Horse Farm Territory




The Trilogy resort abuts a large and beautiful horse farm.  At one time, of course, all of the land in this area consisted of horse farms.  But time marches on to the beat of what some would call "progress" and many of our horse farms are disappearing.  

Our home is on a cul-de-sac and the first shot is what you see from the window in my office or den.  The horses don't always show up, but they are there often enough to bring pleasure to those who live on this street.

The 2nd shot consists of a shady lane which the horses can take advantage of on certain days and certain occasions.

Lastly, is a photo of some of the beautiful equines that grace this property.  This was taken after Hurricane Irma came through.  Evidently, the horses weren't adversely affected.

A lovely looking area Lowell. I love the view from your office, it's pretty and you can see the horses. Glad Irma didn't do to much to you and hope that you can now enjoy your new home.

You certainly have a great view from your office.

Wow! You've certainly got a great view, Lowell! And I'm pleasantly surprised to see that not only the horses seem fine but the trees don't look like they've survived anything untoward. Heck, nary a branch down!

My goodness Lowell, I can see why you wanted to live here. That view from your office window is wonderful! I have always enjoyed driving through the Ocala area and I hate to hear that the horse farms are disappearing.

Thank you so much for your kind comment today on my photography. It's hard to take a bad photo when the views are so beautiful. I really did enjoy that trip more than any other I have taken, probably because I have always wanted to visit Poland especially since my great-great grandparents came to the Jacksonville area from Poland in the mid 1800's. I had a Polish last name growing up and I thought it was difficult to spell until I saw some of the Polish surnames on my trip! I hope you were able to go back and look my previous posts and my photos of Old Town Warsaw and Kraków. They are both beautiful cities and now I want to go back!

You have a wonderful view from your window.
Good to see those trees still standing after Irma passed through.

How lovely to be able to see the horses often Lowell, they are nice to watch close up like this but not too close 😀

Always enjoy seeing your photos of horses, and horse farms.

What a view you have, no wonder you wanted to move there. I'm glad you and the horses survived Irma unscathed. It looks like even the trees here survived pretty well.

Nice spot you have there.

Lovely view from your office window! Would be easy for me to get distracted! The horses seem fine with the effects of both progress and Hurricane I.
