A horse in the kitchen

A little paragraph published in, of all places, the North-Eastern Daily Gazette for 11 January 1890:
Dr. Roberts, Medical Officer of Health for Deptford, has reported to the District Board that the occupier of a house in Blackhorse-road, Deptford, kept a horse in the kitchen at that address. The Board resolved to serve a notice to remove the animal.

Well, if you can't keep a horse in your house in Blackhorse Road, where can you keep one? Roan Street perhaps...

Perhaps there were complaints from the neigh-bours.

I dread to think what they kept in Oxestalls Road.
