(NECN) - Three of the 19 miniature horses rescued from a farm in West Boylston, Mass. have now found new homes.

When the horses were rescued in March, they were dirty, underweight and laden with internal parasites.

They are all now in much better shape and the remaining 16 horses will soon be adopted, leaving the farm in waves beginning this weekend.

Below is part of the press release:
"The MSPCA Nevins-Farm announced that three of its 19 miniature horses—rescued last month from desperate conditions on a small farm in West Boylston—have gone to new homes this week. Two of the horses, Michelle and Misty, were transferred Thursday to the Maine State Society for the Protection of Animals (MSSPA), New England’s largest equine rescue facility. A third mini, named Angel, went to MSPCA-Nevins Farm supporters Catherine Hackett and her husband Edward Temple of Deerfield, N.H. The MSPCA-Nevins Farm has secured new homes for all of the remaining 16 horses, who will be placed once they receive a clean bill of health.

All of the Miniature horses have potential adoptive applications at this time, and Ghareeb is encouraging those interested in welcoming a new equine into their lives to consider one of the 45+ other horses currently available for adoption at the MSPCA. Anyone wishing to adopt can click here for more information about the adoption process at Nevins Farm."
