    When I went house hunting the real estate agent asked me what kind of house I was looking for. My reply was "around 5 acres". When I finally went to look at a place I headed directly for the barn first, then checked out the arena, then went to look at the house. I bought the place because I loved the barn and arena. The house is ok, but not really my style. Of course, I don't spend a lot of time there.

    Friends joked that when I bought my last place, all I could talk about was the land and barn. When asked about the house, my only comment was, "Oh. Yeah, it has one."

    I hope the barn, indoor, outdoor arena, and fencing cause the same reaction when I put my place on the market! LOL

    Back in my day, we didn't have as many warning labels because people weren't so dang stupid!
