“Healthcare” And “Animal Cruelty To Tennessee Walking Horses (‘Big Lick’)” Are Crucial Issues Facing U. S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) In The Fall Of 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. (c) – Two items landed squarely on U. S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) desk following Labor Day:

  • The future of Healthcare in the United States of America and
  • Animal Cruelty being perpetrated upon Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick) in the State of Tennessee.

Senator Lamar Alexander is doing admirably well in a leadership role in dealing with the – Health Care Crisis”.   He has urged Bipartisan cooperation, open discussion,  and held hearings of the Senate Health, Education Committee with Democrats and Republicans equally participating.

Sadly,  Senator Lamar Alexander (Phi Beta Kappa – Vanderbilt University)  gets a “Failing Grade” on dealing with the stain upon the State of Tennessee that is the Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”).   Senator Alexander apparently does not know that the “Big Lick” gait performed by Tennessee Walking Horses is Animal Cruelty per se – intrinsically – in and of itself.   According to native Tennessean MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University) Horse Science Professor Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner “it is a business built on the suffering and pain of horses”.

This “DoDo Video” –  “Here’s What Soring Does To Horses” – is how approaching      15 MILLION VIEWS since March 2017.  Senator Lamar Alexander needs to look at it to see how the Animal Cruelty to the State Horse is being presented.

 

 

Many of the scenes in this Video were obtained by Citizens Campaign of Animal Cruelty Animal Welfare animal welfare advocates.  The video features an abused “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse named “Gen’s Ice Glimmer”TWHBEA #24704770, Blood Type # TWT050457, were made by CCABLAC (Citizens Campaign Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty) animal welfare advocates in Tennessee,  Mississippi and North Carolina.  Gen’s Ice Glimmer was saved from going to slaughter at Cookeville, TN,  when  CCABLAC and the The Horse Plus Humane Society of Hohenwald, Tennessee partnered to rescue him.

If Senator Lamar Alexander would watch – “Here’s What Soring Does To Horses” – he would understand that   it’s not “Just A Few Bad Apples” which are hurting the Tennessee Walking Horses, and consequently, the entire Volunteer State.

The facts are that the Whole Barrel Of Apples is rotten –

  • Trainer Mr. Bill Callaway,
  • Gen’s Black Maverick Owner Mr. Keith Rosbury,  
  • Celebration Director/Walking Horse Report (“Fake News”) Publisher Mr. Jeffrey Howard,
  • Celebration Judge Mr. David Landrum,
  • TWHBEA Sr. VP Mr. Charles Gleghorn,

They are all rotten to the core where the subject of Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”) is concerned.

So far, Mr. Gleghorn has not done so.

On Thursday, September 14, 2017,  the BillyGoBoy.Com website publication covered the U. S. Senate Health Education Committee Hearing chaired by Senator Lamar Alexander which was held at the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, D. C.

Senator Alexander was at his finest suggesting that Democrats and Republicans sit in one room and listen to knowledgeable persons regarding the Healthcare Crisis and see if a Bipartisan solution could be reached.

The Committee was composed of national leaders including Senators Al Franken (D-MN),  Rand Paul (R-KY), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA),  Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Susan Collins (R-ME),  Tim Kaine (D-VA),  Tim Scott (R-SC) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) and others.

Prior to the Senate Health, Education Committee Hearing on September 14, 2017, at 10:30 A.M.,  CCABLAC made an  appeal at 9:00 A.M.  from the steps of the U. S. Capitol.

 

 

Following the conclusion of the Senate Health,Education Committee Hearing, at approximatley,  CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocate presented information to a member of Senator Lamar Alexander’s staff, and asked for a meeting with the Senator where knowledgeable persons such as Dr. John Haffner,  Mr. Clay Harlin,  Mr. Carl Bledsoe, Ms. Christina Gray and others could meet with Senator Alexander,   and provide him with facts regarding the systemic institutionalized Animal Cruelty To Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”).

WASHINGTON, Sept. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Citizens Campaign Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty (CCABLAC)  delivered CCABLAC’s “Wrong Side Of History” Award to U. S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) for supporting systemic institutionalized Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses.

Presentation:  “Wrong Side Of History” Award

CCABLAC spokesperson Clant M. Seay said Senator Lamar Alexander is sadly doing the bidding of wealthy supporters who have no problems with the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses.

Seay said the owner of “Gen’s Black Maverick”,  World Grand Champion at the 2017 Celebration,  Mr. Keith Rosbury, gave Senator Lamar Alexander a $2,000.00 campaign contribution during Alexander’s 2014 re-election campaign.

Mr. Rosbury’s horse “Gen’s Black Maverick” won the Celebration on September 2, 2017, and then immediately became involved in an Animal Cruelty controversy when Mr. Rosbury’s Trainer, Mr. Bill Callaway, within 24 hours started serving an eight month Federal Suspension for allegedly SORING a Tennessee Walking Horse at the 2016 Celebration.

CCABLAC ran Ads in The Tennessean newspaper before the Celebration asking Tennesseans to boycott the 10 day event. This blog article documents the CCABLAC public protests, and the lack of spectators at the 2017 TWH Celebration:

CCABLAC ADS ran in The Tennessean following the Celebration which documented the Animal Cruelty controversy involving Mr. Rosbury’s horse trainer, Mr. Bill Callaway.

Seay referenced an April 19, 2017, letter signed by Senator Lamar Alexander to a CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocate trying to justify the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty, saying to eliminate the “Big Lick” would hurt Tennessee Agriculture. Alexander also gave a non-applicable baseball analogy about baseball players choosing to take steroids and compared it to the non-elective Animal Cruelty necessary to create and maintain the “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse.

Native Tennessean, MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University) Horse Science Professor Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner, says – “It is a business built on the suffering and pain of horses. The “Big Lick” is a learned response to pain and if horses have not been sored, they do not learn it.”

