Horse Farm Beauties


These two thoroughbreds live on a large horse farm just across the street from our front door. We are fortunate in that we can sit in our front porch area, virtually invisible in the shadows, and watch the horses as they graze, doze, and run around chasing each other.

We have one huge concern, though. The City of Ocala is built, for the most part, on land that used to be horse farms. More and more horse farms are being sold and turned into residential subdivisions. Trilogy, a 55+ community in which we live, was not too long ago, a horse farm.

We're hoping against hope, that our horse farm remains a horse farm for the next 10-15 years.

That is the dilemma of the modern age. What a view. I'd hate to lose that too. Your photo looks like a painting! Happy New Year.

Subdivisions are a blight. This is a pretty image.

It is sad when progress gets in the way of tranquility and beauty. I hope the horse farms stay around for a long time

It is wonderful to have horses right out your front door. I agree with you that they are fun to watch. May that horse farm continue for a very one time. Happy New Year, Lowell.
