BOYCOTT “Big Lick” TN Walking Classes – Delta Fall Classic Horse Show – Tunica (MS)

Please SIGN this Petition to STOP Animal Cruelty to beautiful Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”).    CCABLAC calls for a "WE, The People" BOYCOTT of this cruel "Big Lick" Horse Show. Tunica County (MS) is Delta farmland along the Mississippi River,  right below Memphis, Tennessee.  It is also a casino resort community, which has fallen on economic hard times. The “TUNICA HORSE SHOW” is the last major 2017 “Big Lick” Show.     Wealthy “Big Lickers”,  and their Trainer BOYZ , will take the Animal Cruelty  300 miles from the epicenter at Shelbyville, TN to the Delta flat land of rural bucolic Tunica, MS. The “Big Lickers” will party at the Gold Strike Casino on the Mississippi River, and then drive 12 miles over to the “Big Lick” Horse Show at the Tunica Arena and Expo Center on Highway 61 to enjoy the Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”). On November 3,  2016,  a World Champion “Big Lick” exhibitor did just that, except he allegedly did something terribly wrong.    Mr. Richard Mitch of Pleasant Hill, MO,  allegedly drove his Nissan Frontier truck directly at a group of CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocates who were peacefully protesting by holding a “BOYCOTT Big Lick Animal Cruelty Banner” while standing in front of the Tunica Arena and Expo Center.  A CCABLAC video caught all of it, and here is the BillyGoBoy.Com article: http://billygoboy.com/2016/11/10/world-champion-big-licker-mr-richard-mitch-drives-truck-at-mother-of-two-young-children-peacefully-protesting-big-lick-animal-cruelty-with-ccablac-citizens-campaign-against-big-lick-animal-c/ On August 23, 2017,  a personal injury  lawsuit was filed against Mr. Richard Mitch in U. S. District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi on behalf of a grandmother who was one of three CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocates holding the Banner outside the Horse Show at the Tunica Arena and Expo Center on Nov. 3, 2016. http://billygoboy.com/2017/08/28/ccablac-animal-welfare-advocate-sues-celebration-big-lick-exhibitor-for-300000-00-damages-for-allegedly-recklessly-endangering-her-life-at-tennessee-walking-horse-national-celebration-delta/ On Sep. 1, 2017,  the following article ran on the front page of the Shelbyville Times-Gazette newspaper:  http://www.t-g.com/story/2440306.html In 2017,   CCABLAC peaceful protests against the Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses have resulted in EMPTY STANDS at: *            Panama City Beach (FL)  - April 27 - 29 *           Columbia  (TN)  -  June 2 - 4 *           Shelbyville (TN) - TN Walking Horse Super Bowl (Celebration)Aug.24-Sep 2 *           Asheville (NC)  - Oct 2 - 4 Tennessee Walking Horses are TORTURED from an early age to learn how to do the “Big Lick”.   It is a pain-induced gait. The horses throw their legs high while wearing CHAINS and SIX – EIGHT POUND stack shoes.   Caustic chemicals are applied to sensitive skin above the horses hooves, and then wrapped with plastic to “cook in” the chemicals which causes the skin to be blistered.  When the chains hit the skin,  the horses throw their front legs high while squatting down on their back legs – creating the cruel “Big Lick”.  “Big Lick” TWH are the only horses in America which wear Chains in the show ring.  And they are shown as TWO YEAR OLDS.   According to native Tennessean and Noted Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner,   the      "Big Lick" is a "business built on the suffering and pain of horses".   Dr. Haffner is a member of the Horse Science Faculty at MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University) in Murfreesboro, TN. The State of Mississippi took a stand against the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty in    March 2015, when the University of Mississippi Medical Center severed all ties with the “Big Lick” Mississippi Charity Horse Show in Jackson, MS; and refused to accept a $50,000.00 annual charitable donation. In October 2016,  due to the efforts of CCABLAC,   the death of the"Big Lick" Mississippi Charity Horse Show,  held for over 76 years on the Mississippi State Fairgrounds in Jackson, Mississippi,  was officially announced. After the wealthy “Big Lick” Multi-Millionaires have one last Hurrah at TUNICA, MS,  they will soon be getting calls from their Trainer BOYZ.  The Trainer BOYZ will tell them about the 16-18 month old colts recently started under saddle which are being tortured with abusive Training methods to see if they can do the “Big Lick” gait. The Trainer BOYZ will sell the Wealthy Owners the 'best' of these "EQUINE BABIES", and the vicious cycle starts all over again. This BillyGoBoy.Com video of the "Big Lick" at the 2016 TUNICA Horse Show by a CCABLAC Animal Welfare Advocate has reached over 928,000 persons, and been viewed over 109,000 Times. The Trainer BOYZ riding is Mr. John Allen Callaway.  He is the brother of Mr. Bill Callaway who went on Federal Suspension within 24 hours of winning the 2017 World Grand Championship at the Tennessee Walking Horse Super Bowl (Celebration) at Shelbyville, TN. After you SIGN,  please SHARE the petition with your friends and family via email, Face Book, and Twitter! Your PETITION Signatures and Comments will be delivered to the proper officials.
