NEPHEW EUGENE SAYS – HORSE OF THE CENTURY “HONORS” TURNED DOWN IN INSPECTION – THERE IS NO JOY AMONG THE “BIG LICKERS” TONIGHT IN SHELBYVILLE, TENNESSEE | Billy Go Boy Chat – Tennessee Walking Horse – "

I like the comment on Billy's facebook page, "Big Lick may have died tonight."

I, too, rejoice in their difficulties.

We can't, for the sake of a few good charities, ignore the continued suffering of these big lick horses. The charities need to seek better contributors..

The Big Lick may have died but "soring"...maybe not.

I wouldn't even count the Big Lick out, at least not yet.

Still, this gives lie to the often made claim that a winning Big Lick can be created without the use of illegal substances, devices, and procedures.

Organizations, judges , participants AND people in the stands giving them money are all guilty of torturing these animals.
Whats bad is the people seemed to be more upset about not seeing the tortured horse, than they were over the horse being tortured to begin with.
Clear enough for you ?

I'm afraid I'm with Joe though I wouldn't word it so harshly. I do feel for Ma and Pa selling fried dough and not making their seasons money. However I think a line needs to drawn in the sand and I think now is the time. I'm pretty much looking at as seeing a dog or kid locked in a hot car and not busting the window out and walking away.

I've got to wonder about the mentality of these BL people. They know the USDA is there and checking hard and still they are coming up with soring violations. Do they honestly believe they are above the law?

YOU can't HAVE BIG LICK WITHOUT ABUSE !
The shows are guilty as well for even keeping the category.
But they know the law will go unenforced. Or its slap on hand level penalties.
As long as people show up and give them money it will continue. That's why the word needs to get out.
Don't care if little orphan anny is selling lemonade, she is profiting off a horrible act. Find somewhere else to run a business.

^But you can still have the Celebration, still have other classes. There are more to TWHs than just Big Lick.

Indeed there is.

But the BL puts bums in seats. This is clearly demonstrated by the mass exodus. It has been that way for more than half a century.

Umm actually it is keeping bums out of the seats. The stands are empty. Do away with all but flat shod, enforce soring rules and laws, the spirit of them, not just the letter.
For instance that Honor horse, trainer and owner should all get lifetime bans. The TWHBEA should get on board as well, revoke his registration. Ban the owner and trainer from any future registrations.
Or they can keep giving it the lip service they do now and go bankrupt.

Historically, Joe, you are in error. The BL developed to put more "excitment" into the TWH show world and it worked. The fact that the stands are empty, and indeed emptied when the BL favorite was a "no show", validates my premise.

At our local show venue, the Henry Ag. Center at Roane State CC, it is a "ghost town" until the BL classes start. Then there is a crowd; a small one, mind you, but a lot more than for Versitility or any of the flat shod classes.

I am not at all happy with this situation, but the reality is that the BL is the stand-filler.
