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.

https://www.change.org/p/wesley-wyatt-cancel-tennessee-walking-horse-performance-classes-at-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.

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).
