And  “Out Of Touch” Celebration Chairman David L. Howard has now personally attacked Journalist Jolley and accused her of “taking the easy way out” on doing the story.

Chairman Howard has every reason to be concerned because the YOUTUBE could push the PAST ACT over the top.

THE SORE BIG LICKER GAME PLAN

When Mary Ann hit Bedford County,  the sore Big Lickers huddled up and came up with their Game Plan.   True Blue Licker Sheryl Crawford would put out front her likable good old boy charming Trainer BOYZ Winky Groover and her farm as the “Face, Voice And Setting Of The Big Lick”.

Winky had done a good job of leading neophyte Knoxville WATE Channel Six Reporter Jill McNeal off into the weeds on an earlier March television piece.   There was no way the glib Winkster would not be able to do it again.  Winky give young naive Jill a song and dance about not soring horses.  Jill McNeal had not done her homework and she didn’t realize Groover had about 18 HPA violation citations on his record.  Winky made her look silly.

Sheryl Crawford  who put on the TTEC Conference in Murfreesboro, Tennessee in 2012,  and with the dedication of a Jim Jones Follower who truly believes that you can have the sore Big Lick without soring,  Sheryl serves a lot of Licker Kool Aide to anyone who will drink it.

Among other things,  Sheryl Crawford was part of TWHBEA President Steve Smith’s “Hurry Up” Lynch Mob Subcommittee formed in December 2013 to recommend the suspension of Pat Stout’s TWHBEA membership privileges for Stout’s not cooperating with a “Witch Hunt” investigation into her courageously  Polling the members of the Tennessee Walking Horse breed registry on how they felt about passage of the PAST ACT.  Stout had been exonerated of any wrong doing by the previous Executive Committee.

The TWHBEA members voted landslide 63% “YES” For Passage of the PAST ACT.

So the Big Lickers,  Celebration Chairman David, Sheryl and Winky put their plan in motion.

What happened was Celebration Chairman Howard,  TTEC Big Lick Lady Sheryl, and suave and debonair Winky ran up against a seasoned pro in Harvard  Nieman Award winning Journalist Mary Ann Jolley.  The cocky Lickers didn’t realize who the skinny lady with the smile and the camera was.  Mary Ann was the key interviewer of Julian Assange of WikiLeaks.  This was not her first rodeo.  She had been in Ethiopia and places all around the globe – places where she was in personal danger.

The Big Lick scene was a piece of cake.

So while the three  Lickers fed her a line while head faking,   bobbing and weaving,  Mary Ann cooly played along while doing her due diligence to capture the essence of the WALK OF SHAME”.

CUTTING TO THE CHASE – MARY ANN’S VISIT TO THE NATIONAL TRAINERS SHOW

Mary Ann Jolley followed Winky Groover’s truck and trailer from Sheryl Crawford’s Barn to the Celebration Grounds.  She was present filming when Winky’s horse was turned down.  She documented all of it.   She listened to Winky’s side of it, and she then consulted with USDA expert Dr. Tracy Turner, who conducted the Objective Science Based Inspection by use of Thermography.  Here is the proof showing the disqualification of Groover’s horse for violating the Scar Rule which is evidence the finding of Soring was valid:

 Winky told Mary Ann in his best good old boy earnest drawl:

“As you can see, this horse is free from blemishes of any kind.   I don’t think he is out.  That’s where we are running into a subjective inspection. One man has say so of putting you out and he put him out and he put him out for the whole show.That horse is not a sore horse ““ not an abused animal ““   so here we go again.”

Then Mary Ann got down to business and asked Winky the $64,000.00 Question about whether Winky had ever put chemicals on a horse’s legs to sore it.   And Winky gave his best effort, and in doing so,  appeared to be hugely deceptive saying something about some “35 years ago” yada yada,  and mumbling “kerosene – something – diesel”.   Mary Ann then detailed that forgetful Winky had over 20 HPA violation citations on his record.

(BGB Comment:   Winky Groover is just like all the other Trainer BOYZ working for Big Lick Addicts who he has to please.   Trainer BOYZ Winky, like Mickey, Link, Justin, Charlie and the Wright brothers all just want to know one thing –

  • What is the speed limit?
  • How fast can I go without getting a ticket?

