NORTHFIELD, N.H. (AP) - Investigators say some of the five horses taken from a Northfield, New Hampshire farm hadn’t left a barn for several years.

The horses were taken from the home of Bert Southwick Friday, after state Department of Agriculture agents and Northfield police determined they were not well cared for.

The horses are now in the care of Live and Let Live Farm in Chichester. The rescue farm’s owner - Theresa Paradis - said the horses’ living conditions were some of the worst she’s seen.

WMUR (https://bit.ly/1qbGbS4 ) quotes officials saying that some of the horses may not have been outside the barn for almost three years.

A friend and caregiver of the 90-year-old Southwick said he did his best to care for the horses after they were abandoned by their former owner.
