Boycott Animal Cruelty At Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration - Shelbyville, TN

Shelbyville (Bedford County) TN is a wonderful community where warm,  friendly caring people live and worship, and believe in the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution. Unfortunately,  Shelbyville (Bedford County) TN is a VICTIM of the ANIMAL CRUELTY being perpetrated upon the Tennessee Walking Horse breed.   Native Tennessean MTSU Horse Science Professor Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner says the “Big Lick” is Animal Cruelty -  It is a business built on the suffering and pain of horses”. The “Big Lick” Multi-Millionaires who have made the local David L. Howard Family wealthy,  are holding Shebyville (Bedford County) HOSTAGE.   They pay the Walking Horse Trainer BOYZ to SORE their horses so they can enjoy the Animal Cruelty Racket. It all starts with the “BABY HORSES” – Two Year Olds shown while wearing EIGHT POUND+/- SHOES and CHAINS.  No other equine breed does this. The local citizens of Shelbyville (Beford County) TN are silently BOYCOTTING the annual Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration.    In 2018,    the Walking Horse “Celebration” is a dying event.    U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) has not attended the Celebration in 34 years.   The Governor of Tennessee no longer “Crowns” the World Grand Champion Tennessee Walking Horse on the final Saturday night of the 10 day event. *    PROOF OF ANIMAL CRUELTY In 2017, the Celebration World Grand Champion “Gen’s Black Maverick” was discovered to be allegedly SORE at the Celebration (2016).  It took a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Oxford, MS to obtain the “Smoking Gun” evidence.  USDA Vets said the horse was SORE in both front feet.   Facing these allegations,  Trainer BOYZ Mr. Bill Callaway and two owners Mr. Keith and Ms. Lorraine Rosbury consented to USDA Suspensions and fines in the face of USDA Horse Soring charges. *   “BABY HORSE” TORTURE – TWO YEAR OLDS In 2018,   CCABLAC focused on the “BABY HORSE” Torture of Two Year Olds.   “BABY HORSES” are often started under saddle at 16 - 17 months old.   On this video of a “BABY HORSE” on April 14, 2018, TWHBEA Breed President Mr. David Williams, says,  “I Am Smiling - Another Myatt Monster”. This article provides details:    Part II – “BABY HORSES” – Victimized In The Dark Secret World Of “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty To Tennessee Walking Horses Please support “WE, The People” - CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocates who will again peacefully assemble outside the Celebration Gates to  protest the Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”).

Outlaw Horse Racing In California

Upward of 2,000 horses die on American racetracks every year. In 2016, there were roughly 170 deaths on California tracks alone. ( All to serve people’s desire to place a $2 bet. Despite the typical opening day festivities with ladies in fancy garb and big hats, there is nothing glamorous about horse racing. Racetracks are battlefields where horses pay with their lives for our entertainment. How can we justify a spectacle in which an animal gets instantly euthanized for merely spraining an ankle or breaking a leg? Racehorses are tormented and tortured for the sole purpose of generating profits for their owners and race promoters. How is this, the so-called “Sport of Kings”, still legal? It wasn’t that long ago that another blood sport - greyhound racing - was legal in much of the United States. A more enlightened view has emerged that rightly recognizes it for what it truly is; cruel, inhumane and exploitative. Animal activists and advocates have fought long and hard to render it illegal in 40 states and counting. Similarly, horse racing should be outlawed. Regulations to improve treatment of horses and reduce their rate of death are ineffective, as they are neither followed nor enforced. Frankly, given the money at stake, there are huge incentives to cheat at the track, as well as recklessly breed horses for speed to the detriment of their general health. The only answer is complete abolishment of the horse racing industry. California can pave the way for other states by being the first to pass legislation making horse racing illegal. Please join me in calling upon California lawmakers to ban horse racing, as well as gambling on horse racing, in the State of California.

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.
