Happy endings for the few
Some worn-out New York City carriage horses are fortunate enough to be rescued from the auctions in New Holland, Pa. After much physical and emotional rehabilitation, Lilly O'Reilly was one of these "happy ending" horses. Lilly has since passed away, but she was well cared-for since her rescue and adoption, and loved by many.
