LEWISBURG, TN – In the second installment of the ‘Perils of Pauline’, the TWHBEA Directors on Saturday elected the 2014 – 2015 TWHBEA Executive Committee, which featured a head-on floor fight between two sore Big Lick candidate over which one would be VP – Performance Horse (Big Lick Show Horse Kingfish).
EPISODE 2 SORE BIG LICK FLOOR FIGHT OVER “PERFORMANCE VP” SLOT
Everett “Butch” Allen (Texas) was the choice of the Nominating Committee, but Breeders VP David Williams nominated Ford Gates (Alabama) to fill the slot.
Mr. Gates won over Mr. Allen and will continue as VP – Performance Horse.
Mr. Gates is famous for his Facebook comment, the gist of which was “Don’t Dare Tell Anybody We Fix horses.” Knowledgeable people believe that re-elected TWHBEA Performance Horse VP Mr. Ford Gates’s statement will not help the cause of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breed with the American Horse Council or the United States Equestrian Federation.
EVERETT “BUTCH” ALLEN
It was Mr. Allen’s curiosity at the 2013 TWHBEA meeting when he questioned the veracity of “The Poll” of TWHBEA members by Pat Stout, VP Horse Shows on the PAST ACT. Mr. Allen’s doubts led to a detailed break down of “The Poll” results, state by state, by Cook and Co CPA of Arab, Alabama from which the following “Poll Map” was prepared:
The “Poll Map” is now part of the PAST ACT Congressional record. “The Poll” outcome is now mirrored by over 70% of the U. S. House, and 60 U. S. Senators co-sponsoring the PAST ACT.
