This is a marvelous opportunity for you to "Make America Great Again" by taking the side of these magnificent horses who cannot speak for themselves."

CCABLAC provided footage for "The DoDo" to produce "Here's What Soring Does To Horses". Released on March 7, 2017, the video went viral with over ELEVEN (11) MILLION views.
CCABLAC is "WE, The People" grassroots organization. Citizens have peacefully assembled and protested "Big Lick" Animal Cruetly from Gulf of Mexico at Panama City Beach, Florida to Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, NC – from Delta farmland of Tunica, Mississippi to Times Square in New York City – Nashville, Tennessee to the White House in Washington, D.C.
Background: On January 20, 2017, the Trump Administration stopped a new Federal Regulation from going into effect which would remove the "Pads and Chains" to end the "Big Lick" Animal Cruelty. The "Big Lick" is created when Tenneessee Walking Horses have 8+ pound shoes nailed to their front feet, the sensitive skin on their front feet "SORED" (blistered) with chemicals. In the show ring, the chains hit the horses "SORE" front feet causing the horses to step high. This is the "Big Lick".
The proposed Federal Regulation had strong bi-partisan support with conservative Republican Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) and Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-OR), both large animal vets in favor.
Native Tennessean, MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University) Horse Science Professor Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner, says - "It is a business built on the suffering and pain of horses. . The "Big Lick" is a learned response to pain and if horses have not been sored, they do not learn it."
