LEWISBURG, TN – On Monday, September 15, 2014,  the BIG LICK POWER GRAB attempt will begin.    A By-Laws change will be mailed to the 5,458+/-  eligible to vote TWHBEA members with the future of the official Tennessee Walking Horse breed registry in the balance.  TWHBEA has lost 1,492 members in the past 12 months – over 22% loss.

TWHBEA members will have a choice:

  • ACCEPT ALL BY LAW CHANGES.
  • DO NOT ACCEPT ANY BY LAW CHANGES.

If the TWHBEA members vote to accept ALL By Law changes,   the following will result:

The sore Big Lick gang of Steve Smith, Walt Chism and By Laws VP Tom “I’M A PROUD HPA VIOLATOR” Kakassy are betting that the TWHBEA members  will ACCEPT ALL BY-LAW CHANGES.

TOM KAKASSY - TWHBEA BY LAWS VP

TOM KAKASSY – TWHBEA BY LAWS VP

If so, the following “BIG LICK POWER GRAB” will be a fait accompli.

The Black States will no longer have a Director.   The Red States will have more Directors.

WWW.BILLYGOBOY.COM focused attention this week that,  unfortunately and disappointingly,  the “Sound Horse” Directors of the Black States have done virtually nothing since the semi-annual May Directors to  demand any type of accountability of the sore Big Lick TWHBEA management regarding the TWHBEA membership being provided with currrent Financial Statements or Membership numbers.

It remains to be seen if a timely effective campaign will be mounted to beat back the BIG LICK POWER GRAB from taking place.

For sure,  it will take a lot more energy, tenacity and competence than has been shown to date.

And time is of the essence.a

Can the BIG LICK POWER GRAB be defeated?

A year ago,  “The Poll”,   where courageous TWHBEA VP Pat Stout,  with the assistance of an anonymous donor, allowed the 6,950 eligible to vote members of TWHBEA members an opportunity to express their opinion,   “YES” or “NO” on passage of the PAST ACT.    A landslide 63% voted “YES” to pass the PAST ACT.  The turnout was an impressive 26% of the TWHBEA membership.

The people in charge of that effort knew the stakes and the TWHBEA members rallied to the cause in expressing their mandate to remove the pads and chains and end the sore Big Lick Tennessee Walking Horse.

“The Poll” turned the sore Big Lick Tennessee Walking Horse world on its ear.

It also let America  and  the United States Congress,  American Horse Council,  United States Equestrian Federation,  American Veterinary Medical Association,  American Association of Equine Practitioners ALL know that the ordinary  dues paying members of the official breed registry wanted the pads and chains removed from the Tennessee Walking Horse.  They voted “YES” to Pass The Past Act.

Nephew Eugene says it will be interesting to see if the Sound Horse Directors, who are about to be “BLACKED OUT” by the “BIG LICK POWER GRAB”, can defeat Big Lickers Steve Smith, Walt Chism and Tom “I’M A PROUD HPA VIOLATOR” Kakassy in a head to head challenge for survival.
