Seeking to put the West back in West Covina, the City Council is about to allow more horses in the city once known as the horse capital of the San Gabriel Valley. The council is in the process of approving a law that could increase the number of horses on land already zoned for them. "Our old ordinance was far too restrictive on horses," said Mayor Steve Herfert, a horseman who is partial to a 10-gallon hat. " 'We're putting the West back in West Covina' is our city slogan this year."
