Iím currently in Texas and have been seriously given a look at Ocala Florida which lead me to this board and why I registered just to ask this question. Iíve been searching for homes and not sure where I want to live but this city has very affordable homes within my range but a friend of mine who has lived in Florida her whole life said it smells like horse manure.

After doing a little research I saw itís a horse city and I get that. But does it really smell that bad?

There's everything from small to gigantic horse farms that stretch for miles ringing Ocala. If you buy right in the middle of that, you should expect to smell horses. Our retirement community of Stone Creek even butts up against some sort of farm, we can see cattle grazing, but I can't say I smell anything. It's all gonna depend where you buy at?

lol, dontaskwhy! Good one!

I haven't found Ocala to be the least bit smelly, but we don't live near any farms, horse or otherwise. Many years ago, we looked at a property in the East Pasco county area which was downwind of a dairy farm. El Stinkadoro! When we lived in the Tampa Bay area, we were a couple of towns south of the Mosaic fertilizer plant. Most of the time there was no issue, but during the winter, when the wind shifted around and came from the north, we got a snoot-full.

You should not have a problem with smells as long as you do not move next to the sewage treatment plant and even then you probably will not have a problem.

The city of Ocala is different than the county of Marion. You are probably looking for a place outside of the city. Marion is about the size of a small state. Be sure to pay attention to source and cost of utilities in the location you pick.
