Lily, a one-eyed horse, was found at a horse auction in New Holland, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. It was believed she was destined to be slaughtered. She was frail, had a tangled mane, and was covered in paint.
Paint, you ask? Yes, Lily had been shot over 100 times with a paintball gun and then she was abandoned. Just a quick note: A typical paintball gun shoots at about 200 miles per hour, according to paintball.about.com. Ok, back to the story.
When Kelly Smith from Omega Horse Rescue found Lily, Lily’s head was extremely depressed, her hanging low, one eye were swollen shut, and she couldn’t see out of her other eye.
