TUNICA ARENA – HWY 61 – TUNICA, COUNTY, MS – The 2017 TUNICA (MS) – “Delta Fall Classic” Horse Show – sponsored by the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration – was not your 2016 “Delta Fall Classic” Horse Show.
And here’s why:
Tunica County (MS) Sheriff K. C. Hamp was having no part of the “Big Lick” Violence which occurred in 2017. Sheriff Hamp dispatched Tunica Deputy Sheriff Officer Mitchell to be sure that persons exercising their First Amendment rights were protected.
This Nov. 3, 2016, video documents World Champion “Big Lick” Exhibitor Mr. Richard Mitch of Pleasant Hill, MO accelerating and driving his truck directly at four CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocates who were peacefully protesting Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”) at the 2016 Tunica (MS) “Delta Fall Classic” Horse Show.
In 2017, Tunica Arena & Expo Center Manager Mr. Steve Sosebee also erected these concrete barriers to protect the CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocates from “Big Lick” violence while exercising their First Amendment rights of Free Speech and Freedom of the Press at the public owned Tunica County Arena & Expo Center.
This historic CCABLAC Poster was symbolically placed between the concrete barriers.

The CCABLAC Poster was held again in 2016 by a CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocate (pictured below) when Mr. Richard Mitch drove his truck at four CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocates who were peacefully protesting Animal Cruelty against Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”) at Tunica (MS) Arena & Expo Center.
TUNICA ARENA & EXPO CENTER – TUNICA COUNTY, MS – NOVEMBER 2016
A suit for damages was filed on August 23, 2017, by Ms. Sandra L. Culbertson of Clarksville, TN, in the U. S. District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi against World Champion “Big Lick” Exhibitor Mr. Richard Mitch of Pleasant Hill, MO.
In 2017, these CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocates proudly stood outside of the concrete barriers at the Tunica Arena & Expo Center and peacefully exercised their right to Free Speech guaranteed by the U. S. Constitution.
The CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocates now represent over 500,000+ persons in the Citizens Campaign Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty – a National and International, “WE, The People”, movement against Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”).
Advocates proudly stood in the gusting wind to face and protest the “Big Lick” Big Rigs as they brought the Horses onto the TUNICA Arena Show Grounds.
Inside the Tunica Arena, the public responded to the Citizens Campaign Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty appeal by BOYCOTTING the ‘Big Lick” Horse Show – Nov. 2, 2017.
The BillyGoBoy.Com website publication exercised its First Amendment right to Freedom Of the Press to report on the Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”) occurring at the Horse Show. This included making videos and photographs and publishing them on the internet and social media to educate the public.

Here is a Video which gives a view of the Social Life of the “Big Lick” Culture.
It’s a strange sick world in which Big Lick “Multi-Millionaires” like Ms Martha Blackmon Milligan of Panama City, Florida; Mr. Robert Medina of Princeton, New Jersey; Mr. Keith Rosbury of Bell Buckle, TN; and Mr. Duke Thorson of Murfreesboro, TN employ and then consort with the Trainer BOYZ who, according to MTSU Horse Science Professor Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner, SORE the Horses for them so they can get a “Thrill” from having them “Shown”.
Here are candid shots providing an inside view of the “Big Lick Way Of Life”:

Nephew Eugene says it’s obvious when law enforcement posts Police Cruisers outside events at Shelbyville, TN and Tunica, MS, and Arena Managers have to erect concrete barrier to protect American Citizens while exercising their right to free speech, that something is grievously wrong. When state supported institutions of higher learning like the University of Mississippi, and the University of Tennessee, completely disassociate with the Animal Cruelty against Tennessee Walking Horses represented by the “Big Lick” – it’s time for it to end.
The members of the late David L. Howard Family of Shelbyville, TN need to lay aside their GREED and lining their pockets, and get on the “Right Side of History” where the humane treatment of Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick” is concerned. The “Big Lick” is nothing more than a cruel twisted racket as evidenced by the current World Grand Champion “Gen’s Black Maverick” apparently being SORED at the 2016 TN Walking Horse National Celebration, and ALL persons associated with this horse are now severing Federal Suspensions. This includes the two Owners – Mr. Keith and Mrs. Elaine Rosbury, and Trainer BOYZ Mr. Bill “I Owe It All To Jesus” Callaway.
Ms. Christy Howard Parsons Womack and Mr. Jeffrey Howard
The Howard Family’s legacy at this point is the support, perpetuation of and PROFIT from the Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”) which has stained them personally, their alma mater, their native state, and their home town of Shelbyville, TN, which is a good and decent place.
