MANY, La. - Greener pastures are greeting some of the malnourished and neglected horses seized two weeks ago from a Sabine Parish property owner.

The Sabine Humane Society has been successful in finding additional foster homes where the animals can receive individualized attention.

Still, society members are being "extremely cautious" about their picks to ensure the thoroughbreds are in trusted hands. Site visits are required to make certain the horses have adequate housing, fencing and paddock areas.

Reports say the society seized about 60 thoroughbreds from Charles Ford's Hillcrest Farms near Many.

Goats and pigs also were seized from Ford.
