WASHINGTON, DC – There is NO 98% compliance rate.
It was all a David L. Howard “BIG LICK BIG LIE”.
Just like the missing “VAC” Vet – just like the bogus “Swabbing Initiative”.
All lies and mendacious contumacious conduct by people who apparently think they are above the law or can simply buy who and what they want.
As www.billygoboy.com extrapolated post Celebration 2013, and post 2014 Trainers Show, the “compliance rate” is more like 80%-85% at best which means that 15 of every 100 horses are SORE.
That information was confirmed today when the USDA FINALLY provided its official numbers from the 2014 Celebration.
It would now be nice if the USDA would go back and provide the 2012 and 2013 REAL numbers in this format, rather than the “BLENDED PARTERNSHIP” numbers which allowed “The Horses” to be hurt for two years when they should not have been.
Shame on Chester Gipson, DVM for playing politics for most of his career, and not caring about “The Horses”.
The 2014 numbers confirm all the “Big Lies” perpetrated by David L. Howard and Company.
- 199 USDA “SORES”
- 20 Celebration’s S.H.O.W. HIO “SORES
- 219 Total Violatons/Illegal
2 0F EVERY 10 HORSES WERE SORE.
The USDA numbers prove conclusively to all persons and entities that “Self Regulation” of the sore Big Lick Tennessee Walking Horse will NOT work and never has worked to adequately protect “The Horses”.
Senator Alexander, if you have integrity, the USDA numbers provide the wake up call to let you know that “VAC” Vet Chairman Dr. Jerry Johson and “VAC” Spokesperson Tom Blankenship and Steve Smith have all been lying to you.
Please salvage your bruised integrity and change course.
- 84.6% “alleged” Compliance – over 15 of every 100 Horses are SORE.
- 99.40% Disqualifications are on Big Lick horses.
If you set aside the 84 Scar Rule violations found by the USDA, and just compare the number of Bilateral and Unilateral Sore violations found by USDA vets compared with the Celebration’s S.H.O.W. HIO inspectors, you have:
USDA CELEBRATION/S.H.O.W. HIO
BILATERAL(BOTH FEET) 84 (USDA) 3 (CEL. Inspectors)
UNILATERAL(ONE FOOT) 19 (USDA) 13 (CEL inspectors)
USDA 103 Bilateral/Unilateral
CELEBRATION 16 Bilateral/unilateral
The Celebration’s inspectors were apparently “looking the other way”.
And the USDA vets were doing their jobs.
It appears that the Office of Inspector General report that the DQP program is corrupt is accurate.

#PASSTHEPASTACT and free the Tennessee Walking Horse breed from the addicted and greedy people who are oppressing it for selfish reasons.
