ALL AMERICAN WALKING HORSE ALLIANCE LABELS CELEBRATION’S “VAC” VETERINARY ADVISORY COMMITTEE AS A PUBLIC RELATIONS TOOL FOR “BIG LICK BIG LIE”
SHELBYVILLE, TN ““ “The Celebration’s VAC committee led by Tom Blankenship is nothing than a PR strategy trying to give some respectability to the “BIG LICK BIG LIE”. What you are seeing today is a replay of what happened in 2006. That year Tom Blankenship and two of the same vets now associated with VAC worked with Tennessee Senator Bill Frist to change the definition of SORE and to eliminate the “Scar Rule”. Tom Blankenship led that effort and was backed by the Walking Horse Trainers who regularly sore horses in violation of the Horse Protection Act. The Big Lick Walking Horse supporters spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in 2006, and are doing the same thing this PR tool. They will do anything to maintain the status quo of continuing the Big Lick Big Lie.”
