In 2005, Barney and Donna Clancy moved to Wildwood Village in northern El Paso County, attracted by the subdivision’s horse-friendly covenants and its five-acre lots.
However, the neighborhood wasn’t as friendly as Barney Clancy hoped. He wanted four horses, instead of the two allowed by covenants. The homeowners association told them to thin their herd and Clancy fought back. But he lost.
In December, he moved out of Wildwood and into Canterbury West, a horse-friendly subdivision a few miles northwest of Wildwood.
Here are some maps of the neighborhoods and the region.
In moving out, Clancy pulled a unique house swap with Daryl Grunder, who was selling a house in Canterbury West subdivision. Grunder was downsizing while Clancy needed more room.
And in the process of swapping houses, something else happened. They became friends. Here’s a look at the properties from www.FlashEarth.com website.
