Abolish All "BABY HORSE" Two Year Old Tennessee Walking Horse Classes (“Big Lick”)

The Tennessee Walking Horse is the ONLY equine breed in The World which shows TWO YEAR OLDS wearing approximately EIGHT POUND SHOES with CHAINS hitting the sensitive skin above the horse's front hooves. The "BABY HORSES” are put into "TRAINING" often as early as 15-16 months old. They are "STARTED" with a "SMALL" foot/package which-h is built up to the larger size platform shoes.  They are "SORED" to see if they can "WALK" through the pain,  and ‘Step High’ to be a Tennessee Walking Show Horse. This shocking (DoDo) video  - "Here's What Soring Does To Horses" exposes the “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse Animal Racket as nothing more than base and abject ANIMAL CRUELTY.   https://www.facebook.com/NowThisNews/videos/1606891339327953/ Viewed over 16.4 MILLION TIMES,   the viral video features “Gen’s Ice Glimmer”,  an abused Tennessee Walking Show Horse.   The first horse show is a Two Year Old “BABY HORSE” at the 2016 Coumbia, TN “Big Lick” Horse Show. This Video is from the “BABY HORSE” Two Year Old Class at Asheville, NC in October 2018.  It has been viewed over 343,000 times. https://www.facebook.com/BillyGoBoy/videos/172197800350091/ This Video is the “BABY HORSE” Two Year Old World Grand Champion at the 2018 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration. Facebook first “covered”,  and then removed the content as being “graphic and violent”. The TN Walking Horse National Celebration considers it to be wholesome family entertainment. https://youtu.be/2GfihLBW3Ao This video shows 59 DAYS of "Big Lick" Training on a “BABY HORSE” (Sep. 6 - Nov. 4) needed to "Make" a "Big Lick" Show Prospect. https://youtu.be/KOouMSaKRdE “The ‘Big Lick’ is a pain induced gait,”  says Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner,  Horse Science Professor at MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University).  "It is a business based on the suffering and pain of Horses”.  “Soring” is the illegal and cruel practice of using chemical and mechanical methods to create pain in a gaited show horses front feet to exaggerate their animated step." Many Tennessee Walking Horses like are started under saddle as merely “Babies” – about 15-17 months old in the Fall of the year.   And now Videos like this one are starting to surface on the internet with “Big Lick” Trainers and owners bragging about the progress of the “BABY HORSES” doing the “Big Lick”?  https://youtu.be/iL0T8NGvUYQ Putting “BABY HORSES” in the Show Ring wearing approximately EIGHT POUND SHOES and CHAINS is barbaric,  and an atrocity.  The "Big Lick" gait should never be accepted or sanctioned by civilized society in 2019.

Your Signatures and Comments will be delivered to: ·      Mr. Bill Cantrell, President of the Walking Horse Trainers Association; ·      Ms. Janet Donlin,  CEO, American Veterinary Medical Association;  ·      Mr. Jeffrey Howard, Publisher - The Walking Horse Report/Director of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration;  ·      Mr. Rory Williams, Executive Director (TWHBEA) Breed Registry; ·      Ms. Robin Broadway,  President,  American Horse Council.

Tydings Memorial PAST Act” to end the Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses Here is that story: https://www.facebook.com/BillyGoBoy/videos/387172041860204/ The "TYDINGS Memorial PAST Act" was introduced in the U.

Petition to Food and Drug Administration, U.S. Governors, Animal ACTion Network, International Animal Rescue, U.S. Senate, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Federal Bureau of Investigation

Require pet food Industries to include definitions of the ingredients in their pet foods.

Require pet food manufacturers to disclose the quality of ingredients information on pet food labels with definitions for their ingredients. Not just for example byproducts. They need to have clearer descriptions of the ingredients information. They also need to label whether the ingredients are human grade or label them as a animal feed. So many health issues for our pets causing cancer, diabetes, food allergies and other diseases and health issues. My cat just recently passed away because she became allergic to her food, chicken and turkey and other food allergies. We had to put her on a prescription diet and by then it was to late and she just stopped eating. She eventually starved herself to death. You wouldn't feed your children the ingredients in most pet foods. Ground up bones, feathers, dead carcasses that have been found in the fields after a few days, and here's the one that really is horrific and they have found traces of euthanized animals with traces of the drug they use to euthanize animals in 30% of the foods they tested.  Now that's just plain sick and whomever is responsible for that should be imprisoned or worse.

Eliminate ALL Two Year Old Tennessee Walking Horse Classes (“Big Lick”)

The Tennessee Walking Horse is the ONLY equine breed in the World which shows TWO YEAR OLDS wearing approximately EIGHT POUND SHOES with CHAINS hitting the sensitive skin above the horse's front hooves. The "Baby" Horses are put into "TRAINING" often as early as 14-15 months old. They are "STARTED" with a "SMALL" foot/package which is built up to the larger size platform shoes.  They are "SORED" to see if they can "WALK" through the pain,  and Step High to be a Tennessee Walking Show Horse. This is the prized (and abominable) "Big Lick" Gait. Here is a Video of "Amazing Honor", TWHBEA Registration #21602014 -       (Foal Date - April 14, 2016)  - She was started under saddle on September 6, 2017 at the age of 17 Months.   This video shows 59 DAYS of "Big Lick" Training      (Sep. 6 - Nov. 4) needed to "Make" a "Big Lick" Show Prospect. https://youtu.be/KOouMSaKRdE A nightmare of Animal Cruelty was on display in Laurel, MS last  Saturday night,   March 3, 2018.    Viewed over 161,000 times,  this CCABLAC Video shows a 23 month Tennessee Walking Horse – “HRH Princess Charlotte” – struggling to do the high stepping “Big Lick” gait.  https://www.facebook.com/BillyGoBoy/videos/1458130324310059/ “HRH Princess Charlotte” is trying to go in a straight line while wearing approximately EIGHT POUND SHOES,  and CHAINS are hitting her sensitive skin above her front hooves.  “HRH Princess Charlotte’s” foal date is March 26, 2016.  At 23 months, she is the equivalent of a 15 year old child.  “The ‘Big Lick’ is a pain induced gait,”  says Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner,  Horse Science Professor at MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University).  "It is a business based on the suffering and pain of Horses”.  “Soring” is the illegal and cruel practice of using chemical and mechanical methods to create pain in a gaited show horses front feet to exaggerate their animated step.
