LEWISBURG, TN –   In three short years,   Tennessee “Political Fixer” and former TWHBEA President Mr. Steve Smith,  has created a rip-roaring dumpster fire at TWHBEA.    Now, Mr. Smith apparently wants his close personal friend,  Bill Frist, M.D.,  to come and put the fire out for him.

On December 2, 2016,    Mr. Steve Smith told the assembled “Lickers” at the annual TWHBEA Awards Banquet that Bill Frist, M.D. would “intervene” on behalf of “Project Pegasus”  and use his influence to persuade Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam and his appointee, Agriculture Commissioner Mr. Jai Templeton,   to spend Tennessee Taxpayer money to perpetuate the ‘Big Lick’.  Meanwhile CCABLAC (Citizens Campaign Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty)  was right down the hall at the Marriott Hotel having its Annual Christmas Get-Togther:

On Friday, December 2, 2016, Mr. Steve Smith presented  Bill Frist, M.D.,  the Reese L. Smith Distinguished Award at the TWHBEA Awards Banquet.   This award is given to the individual who best exemplifies the same dedication, commitment, and personal involvement of the late Reese L. Smith, Jr.  Mr. Reese L. Smith, Jr. was the father of Mr. Steve Smith.

On Monday,  December 12, 2016,  Mr. Jeffrey Howard, Publisher of The Walking Horse Report published a photograph of William H. Frist on the entire front cover of The Walking Horse Report newspaper.

On Thursday,  December 15, 2016,  CCABLAC (Citizens Campaign Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty delivered a book containing Change.Org Petition Signatures/Comments (now 8,000+) to the offices of TN Governor Bill Haslam and Agriculture Commissioner Jai Templeton.

“Don’t Spend ONE DIME Of Tennessee Taxpayers Money To Perpetuate “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty”

On Saturday, December 24, 2016,  The Tennessean newspaper published this front page article:


Here is a photograph of TN “Political Fixer” TWHBEA President Mr. Steve Smith and WHR Publisher, Mr. Jeffrey Howard sitting together at the 2015 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration:

Bill Frist, M. D.  has not been around the Tennessee Walking Horse scene for the past 10 years.   Does Mr. Smith believes that his giving close personal friend Bill Frist, M.D,  the Reese L. Smith, Jr. Distinguished Service award that he has “FIXED” things so now Dr. Bill Frist will carry the banner of TWHBEA’s beloved “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty?

Nephew Eugene doesn’t think Dr. Frist,  a medical doctor who is a man of healing,  would do anything in 2017 to lend himself to advance what MTSU Horse Science Professor Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner “is a business built on the suffering and pain of horses”.

Nephew Eugene believes that people from Tennessee, and the 49 other states, and the rest of the World,  need to let Bill Frist, M.D. know how they feel about Dr. Frist pimping for “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty.
