden – krysta.harden@usda.gov
Ed Avalos ““ ed.avalos@osec.usda.gov

And please send  each of them a copy of this article.  You can do so by going to the bottom  of the article and using the email feature.   Note:  you can only send to one email address at a time.  And please share this with everyone you know and ask them to ask Kevin Shea why he is favoring David L. Howard’s  sore Big Lick and not protecting The Horses as Congress intended.

Also, please ask them why Kevin Shea has not filed Complaint to decertify Heart of America HIO which has refused since 2012 to accept the mandatory minimum penalties which are now part of the Horse Protection Act.

 DR. CHESTER GIPSON, DVM - "HERR" HOWARD'S PARTNER

The superiors of APHIS Administrator Kevin Shea and Deputy Administrator Chester Gipson, DVM owe the American taxpayer and United States Congressmen an explanation why these two men are not doing their jobs and are showing favoritism to the sore Big Lick they are supposed to be eliminating, not coddling and giving preferential treatment.
