REST IN PEACE SWEET LILY
New Jersey – Jon and Tracey via their Facebook page “The Daily Squeal” has announced that Lily, the pony mare that was brought to the New Holland Sales Stable for auction and later adopted by the couple died over the weekend.
‘It is with the deepest sadness that we share with you that dearest, sweetest Lily passed away yesterday. She went peacefully surrounded by so many that loved her. We stroked her hair and told her over and over again how loved and special she was. She was under her favorite tree on soft grass. She will live on in our hearts and in our fight to protect, love and cherish all animals.’
Lily was lame, underfed and covered with paint when she arrived in Lancaster County. Following a trial in New Holland, 65-year-old Philip Price Jr. of Rhode Island, was convicted of 5 summary counts regarding his handling of Lily.
Hartman was ordered to pay $3,056 in fines and $10,178 in restitution for Lily’s recovery-care costs.
Price is prohibited from doing future business at New Holland Sales Stables, the judge ordered.
