Why do Home/Property Owners Associations seem to attract psychotic control freaks ...
I don't know whether to scream or puke .. maybe both!
We used to have our mares at our "town" property where they built a suburban subdivision 1/4 mile away. The roads were public (not gated) but there was a HOA. I always road through the neighbor to get to the fields. One day a HOA board member got in his car, chased after me through the neighborhood, pulled in front of me, got out, and started screaming that I was an arrogant sob for riding through his neighborhood. To make a long story short, I had to call the sheriff to come and tell him that since it was a public road there was nothing that he could do about it.

There's a reason I live out among the cattle and crops.
Yes, I tried the city once, I love the country life better....:wink:
gotta love livin in the boonies! haha
but i do have to say i give mad props to the guy back home in in town who painted his house red, white, and blue after his HOA told him he couldnt have a flag pole.
We are pretty far out, but happen to be in a platted 5-10 acre subdivision. They act like we are in town .. freaks.
My biggest gripe is that they feel like they have the right to come up on your property any time they like.
I just told DH we need a dogproof perimeter fence and two really big mean dogs.. "Sure, come on up anytime you like" ...
^^or a goose!
i sure as heck would run from a goose! hahaha
When the Rural Newspaper informed me "there's the middle of nowhere and then there's YOU" as to why they were refusing delivery.... I just smiled.
I like my peace, quiet and lack of visible neighbors.
