    Well, it all depends on your zoning. It might be a problem in the city limits. But aside from neighborhood covenants, it's not so much of a big hairy deal in the county... then there are those noise ordinances when it comes to roos.

    Try: http://www.co.escambia.fl.us/departments/planning_zoning/default.php

    In
    Santa Rosa County I can even have horses and I’m just in R1M - single family, 1/2 acre minimum zone.
