ASHEVILLE, NC – This past weekend the “Big Lick Big Lie” sore Big Lick Tennessee Walking Show Horses were on display at the “North Carolina Championship” held at the West Carolina Agricultural Center near Asheville, North Carolina. According to MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University) Horse Science Faculty member Dr. John Haffner:
Interestingly, the public rejected the Big Lick in Asheville as reflected by this picture. Attendance appeared to be off substantially from the 2013 Asheville show when an overflow crowd was in attendance.

Meanwhile, Nephew Eugene is hearing that a major controversy is brewing in North Carolina over the State of North Carolina sanctioning the exhibition of Big Lick Tennessee Walking Horse classes at the “N.C. State Fair” in Raleigh, North Carolina set for Friday, Saturday, October 17 – 18, 2014.
A Change.Org Petition urging “CANCEL TENNESSEE WALKING HORSE PERFORMANCE CLASSES AT THE NC STATE FAIR” now has 2,016 signatures. It is addressed to Wesley Wyatt, Manager of the NC State Fair.
Mr. Wyatt works under the supervision of the North Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture Steve Troxler, a tobacco farmer, who upon being inaugurated, drove his tractor from the NC State Fairgrounds to his office in Raleigh.
All American Walking Horse Alliance organizer Jeannie McGuire of Unionville, Virginia, said, “We are concerned about the situation in North Carolina, and we are gathering information regarding it. We will soon have a complete statement on the matter. We are proud that two of the horses and exhibitors at the historic “Walk On Washington”were from the State of North Carolina”.

All American Walking Horse Alliance Media Representative Clant M. Seay said, “We are proud that the State of Kentucky does not allow the Big Lick Tennessee Walking Horse (pads and chains) at its famous Kentucky Horse Park.” Seay praised the USEF (United States Equestrian Federation), for no longer allowing Tennessee Walking Horses to be exhibited in stacks/pads and chains at its sanctioned events. The USEF is the National Governing Body For Equestrian Sport, which selects the U. S. Olympic Equestrian team, Seay cited a USEF sanctioned event, the prestigious Germantown (Tennessee) Charity Horse Show, as an example where in 2013 the show officials banned the Big Lick Tennessee Walking Horses from showing for the first time in its 65-year history. Seay said, “One sore horse is one sore horse too many”.
CURRENT STATE OF THE SORE BIG LICK TENNESSEE WALKING HORSE
The sore Big Lick is on the ropes after having a Horrific Celebration:
- Celebration attendance down by 70%
- AUGUST 29, 2014 THE TENNESSEAN “VET SAYS HE TURNED DOWN INSPECTION JOB”. The 76 Annual Celebration suffered a scandal when the Celebration Chairman David L. Howard and “VAC” Spokesperson Tom Blankenship were caught lying that the most important member of “VAC”, former Budweiser Clydesdale vet Dr. Dallas O. Goble, was not even part of it.
And the All American Walking Horse Alliance representative discussed matters with “VAC” Spokesperson Tom Blankenship at the Celebration on August, 29, 2014:
- FOLLOW THE MONEY FROM STEVE SMITH TO U. S. SENATOR LAMAR ALEXANDER (R-TN); CELEBRATION CHAIRMAN DAVID L. HOWARD TO “VAC” OFFICIALS TOM BLANKENSHIP AND DR. JERRY JOHNSON
- Image of 2 Year Old collapsing in Line-up, then being kicked by trainer.
- Celebration Chairman David L. Howard welcomes Cock Fighter B. L. Cozad, Jr. to speak as honored guest to Celebration patrons in the Celebration’s Hall of Fame Club preaching that “Horse Soring Is A Victimless Crime”:
- THE TENNESSEAN – “SORING REPORTS NEARLY DOUBLE”
Since the Celebration, the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) on October 1, 2014, provided the 2012 and 2013 “USDA CELEBRATION INSPECTION RESULTS” which destroyed the 96% – 98% Horse Protection Act compliance lies by Celebration Chairman David L. Howard, TWHBEA President Steve Smith, PSHA Spokesperson Jeffrey Howard, and repeated by elected officials: U. S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN).
Now America will focus on the N. C. State Fair to see how the State of North Carolina can host and sanction a Big Lick Tennessee Walking Horse Show at its State Fair where sored and abused Big Lick Tennessee Walking Horses will be offered for exhibition with stacks/pads and chains.
North Carolina is a state where U.S. Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC), and 7 of 11 U. S. Representatives all co-sponsor the PAST ACT. There are presently 305 U.S. Representatives (70%) and 59 U. S. Senators co-sponsoring the PAST ACT.
The North Carolina U. S. Representative PAST ACT supporters include:
- G. K. Butterfield – 1st District – Democrat
- Renee Elmers – 2nd District – Republican
- Walter Jones, Jr. – 3rd District – Republican
- David Price – 4th District – Democrat
- Howard Coble – 6th District – Democrat
- Mike McIntyre – 7th District – Democrat
- Mark Meadows – 11th District – Republican
N.C. STATE FAIR TENNESSEE WALKING HORSE SHOW – OCT. 17 & 18
Nephew Eugene says stay tuned on this one.
