Published on Oct 24, 2016
“Here the 2016 “Big Lick” World Grand Champion Tennessee Walking Horse attempts to “Canter”. Merriam Webster defines a “Canter” as “a 3-beat gait resembling but smoother and slower than the gallop.” What you are seeing here from “Honors” is anything but smooth. Some might have the opinion that it looks “painful and ugly”. Please note the severity of the bit shanks, the size of the platform stack shoes and the chain on the front feet.”
Another significant development on Tuesday, October 25, 2016, was an impressive bipartisan group of 181 members of the U. S. House of Representatives on Monday “strongly” urged U. S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack to “expeditiously finalize” the Rule (to abolish ‘Big Lick’ Animal Cruelty) before President Barack Obama leaves Office. Here is a copy of the letter.
The first signature on the letter is Tea Party conservative Republican Ted Yoho (R-FL) who is shown meeting here with CCABLAC in Washington planning strategy on ending “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty. And the second is Democrat Kurt Schrader (D-OR) Deputy Chief of Staff. Their remarkable bipartisan coopeation in this effort shows that Secretary Tom Vilsack’s proposed Rule is the Will of the American people. #LetsBackVilsack
