SHELBYVILLE, TN – The USDA showed up on Thursday Night.
The Trainers apparently chickened out on the first night on taking a lot of Scar Rule Horses through inspection until the Trainer BOYZ saw how the USDA was going to check Horses.
The USDA had the Thermograph machine on the table – but didn’t use it.
Approximately 92 Horses were shown.
Approximately 10 – 15 of them were way too deep.
A Compliant Horse Is A Sore Horse Which Got Through Inspection.
You can’t have the Big Lick without soring.
Here are some Big Lick Horses from Thursday Night.
LADY STALLION CLASS – NICE ELEVATION
THREE YEAR OLD MARE – GREAT IMAGE, HUH?
So, now the USDA job is going get interesting.
Does the USDA stay the course and Protect The Horses.
Or worry about David L. Howard’s Celebration’s “Gate Receipts”?
Here’s the Friday Night Class Sheet:
It’s time for the USDA to move from the “C” grade to at least a “B”.
Sore horses showed Thursday night …. lots of them!
Maybe the USDA needs to put somebody up in the stands with a clipboard and keep up with all those sore Horses that the USDA passed through inspection that showed in the ring that they are obviously sore.
It’s either eliminate the soring or regulate it.
The Horses need to be protected.
The Grade will be posted here tomorrow night.
