RICHMOND, Calif. (AP) - Horse advocates are fighting to keep an illegal stable in Richmond open.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/2gBNHYL ) that after nearly two decades of operation, the Richmond Stable has been served with a notice of code violations this month for operating on land that is not zoned for a stable.

The city argues that the stables are an eyesore, full of debris, lack adequate drainage and smell from horse waste.

Stable Manager Brian Gaither says he doesn’t expect the city to shut the operation down as animal care and control would not be able to care for the 100 horses currently in the stable’s care.

Horse owner Javier Castaneda says he will keep feeding his two horses Ghost and Princess even if they put a lock on the stable’s gate.
