This petition had 2,397 supporters


Representative Yoho,

As the Sponsor of the House PAST ACT (Prevent All Soring Tactics),  would you please ask U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, as a special favor,  to please allow America's Tennessee Walking Horse,  Gen's Ice Glimmer, to be transported and presented for educational purposes across America so people can learn about Big Lick Animal Cruelty.

The Horse Protection Act restricts the transport of "Scarred" TWH to certain events, i.e., horse shows, sales, expos, horse park events.   The USDA enforces the Horse Protection Act.

To educate the public,  Gen's Ice Glimmer, #24704770, Blood Type # TWT050457, wants official permission from the USDA to travel to Vet Schools, College Campuses, Horse Shows, Horse Parks and Horse venues.   Glimmer will be presented so the public can see his permanent Big Lick scars, and also the natural gait of a flat shod Tennessee Walking Horse. 

 On April 5, 2013,  Glimmer was tortured on the main campus of MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University) by a Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration Judge.  The show was named MTSU Walking For Education Horse Show, and it was held at the Tennessee Livestock Center.

Almost 11,000 people have now signed a Change.Org asking MTSU President Dr. Sidney A. McPhee to sever all ties with Big Lick Animal Cruelty, and to ban Big Lick TWH from MTSU property.   These people are from every state and over 85 foreign countries.

Dr. Yoho, when you have a chance,  Gen's Ice Glimmer, #24704770, Blood Type # TWT050457,  would sure like to meet you in Washington,D.C.,  and thank you for everything that you and all the Congressmen are doing to help his brothers and sisters who are still living in pain every day.  

Glimmer also wants to meet and thank all the USDA APHIS Administrators and Vets who strongly enforced the HPA "Scar Rule"and disqualified 35% of Big LickTWH inspected at the 2015 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration.

When would be a good time for you?
