Preserving Our Rural Lifestyle -Reply: Willow
Yes, Cindy, I so agree.  I enjoy the smell of horses, etc.  I also very much enjoy the vehicles being slowed down as they speed through my neighborhood.  If this slow traffic is enhanced by rough roads and potholes, I praise and appreciate the rough texture of the roads in my neighborhood.

How would you like to have people who do not live on your street, go to the county and appeal to them to come into your living space and pave and 'improve' the pavement of the road going by your house?  I deeply resent anyone contacting the county to 'improve' my neighborhood by correcting the texture of the roads so that people can go faster without having to slow down to navigate the un-improved roads. 

Please extend your appreciation of our slow paced, rural lifestyle to your neighboring communities and DO NOT plead with the county to come out and turn our homes into domiciles on a speedway of city, urban lifestyle passageways.

Please, Cindy!!!

Gavilan Hills, Bar H Ranch-Flying Horses With Experts/Orange County RegisterPost: Cindy Ferry
Bar H Ranch sits atop the beautiful Gavilan Plateau, in the Greater Lake Mathews are of unincorporated Riverside County. It's part of this wonderful Rural Community we call "HOME." I just yesterday noticed Bar H Ranch's new sign and it brought a smile to my face. We need more equestrian signs out here. I think it would help to protect and preserve the rural, equestrian way of life we have here. And I love seeing these articles that bring the meaning of that home to folks that just may not be fortunate enough to be able to live in wonderful area such as ours.
The part about the smells ... well that just triggered my own memories that have been created living out here, being I'm a girl raised in the projects of downtown Philly. I'll take the smell of horses and cows and chickens and fresh turned dirt and wood burning in local fireplaces over just about anything!
Isn't it great being able to live out here? If you enjoy it as much as I do, I hope you'll help those of us that do in protecting this way of life. There is growth and then there is proper growth, and the county needs to meet the needs of All it's people and that means allowing us to continue to life our rural way of life. It's not like we moved into the city and tried to force them to make it rural. All we are asking is that this area be kept rural, as the county promised in back in the 80's it would be, when they told us nothing less then 2 1/2 ac. min. lots. Let's work to hold them to that. How sad it would be to see our horses with no where left to ride, when once that meant anywhere around their home.