“How Sore Can A Horse Be And Still Be ‘Compliant'”?

Definition of “Compliant”  – “Able To  Do The Big Lick And Still Pass Inspection”.

And the definition of a “Compliant Horse” is a  sore  Horse that can pass inspection.)

Back to the Story:

So following the Trainers Show and the Sound Horse Conference,   Mary Ann went out to California and visited with Priscilla Presley who told her why she was involved in supporting the PAST ACT.

And Mary Ann got pictures never seen before:

Celebration Chairman David L. Howard realizes he has a REAL PROBLEM with Mary Ann.

This is a National and an International Story, and Jolley has connected the dots in her  17 minute explosive expose’ which captures all the elements:

  • Sound Winky getting caught with a sore horse.
  • Objective Science Based Inspection used to catch him.
  • The lying and addictive state of the sore Big Lick.
  • Inspections are already Science Based and Objective, i. e., Thermography.

Celebration Chairman/WHR Publisher David L. Howard has jumped in trying to discredit Jolley’s work, and tell his Big Lick Addict Advertisers something to keep them showing and advertising.

Howard criticizes Jolley for taking the  “easy way out”  with her story.  Chairman Howard apparently expected Jolley to produce a piece about how the training the sore Big Lick horse is being  “done the right way”.

According to David L. Howard, that was the story line – not the damning expose’ Jolley related to the world.

According to David L. Howard,  here is what Mary Ann was supposed to ignore:

  • Priscilla Presley had gotten out front earnestly lobbying Congressmen and Senators to support the PAST ACT.
  • Presley had withdrawn the Elvis Presley Trophy from the Celebration.
  • The advance of Science Based Objective Inspections that #OUTOFTOUCHALEXANDER and #SOREMITCH say should be used.
  • The personal threats made to Humane official Keith Dane at the Trainer’s Show occurring  in Mary Ann’s presence,  when a Licker Yahoo accosted Dane on Celebration property and told him    “You better get the Hell out of here – hit the road”.

  • The presentation at the Sound Horse Conference made by USDA Consultant Dr. Tracy Turner on Thermography which illustrated the use by the USDA of Objective Science Based Inspections to discover soring. In the video,  Dr. Turner explained how the POST show examination can detect scars by use of Thermography.   Below on the horse’s pastern is the red part which is the normal heat generated through exercise, then the white part which shows corrugated SCARS.

Ironically,  Celebration Chairman Howard fails to mention that his son Jeffrey Howard, Editor of the Walking Horse Report attended the  Sound Horse Conference.

JEFFREY HOWARD - ATTENDING SOUND HORSE CONFERENCE

JEFFREY HOWARD – ATTENDING SOUND HORSE CONFERENCE

Jeffrey Howard has yet to report to any of The Walking Horse Report readers anything he learned at the  Sound Horse Conference.   In fact,  Jeffrey Howard has not even informed his sore Big Lick Addict Reader/Advertisers that he even attended the  Sound Horse Conference which was organized by Lori Northrup,  former President of FOSH.

Celebration Chairman David L. Howard apparently wanted Mary Ann to do an upscale WHATTAJAYROE take of SoreField County.

And truly delusionally, Chairman Howard writes:

“Help the industry to eliminate any unsound horse”.

When you have the Celebration owned S.H.O.W. HIO DQPs arguing with and defying the directives of USDA Veterinary Medical Officers about the enforcement of the Horse Protection Act during a Horse Show,  that probably isn’t going to happen.

Big picture, what Celebration Chairman David L. Howard and the rest of the  sore  Big Lick Addicts really want:

  • Continue the charade of being in charge of clearing up soring Horses.  ONE HIO and ONE Board in charge of it, both of which they control.
  • Continue showing “Compliant” sore Big Lick Horses,  scarred or not.

So  Chairman David L. Howard  can get back to having those  $3,000,000.00+  gross sales years for The Walking Horse Report.

Starting with 2014,  Nephew Eugene thinks those days are gone for good.
