Images of New Holland
Draft paint colt at New Holland January 2001

Belgian gelding at New Holland, not bearing weight on hind rear, sold through the ring for $725

This mare was sold at New Holland and according to the seller had STRANGLES!

Gaited Saddlebred gelding, 16.2 hands and sound, $485 kept him from the killers in February 2001.  He showed signs of lameness going through the ring, because rocks were embedded in his feet.  One farrier visit fixed his problem.  So much for Amish being excellent horsemen....

Gorgeous horse bought out of kill pen, later vetted and diagnosed with EPM.  He's since been adopted out into a good home.

30 year old horse, sold for $15 at New Holland in February 2001. ERR and Lost-and-Found Rescue worked together to save this horse, and Second Chance Ranch in NJ gave him a new, permanent, and loving home.

January 2001.  This belgian is 19 years old, blind in his left eye, thin, weak and had swollen knees.  He worked hard for his Amish owners, and being sold in New Holland for meat is the thanks he gets.  The ERR, along with Double D Equine Rescue and Lost-and-Found Rescue, worked to get this gentle giant to safety.  Thanks to the Excellor Fund, he is now happily retired at EPONA in NH.  Special thanks to Barbara at the Excellor Fund for making this a happy ending for "Tiny", who they know call "No Small Wonder" or "Stevie".

Emaciated Palomino with elevated respiration and heart rate.

Front legs bow outwards at the knees.  The horse was hobbling and in obvious discomfort.  He has a slaughter only tag on and was NOT run through the sale ring.  He was hidden away in a pen with several other horses, waiting to take their last ride.  You have to wonder...when he arrived at the slaughterhouse, was he still standing.

Horses brought in from MD to New Holland, with MD auction tags on hips, kill only tags on the backs.

This horse appeared to be blind in one eye.  Bought at MD sale, transported to a PA sale.

This was the shelter provided by a New Holland auction  for it's customer's buggy horses.
Tack auction begins at 8:00 a.m.  Horse auction begins at 10:00 a.m.  The auction ends sometimes as late as 3:00 p.m.  No hay, water or safe shelter is provided at any time. UPDATE! Months after this picture was posted the auction replaced the walls of this shed.  Still no food or water though.

The picture does not clearly indicate the low weight of this bay horse, who was also brought in many hours prior to the sale and tied without water.

Pony mare was hauled into auction and tied without water.  Watering mechanism is on every other section, but she's not tied to one, and they do not work. She was left for at least 12 hours in this condition.
