Judith Kay is taking her miniature horses, Peanut and Sprout, and leaving Ron Court.
And, probably, Colorado Springs, as well.
Below are photos of the three:
The City Council ruled last week that there just isn’t room at her small home and yard on Ron Court for the miniature horses.
A couple neighbors complained the smell of hay and horses was causing them health problems with allergies. And they feared the horses would hurt their property values.
It didn’t matter that Kay uses the horses as part of her 25-year-long tutoring program to help troubled and learning-disabled children.
Below is a view of Ron Court, located just west of Circle Drive in the Knob Hill neighborhood north of Platte Avenue.
Peanut and Sprout are moving to MM Equestrian Center on Squirrel Road, east of Fountain.
Here is a look at the center from its Web site:
It will be their home until Kay can sell her place and move to a place that will allow her to reunite with her beloved horses. She hopes to avoid a possible $500 fine and 90-day jail sentence for violating city codes for keeping hoofed animals in the city.
