THETA, TN – As the sore Big Lick show season is unfolding like a frost bitten daffodil,  it appears to be iceberg gashed and listing to starboard.

THE “BIG LICK” ADDICTION

It’s truly all about the next “hit” for a person addicted to the sore Big Lick.

  • Formerly popular Big Lick internet message board site takes a leave of absence.
  • David L. Howard’s The Walking Horse Report March 31, 2014 issue is down to 24 pages, with several key ad slots going unsold. For some strange reason, Editor Jeffrey Howard chose to list all the U. S. elected officials who are co-sponsoring the PAST ACT, and keeps on tilting at the Humane Society windmill when the sore Big Lick’s real problem is the strong support of the PAST ACT by the American Horse Council, and veterinary groups AVMA and AAEP. Howard’s tilting sort of reminds one of Mussolini attacking Ethiopia.
