HERE IS SENIOR STATESMAN GOV. WINFIELD DUNN’S LETTER CALLING FOR PASSAGE OF THE PAST ACT – BLAMES “FALSE PRIDE AND AMBITION” FOR PHYSICAL MISTREATMENT AND PAIN WHICH CHARACTERIZE THE SORE BIG LICK TENNESSEE WALKING HORSE

THETA, TN –  Former Governor Winfield Dunn is a Tennessee Hero.

He is a prophet with honor in his Volunteer State of Tennessee and throughout America.

Unlike U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Governor Dunn is not “bought and paid for” by the irascible politically consumed Steve Smith.

With absolutely nothing to gain other than the satisfaction of taking the only right position on the issue of removing the pads and chains to end the pain and abuse of Tennessee Walking Horses,  Governor Winfield Dunn has risen to the occasion and eloquently delivered the following message:

WINFIELD C. DUNN

July 24, 2014

 

 

Honorable Ed Whitfield, MC

U. S. House of Representatives

2184 Rayburn Building

Washington, D. C.   20515

 

Dear Congressman Whitfield:

 

I write this message to endorse and offer my support for your proposed legislation, HB 1518. You are due total gratitude from animal lovers and Walking Horse owners across our nation.  As a former Governor of Tennessee and Walking Horse owner I fully appreciate your courage and commitment toward the breed and the magnificent animals which make it up.

 

Regrettably, past practices involving false pride and ambition have led us to a point where physical mistreatment and pain now characterize an industry and a pastime which Tennesseans and horse lovers everywhere have treasured over the years.  The abuse and suffering which these innocent and loyal animals now experience every day must be brought to an end.  I have made my feelings known to members of the Tennessee delegation.

 

I look forward to a day, very soon, when walking horse enthusiasts, both pleasure seekers and competitors, can enjoy the beauty and naturalness of the horse.  Your efforts toward those goals will earn the gratitude of animal lovers everywhere.  I congratulate you, wish you every success and stand ready to support you and others as you move forward.

 

Most earnestly,

 

 

Winfield Dunn
