horsealicious: Who Was The Top Seller, Day 1, At Ocala Breeders' Sales Fall Mixed Sale? - 10/22/10 01:15 AM
Original posted on Horsealicious.
Who was the top seller, Day 1, at Ocala Breeders’ Sales Fall Mixed Sale? The top seller in the Consignor Preferred session of the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company’s 2010 Fall Mixed Sale was a 5-year-old Storm Cat mare (Hip No. 147), Zehoorr, in foal to Tiznow, purchased by Rustlewood Farm, Inc. (Reddick, FL) for $250,000 from the Reddick-based Westbury Stables. Average sale numbers were up 42% compared with 2009, in part due to the dispersal of the entire stock of Westbury Stables.

horsealicious: Knee Deep in Grass in West Ocala Horse Farm Country. - 09/10/10 09:06 AM
Knee deep in grass in West Ocala horse farm country, this friendly mare’s mouth was wet from dew on the grass, her face was brushed with sand… and she was beautiful in the early morning sun.
Isn't it beautiful in Ocala's famous and lush horse country?!!
I've mentioned this before, but Google has some amazing property searches. Loving it more every day. Here is a map of Ocala foreclosures on Google. Harnessing the power of the MLS.... slowly but surely. Just sayin'.

horsealicious: Can You Imagine Living on Anything But A Horse Farm in Ocala? - 08/16/10 01:49 AM
It is difficult to imagine living on anything but a horse farm in Ocala (but I'm doing it, darn it!), especially considering there are over 200 horse farms in and around Ocala in Marion County, Florida. Nothing says horses and horse farms like Ocala, everywhere you look. The pastures, signs, entries, and horses paint a beautiful landscape. Some of the photos in the video below were taken around some of Ocala’s beautiful horse farms in the York area, home to a few spectacular Thoroughbred horse farms like Double Diamond, Live Oak Stud, and Stonewall Farm.

This night bloomer, which was still open early this morning in Ocala, made me think of Mike Jones because the blooms 'sprout' from a big, gnarly cactus, and Mike has posted some pretty amazing cactus photos here on Active Rain.

Taking time to wander, spend time with family and friends, and work on my new Ocala websites (such as Ocalalicious and Juicy Tidbits, and my [not ready] Breaking Ocala News site) is allowing me the luxury of doing 5 to 6 miles on the pavement every morning, snapping pictures along the way. My main website is Horsealicious, which will be my focus once I am spending more time in Ocala.

High Country, a rustic cabin decor up-scale furniture store is a short way down the road too, and I would imagine they will deliver just about anything you want from their showroom.
