MONTICELLO - When Kim Hunter of Browntown lost her horse of 23 years, she decided the best way to be able to purchase a new one would be to stop traveling around the country and instead move in with her parents, who had at the time in the early 2000s just purchased 6.5 acres of land in Kenosha County. "They had a lot of weeds," Hunter said. "I was out there cutting them by hand, and I thought 'ugh, this is not working well.'"
