MR. FRANK EICHLER, MR. DAVID WILLIAMS, MR. DICK PEEBLES, MR. JEFF MITCHELL – ALL BED PARTNERS IN “THE MIDDLE TENNESSEE CIRCLE OF ANIMAL CRUELTY” SUMMED UP AS “BIG LICK, BIG LIE”

COLUMBIA, TN –  Here is the headline from the  front page of the Sunday edition of The Columbia Daily-Herald newspaper:

No horsing around: Tennessee Walking Horse industry cannot afford any more cheating

The D-H article said, “Tennessee Walking Horse supporters know they need to weed out the rule breakers, the trainers who care more about winning than the horses. Then cannot afford another misstep, in the arena or outside of it.”

 Mr. Frank Eichler’s Rising Star Ranch Farm Manager Mr. David Williams was quoted in the article saying,      “We are a competitive entity, and with any competitive entity, people look for an advantage”, Walking Horse breeder David Williams of Shelbyville said. “I hope it never happens again. We are regulated and transparent. We are open to anyone who wants to inspect our horses.”

So what does Mr. Williams employer,  Mr. Frank Eichler  PSHA (Performance Show Horse Association) Attorney,   do “to make sure it never happens again”.

Interestingly,  here is what PSHA (Performance Show Horse Association) says it is about:

(PSHA is not only a watch dog group on legislative matters adversely affecting horse industries but also a driving force for proactive show horse legislation. Our goal is to stabilize the competition in the show ring by ensuring uniform and fair standards of competition,  while keeping the welfare of the horse in the forefront.”)

Mr. Frank M. Eichler had to choose between “keeping the welfare of the horse in the forefront” and “looking for an advantage”.

Mr. Eichler apparently chose  “looking for advantage“, because he   hired  Mr. Dick Peebles a/k/a Richard Peebles as his Horse Trainer.

At the Friday, April 23, 2015,    “Gulf Coast Charity Horse Show”(Columbia version),  (which on Saturday, April 24, 2015 became the “Gulf Coast Charity Horse Show” (Shelbyville version),   Mr. Dick Peebles put five Horses in the show ring for Mr. Frank Eichler’s  Rising Star Ranch.

Here is a HPA Soring Notice issued to Mr. Dick Peebles by USDA-APHS for apparently “SORING” a Horse named “The Strawberry Dollar”.

“The Strawberry Dollar”   is owned by a gentleman named Mr. Jeff Mitchell from Pulaski, Tennessee.  Apparently,  “The Strawberry Dollar” has the misfortune of being “SORE” a lot probably because somebody, in the words of Mr. David Williams, is looking “for an advantage.”

On April 14, 2015,  nine days before the Columbia Horse Show,  Giles County, Tennessee Sheriff Kyle Helton seized  55  blue blood  starving Tennessee Walking Horses, many of them mares in foal to World Champion stallions standing at Mr. Frank Eichler’s Rising Star Ranch which is managed by Mr. David Williams.

These abused horses were owned by  Mr. Jeff Mitchell,  a pharmacist from Lynnville, Tennessee who now lives at Pulaski, Tennessee.  He faces 55 felony charges of aggravated animal cruelty. (Mr. Mitchell is afforded the presumption of innocence.)

Successful businessman Mr. Frank Eichler is a relative newcomer to the “Big Lick” world, but he’s been around long enough to know that Trainer BOYZ Mr. Dick Peebles was suspended for five years in 2007 by the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association for alleged soring abuse, but then he was quietly reinstated sometime in 2009 without public announcement or explanation.

Radar says that Mr. Frank Eichler,  Mr. David Williams,  Mr. Dick Peebles and Mr. Jeff Mitchell can all be summed up as:

 Nephew Eugene wonders if  Columbia Dailey Herald is going to take Mr. David Williams at face value the next time he has something to say?
