Caballos de las Estrellas is an Intelligent Living Animal Friendly Eco Community formed around Intelligent Living Community principles.
- Individual freedom and private spaces within a strong solid community.
- Community shared spaces, amenities, production, activities.
- Self-sufficiency, permaculture, renewable energy sources, a little prepper.
- Nature oriented where giving back to nature is an fundamental part of the design.
- A commercial area within the community for community owned businesses and privately owned businesses, designed to meet the communities needs without the use of a car, to provide opportunities for individual income to the degree needed by each person, and engage in trade outside the community.
- Closed system bartering within the community for products and services.
- Events, educational gatherings, spiritual retreats.
Intelligent Living Communities combine the best concepts taken from many sources and philosophies and function well in existing society while being designed to beat the system at its own game by providing an alternative system working within the larger system. Being more self-sufficient and self reliant releases people from the never ending standard globalist trap of work/consumption/debt. Quality of life for residents is a priority with amenities, events, classes, activities, and group adventures. Life should be beautifully lived with each person having plenty of time to pursue their personal dreams. Interaction with and respect for nature is the foundation of Intelligent Living Communities. There is no way to live intelligently without making nature and the earth an equal partner. Lowering our footprint is important but giving back to nature is ultimately more important and our moral responsibility.
Now you can be part of Caballos if you have a RV or Tiny House. 4 large pet friendly sites available. 2 full utility (electric, water, septic) 2 eco sites (water only for alternative systems). Each site includes two raised beds, metal fire pit, picnic table, landscaping. Enjoy everything Caballos has to offer as a full member of the community.
How things work at Caballos.
We have private lots and RV/Tiny House sites, community grounds, free enterprise, and shared income areas. The 80 acres of community grounds will include the amenities (equestrian center, clubhouse, gym, pool, sports court), the community self-sufficiency permaculture farm project, shared income projects, and part of the wildlife habitat enhancement project. Projects are in various stages of completion and nothing is posted on the website until finished or announced until paid for or under construction. The 38 acres of the commercial section offers an opportunity for free enterprise along with group and community owned businesses. Private lots are your sanctuary space to enjoy nature with your animals. If you decide to leave Caballos you are free to sell your lot and start your new life with some financial security. Yes, we are very different but it is working. We have a stable long term community with almost no turn-over or burn-out. We have no mandatory – chore lists, work schedule, hours required, or community meals. Caballos has the best group of people I have ever been around, an extended family, self-motivated, dedicated, creative, and fun!
Sustainability and Self-Sufficiency:
Caballos is a wildlife sanctuary. Our goal is working with nature with an emphasis on sustainability and self-sufficiency within the community. Caballos de las Estrellas is always working toward a harmonious relationship with our environment from providing eco friendly innovation, to wildlife habitat enhancement, to education and events. I strongly recommend the book “Man Swarm” by Dave Foreman for any eco community. “What ‘sustainability’ means has also been seen through the lens of Man’s needs. A society is not truly sustainable if it brings on extinction of other Earthlings or if it tames its lands and waters” “Per capita sprawl comes from bigger homes and lots, and is tweaked by tax, zoning, and transportation policies, while population sprawl comes from more bodies. Looked at overall, the two were nearly even for how much sprawl they drove, but population growth came out somewhat higher.”
We are an animal friendly community at a time when many people who live with animals are finding themselves faced with oppressive restrictions and less space designated for large animals every year. There is no charge for keeping horses and some livestock at the equestrian center but you can also keep them on your own lot. We have members that work in animal rescue and our community is dedicated to giving back to the earth.
For years I have watched people put a great deal of effort into designing beautiful livable and environmentally sound concept communities, but over the years few have materialized and life goes on as usual. It takes a great deal of money and commitment to move from start up to something solid and established. Most dreams and projects rarely get off the ground. We are left with government solutions and history proves that the nature of government is and has always been parasitic and self-serving with a small disconnected privileged elite class at the top. Marxist or Neocon, the results have been the same worldwide, no matter how utopian the dream they are pitching. Elites and serfs, nowhere to run, no personal control. I believe real change will only come from the ground up within a growing group of small communities, each with their own vision. These communities remain the wisest places to test and refine concepts. Caballos is one of those communities and we welcome you to see if our vision works for you.
