An Oak Tree on the Windiing Oaks Farm
In 2002, Eugene Melnyk from Ontario, Canada purchased 1000 acres of the Mockingbird Farms horse farm in Ocala; he then renamed it Winding Oaks to reflect the fact that the property winds through numerous hills dotted with hundreds of oak trees.
Winding Oaks is a large and successful operation. Melnyk, who is the founder of the Biovail Corporation, now lives in the Barbados, but can often be found checking out the work at Winding Oaks.
Ocala has grown up around the farm which provides a beautiful rural-like oasis amidst a variety of residential subdivisions and businesses. It is located on one of Ocala busiest thoroughfares.
The oak tree above is a perfect symbol of this wonderful horse farm.
