Yep the Red Barn is one of the locations we use to do Pony Rides and a Petting Zoo on the weekends. Think it now is just open on Sundays and not sure but think it's changed a lot since we were there some 20 years ago.

Ah the memories....

I'm in Los Angeles and running into the same problem with a twist.

The poly community here seems to be small but also much older. I'm 25 and if I wanted to date within the community I've been able to find so far, I'd have to go for someone at least twice my age. There is nothing intrinsically wrong with that, but its not what I'm looking for.

I had thought I would be tripping over poly people out here but they seem to be pretty rare.

I find that really surprising. With as many people as there are in the LA basin, the poly community has got to be broader than that.

I've developed a theory after studying the LA community for a while.

The poly people in LA are divided roughly into two groups.

The first group are the old-hands, people who've been doing this since the 60's or even earlier. They're already out, comfortable, and secure in their position so they can take more of a public stance and own the title.

The second group is much younger and open to the idea of polyamory and often engaging in it, but they simply don't call it that and don't identify as poly either because they don't know about poly in the proper sense or because they feel isolated and that no one around them will really understand how they feel.
