POPE’S CAFE – In an exciting sight to behold Sister Laura LuLu came down to the front of the assembled “Lickers” at Pope’s Cafe and spake the gospel:
Her words washed over the parishioners, as Sister LuLu testified from her heart that she had first started showing when she was a child of 7 years and was now a senior senior citizen approaching her 80th summer.
LuLu confessed that what she was going to say to “The Lickers” at Pope’s, she could not put on Facebook because her non-Big Lick addicted friends (all 4 of them) would not understand what she was saying.
She said her Facebook people are always calling on Prayers for this and that, so she wanted to make a “Prayer Request”.
Laura LuLu asked her fellow Pope’s “Big Lick Addicts” to please pray for “their” Trainer BOYZ to haul “their” Tennessee Walking Horses to the show “like they are supposed to be taken there” so everyone can keep on showing.
LuLu said soring was an habitual addiction, and it’s almost impossible to be cured. She said based on her 73 years of show ring experience, the horses were “looking better” than they ever had.
LuLu testified that the great padded and chained horses like “I Am Jose” and “Walk Time Charlie” would ‘kick butt’ if they took the shoes off and showed them “Flat”. She warned “The Flatters” that they better watch out what they were wishing for and they better pray that day never came.
You must understand that Sister Laura LuLu, with her value system and lifetime addiction, that showing horses is an extremely large thing. And so to be threatened to have your butt kicked (soundly defeated) in show ring competition (for Laura LuLu) is about as bad as it gets.
Then Sister LuLu draw audible gasps when she told “The Lickers” that she was sick and tired of being sick and tired of everyone saying that “the USDA was picking on the “Big Lickers”.
LuLu said the only people the “The Lickers” have to blame are “The Lickers” themselves.
Then she got off into talking about getting the few “bad apple” Trainers to do things the right way. The only thing that poor addicted Sister LuLu refuses to recognize or simply cannot see is that the entire barrel of apples is bad, namely these Trainer BOYZ:
- At least 117 known citations for violations of the Horse Protection Act have been issued to members of the 2014 Walking Horse Trainers Association board of directors, by either the USDA or Horse Industry Organization inspectors.
- W.H.T.A. Board HPA Citation Tallies
- Mickey McCormick: 24 known citations
- David Landrum: 6 known citations
- Bill Cantrell: 10 known citations
- Edgar Abernathy: 9 known citations
- Jeff Green: 28 known citations
- Link Webb: 39 known citations
- Ross Campbell: 1 known citation
- W.H.T.A. Board HPA Citation Tallies
Sister LuLu seems to have a blind spot as to how deeply that the evil sore Big Lick Addiction is ingrained in the afflicted.
Barring the parting of the Red Sea, there is simply no hope that things will ever change without removing the Pads and Chains which is exactly what the PAST ACT will do.
Sister LuLu inveighed the “Lickers” to “Come Together” or talking to Senators and Representatives would be a “waste of money”.
“One thing I can tell you is you got to be free – Come together right now over me” – John
Sister LuLu closed with a stern intonation, again obviously still in the clutches of her lifetime addiction, that she said it was self-defeating for everyone to load up their horses and go home when the USDA was present at a horse show.
She rhetorically asked: What message did they expect that to send?
It should be noted that Sisters Sirelle and Wallinda were upset with what Sister Laura LuLu had to say. They were contemplating intervention or kidnapping.
Waitress Lorena says she has never seen anything quite like what Sister LuLu laid down.
Beezle passed out about half way through what Laura LuLu’s message and had to be revived. He was afraid to share the news with Boab because he was pretty fragile these days, and knew the effect of what Sister Laura LuLu would have on him.
Someone suggested sending a “Benevolence Committee” to do out reach with the missing David L. Howard and son Jeffrey, but no one has any idea where they have gone. Some said the Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, Georgia, and others said “Off Shore”. One person said the family’s Cash Cow, “Cha Ching”, seems to be losing weight.
Over in Lewisburg, Steve “UR” Smith is looking to blame TWHBEA VP Fiscal Affairs Christy Lantis for the terrible TWHBEA financial numbers that will have to be made public by the May TWHBEA Directors Meeting. Normally, the numbers are made available to the Association’s Directors every month, but the last time anyone has seen any numbers was January 2014 – and they were dire.
No one knows for sure, but things are expected to become more and more grim as the donut rationing does not seem to be helping the Association’s bottom line. And no one appears to be breeding any mares in Spring 2014.
Nephew Eugene is not sure where Sister Laura LuLu got the inspiration for the “Come Together” appeal, however, one of Eugene’s Celebration barn help friends, Jesus, showed Eugene the attached “Notice” which is the 24th call for a TRAINER BOYZ LIVILEHOOD MEETING in the last 12 months..
This one is styled “COME TOGETHER” and “WE HAVE TO ACT AS ONE”.
Nephew Eugene says that sounds like “TRAINER BOYZ” talk for BOYCOTTING.
It is not clear whether or not Sister Laura LuLu will be invited by the TRAINER BOYZ to provide the Prayer to open the meeting. They are as steadfast in their praying as they are in their “fixing”.
Nephew Eugene says he wishes they would just leave the religion out of it and stop soring horses. And he would like to see if “I Am Jose” could kick some butt in a “Flatter” class.
Nephew Eugene says it’s even money the Trainer BOYZ will vote to boycott the 2014 Show Season. Eugene is sweating his Celebration barn help job for sure.
The 20,000 Trainer BOYZ (and women) ain’t seen no part of that $3.2 Billion those $17,000.00 a month folks, Phil Osborne and Jeff Speaks, like to talk about. Speaks and Osborne were hired by David L. Howard and son Jeffrey to replace Purple Strategies and PSHA Executive Director Kathleen Spears from Lexington, Kentucky.
There’s going to be some interesting days ahead:
- Washington, DC
- Panama City, Florida (Reptile Gardens & Trainer BOYZ Vacation)
- Champions Arena – Celebration grounds
- Lewisburg, TN – TWHBEA Headquarters
- Inspection Areas All Across America
- USDA Enforcement of the Horse Protection Act
- Trainer BOYZ headquarters
- DABORA, Inc.
- Theta/National/International news coverage – sore “Big Lick” death throes.
