SHELBYVILLE, TN – The May 30-31, 2014, Columbia Spring Jubilee was the tell-tale sign that APHIS Administrator Kevin Shea was, once again, going to cow tow to sore Big Lick pressure. He and Chester Gipson are co-conspirators in the USDA placating the sore Big Lick.
Shea and Gibson enforcement of the Horse Protection Act is so inconsistent that it would be laughable if it weren’t so sad, and the horses were not being hurt.
It was confirmed at three more shows over the 4th of July weekend:
July 3 – Christmas in July
July 4 – Money Tree Classic (Trainer’s Auxiliary)
July 5 – Woodbury Lions Club Horse Show
It was business as usual for the Lickers
They sat them down deep, and let them “Walk On”.
The Edwards Boyz came in from South Georgia and the Baucoms came in from North Carolina.
They all had a big ole time.
Kevin Shea and Chester Gipson, DVM have no intention to eliminate soring by enforcing the Horse Protection Act.
More to come on USDA getting in bed with the sore Big Lick.
