ASHEVILLE, NC – On Thursday, Oct. 5, 2017, Citizens Campaign Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty (CCABLAC) Animal Welfare Advocates peacefully assembled at the Western NC AG Center and protested the Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”) being shown inside McGough Arena.
These people from all ages and walks of life represented the hundreds of thousands of persons all over America and the World opposing the systemic institutionalized mistreatment of Tennessee Walking Horses in the name of family entertainment, charity or “sport”. MTSU Horse Science Professor Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner says the “Big Lick”
“is a business built on the suffering and pain of horses.”
The Asheville – North Carolina public was having no part of the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses, on either Thursday, Oct. 5, and or Friday, Oct. 6, as these videos prove:

IS THIS 1985 OR 2017??? BAD IMAGE??? ANIMAL CRUELTY????
Nephew Eugene says the “Big Lick” folks are now down to just having a Horse Show for themselves, but slowly the light is coming on that NO ONE is coming any more. Here are a couple of excerpts from The Walking Horse Report (Fake News) website message board under a thread “Bringing the crowds back to the Celebration” – One says, You need to get spectators in the habit of attending again. The whole family needs to come.” Another: “Needs more POSITIVE press to get the fans back”.
This year The Tennessean newspaper (Nashville, TN) did not send a Reporter to cover the Final Night of the Tennessee Waking Horse National Celebration for the first time since the 1950s.
The remaining “Lickers”, i.e. Asheville and the Celebration in Shelbyville, TN, are in a state of denial. For all practical purposes, CCABLAC, “WE, The People”, with a nationwide grassroots movement supported by people all over America and the World, have brought the “Big Lick” to the point of its extinction. They have done it by invoking the First Amendment right to peacefully assemble and protest the Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses, and urging the public to BOYCOTT any “Big Lick” events whoever they are located. CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocates take videos in order to educate and inform the public, and under the Freedom of the Press set out in the First Amendment to the U. S. Constitution, BillyGoBoy.Com website publication has published these videos, and they have been seen conservatively about 25 Million Times.
Editor’s Note: At the Asheville, NC Horse Show on Thursday, October 5, 2017, a 15-year-old juvenile who was attending the horse show became overwhelmed with emotion, and he entered the Show Ring while a class was being concluded, and he made a statement against the Animal Cruelty. CCABLAC condemns that action which was potentially disruptive to the horse show. A CCABLC spokesperson made it clear to the representatives of the Buncombe County, NC Sheriff Department that the Citizens Campaign Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty (CCABLAC) had nothing whatsoever to do with the juvenile’s action, and CCABLAC did not condone it in any way. Earlier that afternoon, the young man protested with the CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocates outside the Horse Show. Following the event at the Horse Show, the minor was sent home by local law enforcement, and told not to return to the event. CCABLAC supports the Buncombe County, NC Sheriff Department in taking this action. It also recognizes that being 15 years old is not the same as being an adult, and the juvenile in question has enormous potential as he continues to mature and follow his dream of eliminating Animal Cruelty from the face of the earth. but what he did on October 5, 2017, inside the Western NC AG Center was blatantly wrong.