Here is a video – “Here’s What Soring Does To Horses” –  documenting the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses which has now been viewed almost 15 million times.  Most likely

ANALYSIS – BillyGoBoy.Com,  Publisher

Unfortunately,  Senator Lamar Alexander is not doing as well on the “Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”)” issue, as he is suggesting Bipartisanship on the “Health Care Crisis” facing the American people.

Informed persons believe that  Senator Lamar Alexander does not understand  that in 2017,  the systemized institutionalized abuse inflicted upon Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”) in the State of Tennessee is Animal Cruelty per se, or intrinsically, or in and of itself.    

Native Tennessean MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University) Horse Science Professor Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner says the “Big Lick” perpetrated upon Tennessee Walking Horses “is a business built on the suffering and pain of horses”.  Dr. Haffner doesn’t equivocate about some times or every now and then.  He clearly states it is Animal Cruelty ALL the time.

Regarding “Animal Cruelty” –  a combination of factors presently threaten Senator Alexander’s sterling reputation as a compassionate statesman where the welfare of Tennessee Walking Horses is concerned.

Senator Alexander’s present stance is set out in this April 19, 2017, letter  that he wrote and signed to a CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocate who is a Tennessee resident and his constituent.  For the record, she has not given him a campaign donation.

The letter recipient is a lady who travelled to Washington,  D. C. on March 29, 2017, and she is pictured in this photo.

On March 29, 2017,  CCABLAC delivered 100,000+ Change.Org Petition Signatures and 11,000+ comments to the White House asking the Trump Administration to publish a proposed USDA Federal Regulation in the Federal Register which would remove the “Pads and Chains” and end the Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”).

 

 

The CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocates also met with Republican Ted Yoho (FL) and Democrat Kurt Schrader (OR),  and presented them with CCABLAC “Distinguished Legislative Service” Awards.  Each of these Congressmen are large animal veterinarian who are joint Co-Sponsors of the PAST ACT which would remove the “Pads and Chains” from “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horses to end the Animal Cruelty.

On September 2, 2017,  this lady receiving Senator Alexander’s letter was in this group of  Citizens Campaign Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty (CCABLAC)  Animal Welfare Advocates who stood outside the front gates of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, TN (protected by the officers of the Shelbyville PD) while they exercised their First Amendment rights protesting the Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”).

Two ladies held this sign:

The efforts of CCABLAC (Citizens Campaign Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty) have destroyed the spectator attendance at the annual Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration.   Knowledgeable sources estimate actual attendance of 35,000 – 40,000 at the 10 day event.

Compare thi Friday night, August 25, 2017,  attendance to that of prior years.  The Walking Horse Report (Fake News) stopped publishing the turnstile count in 2013.

This CCABLAC video made on Friday, Aug. 25, 2017,  shows the empty West Grand Stands which seating capacity is 12,000.    The overall first Friday attendance was 15,691 in 2007,  and based on this CCABLAC video,  it was approximately 2,500+/-  on Friday, Aug. 25, 2017.

Here are photos from World Grand Championship – Saturday, September 2, 2017.

 

This video was made on Friday, August 25, 2017.

 

 

Another CCABLAC video which reached approximately 1,400,000 persons  shows the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty on Friday, Aug. 25, 2017:

 

 

  •  Senator Alexander, who will be 78 years old on his next birthday,  has not attended the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration since 1983.  He has referred to it as a “Tennessee Treasure”and “Tennessee Tradition”.   Senator Alexander apparently does not know that in 2017,   Tennesseans responded to Ads run by the Citizens Campaign Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty (CCABLAC)  and overwhelmingly boycotted the event in 2017.

 

 

Another CCABLAC video reached approximately 1,400,000 persons on Friday, Aug. 25, 2017:

 

 

  • Wealthy “Big Lick” supporters have made generous campaign contributions to Senator Alexander’s re-election campaigns, and in return,   the Senator appears to be doing what they want on this issue.

SORING HISTORY  GEN’S BLACK MAVERICK” – Keith & Lorraine Rosbury, Owners

Gen’s Black Maverick is a classic example of a SORE “Big Lick’ Tennessee Walking Horse, and now,  he is 2017 World Grand Champion.

Gen’s Black Maverick” was SORED at the 2012 Mississippi Charity Horse Show  in order to provide a $50,000.00 charitable donation to the University of Mississippi Medical Center Children’s Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi from the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty Mississippi Charity Horse Show in Jackson, MS.

2014 CHARITABLE DONATION – $41,500.00 – UMMC CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL

2012 CHARITABLE DONATION – $50,000.00 – UMMC CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL

The beginning of the end for the Mississippi Charity “Big Lick” Horse Show came on February 28, 2015, when CCABLAC started this Change.Org Petition asking the University of Mississippi Medical Center to saver all ties with the Mississippi “Big Lick” Charity Horse Show.

On March 6, 2017,  UMMC SEVERED ALL TIES WITH THE “BIG LICK” MISSISSIPPI CHARITY HORSE SHOW, AND REFUSED TO ACCEPT A $50,000.00 ANNUAL DONATION


Upon winning the Celebration on “Gen’s Black Maverick” on September 2, 2017,   Mr. Bill Callaway, told the home town Shelbyville Times-Gazette newspaper:

“I would not have this opportunity without Jesus, my family and friends, and the Rosburys”.

Nephew Eugene says the Lord Jesus would not have any part of SORING or harming any of his Father’s  marvelous creations such as the Tennessee Walking Horse.  Hopefully, U. S. Senator Lamar Alexander will give prayerful consideration to getting on the           “Right Side of History”, and no longer defend or aid systemic intrinsic Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”) before the Lord calls him home.

Amen!
