As someone who rescued an ex big lick horse who was horridly sored whose feet were deformed from the years spent in stacks who had calcium deposits where the chains beat against the bone to make the soring agent sting a little more I hate it I'd like to take every person who has done it or placed their horse in this situation and let them swing from a tall oak tree by a nouse. This was a horse that I had bought at the age of 11 took 2 yrs to get semi normal feet all the while managing the pain from the calcium deposits to having to send him across the rainbow bridge by age 14 because the pain was to much for him to be even a pasture pet yea safe to say I hate them and speak out against it every chance I get.

Big banners should be made up and posted at the shows. Every time I see these stupid shoes I drop my jaw in disbelief. The horses look like they are tall, then you take the shoes off and you have a 15 or less hand horse standing there. I wish the people that rode in these shows could see how they look through my eyes. It is so unattractive to me, even if it were not cruel, the horses look like freaks moving like that. Knowing it is cruel on top of it makes it all the worse.

The worst part is that unlike most Arabians, Morgans and Saddlebreds who may have slightly weighted shoes or use action devices to enhance movement, it's of general opinion that just the grotesque stacks alone on a TWH are enough to amount to soring - even if you are one of the rare few who don't chemically sore. I've seen a few interviews and pretty much any farrier and vet with a brain will concur that serious damage is being just by the shoes alone because it is SUCH an unnatural angle.

At least Arabs, Saddlebreds and Morgans HAVE high stepping movement. You SEE them in the field prancing their hearts out. This big lick BS is like strapping huge shoes on a QUARTER HORSE to make it lift it's knees. It looks NOTHING even REMOTELY similar to how an unshod pleasure TWH moves. I don't even understand how some idiot even got this idea.

You would think that when you're down to only ONE state (and maybe a couple sister states still to dumb know better) where you can even compete with this monstrosity of a gait, with the rest of the world in utter and blatant OUTRAGE over how you're treating your horses, you'd wise up. Obviously I don't mean EVERYONE in Tennessee, but that right there is where you WILL find your big lick supporters. And none of them would ever join a horse forum because they do not LOVE their horses - they see dollar signs and dollar signs only.

I would love to see a complete and total end to this disgusting "discipline" before I die.

Ha Ha, I didn't even notice that because my jaw always drops at the look of those ridiculously stupid jacked up shoes. I swear they look like they stepped on a paint can and it got squished and stuck on their foot. I can't imagine how the horses poor backs hurt as well just from standing in those stupid shoes.
Maybe you have to be inbred to see this as a good thing?

Is it impossible to edit ones post after a bit of time? I had to double post because I couldn't see the button.

I just saw this on another thread and had to post it here. http://hollygirl25.files.wordpress.c...00517-1536.jpg If that doesn't say it all, I don't know what does? That horse is in tremendous pain, it can't even stand up straight and some cow is just waiting to get on and ride. Shameful.

How can the veterinarian at the show not ban this horse just based on the obvious pain? Where are the animal rights people (no I am not an extremist) that should be picketing to stop the abuse. I feel like I should be screaming from a mountain top to "stop the abuse" but it seems it falls on deaf ears.

We live in a morally bankrupt world. How do these people sleep at night? I am just mind boggled. I can't sleep without seeing these horses. I wish I could save them all. Cut those stupid shoes off, trim their feet, take the tail sets off and let them simply be horses in a field, comfortable. I can't tell you what I want to do to the people who did this to them, or looked the other way while somone did this to them because I am too polite.

I'm with Inga on this one...
Since they don't have tails to break, I say we break their arms and tie them backwards; Gag them with the bit from hell; Then sore and boot their feet! Let's see if they can handle walking around the arena with a 300-400 pound rucksack on their backs while the bit is yanked tight and a crop is applied to their backsides!
