SHELBYVILLE, TN – If ever there was any question that the PAST ACT is needed NOW, the answer was conclusively provided during the past three days at the 46th Annual National Trainers Show in the “Horse Abuse State Of Tennessee” at its soring Capitol of Shelbyville.
* THE SORE BIG LICK BOGUS 98.6% COMPLIANCE CLAIMS WERE BLOW SKY HIGH.
* SELF REGULATION WILL NEVER WORK.
* PSHA/ DAVID L. HOWARD GANG HAS NO INTENTION TO ELIMINATE SORING.
* CELEBRATION BOARD PAT MARSH – NEED THAT “FANCY HIGH STEPPING HORSE”
* TRAINER BOYZ HAVE NO INTENTION TO STOP SORING.
* THE BLACKBURN BILL TO ENABLE SORING IS TERRIBLE LEGISLATION
* THE TRAINER BOYZ JUDGES TIE THE SORE GOING HORSE IN EVERY CLASS.
* THE PAST ACT IS THE ONLY SOLUTION TO PROTECTING THE HORSES.
* IT NEEDS TO PASS NOW!
* THE TRAINER BOYZ BARREL IS FULL OF BAD APPLES.
* CANYON SPA RANCH RESORT IS A SUPER NICE PLACE TO SPEND A WEEK.
The Trainers Show compliance rate was a dismal 88%
More than 1 in every 10 Horses was sore.
The “manufactured” bogus claims of 98.6% compliance that sore PSHA and sore Big Lick Celebration Chairman David L. Howard along with Representative Marsha Blackburn claim was blown sky high.
Here are the Numbers:
227 TOTAL HORSES
TOTAL HORSES IN RING – 227
NON BIG LICK HORSES – –42 (Pleasure/Model/Halter/Lead Line)
BIG LICK HORSES SHOWN 185 TOTAL BIG LICK HORSES
SORE BIG LICK HORSES – 8 HPA VIOLATIONS – S.H.O.W. HIO DQPS
10 -20* ESTIMATED HPA VIOLATIONS – USDA VMOS
9.70% – 15.13% AVERAGE 12.40% SORE HORSES
The USDA gave it their best shot. They employed objective scientific methods along with proven inspection methods. They stayed on top of the S.H.O.W. HIO DQPS and went out to watch Horses being exhibited, and took Horses off the trailers and the barns.
They did an admirable job.
Yet, it was proven once and for all that the Walking Horse Trainer BOYZ cannot comply with the Horse Protection Act.
It will never happen.
David L. Howard‘s system and business model won’t let them. The customers won’t let them. The SORE Tennessee Walking Horse Celebration represented by Pat Marsh and John T. Bobo won’t let them. Sore Big Lick advocates Steve Smith and Walt Chism at the breed registry won’t let them.
The sore Big Lick is deader than a dodo bird.
The Public has completely deserted it.
The empty seats all three nights tell the tale.
And the Big Lick Trainer BOYZ failed miserably to go Sound.
You can look no further than the Trainers Show exhibition of the reigning 2013 World Grand Champion “I AM JOSE”. This Horse is the Ambassador for the Tennessee Walking Horse in the eyes of sore Big Lick Horse Advocates David L. Howard, John T. Bobo, Steve Smith and Walt Chism.
“I AM JOSE” WAS TERRIBLY BAD IMAGE – BOTH WAYS OF THE RING
Thank goodness that the University of Tennessee of which U. S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) was the President has chosen to go another direction at its Homecoming football game.
And there were plenty more TRAINERS SHOW bad image sonuvaguns:
It is crystal clear that only thing which will work to protect The Horses is passage of the PAST ACT.
- Remove the pads and chains.
- Eliminate the corruption prone HPA system.
- Make Horse Soring a federal felony.
David L. Howard does NOT want soring eliminated – He wants it regulated so the Cash Cow can be fed. To pay for Canyon Ranch and no telling what else.
The American people need to get behind the USDA to protect The Horses, and the Representatives and U. S. Senators to pass the PAST ACT.
Both are urgent matters.
