 Update: MS. LILLY O’REILLY

UPDATE - EARLY 2007

Lilly was adopted by a veterinarian in the fall of 2006 and now lives with her new brother Coal, a quarter horse and a donkey named Badonkey Donk. She adores both of them. She is getting lots of attention and love from her new "mom" and the kids on the farm. Her mom reports - "Lilly is doing great. She has really come out of her shell like you would not believe. Her newest favorite game is taking everything out of my tack box one item at a time while I am busy brushing her or tending to her feet – and I swear that horse smiles the entire time she does it."

Lilly was making progress while she was at Central New England Equine Rescue. For so long, she had been shy and reserved with a frightened look in her eye that gradually went away. But they knew that the one thing that would help her was lots of attention from a care giver. And that is exactly what happened in her new home.

People who know and love horses will tell you what comedians they are – how they are very playful and like a good time – something you never see with the carriage horses who wear blinders and are stuck between the shafts of their carriages.

This photograph was the Christmas Card sent out by Lilly's new person.
