Update November 7:
The Post and Courier has followed with a slightly more in-depth write-up that has some additional context; read it here.
Following a guilty plea for violating city codes regarding animal welfare, the Carolina Polo and Carriage Company is being forced to close for 7 days and will then be put on a 90 day probationary period.
If it fails in that period it will have to close for another 23 days.
Read more stories on this subject in our Carolina Polo and Carriage Company topic page.It's a pretty light sentence considering they could have lost it for 180 days, though it's worth pointing out they've already been fined $1,800.
