Top Customer Reviews
I loved it at the library, so I had to have my own copy to use and enjoy full-time. Love to look at the diagrams for barns and property layouts. Lots of tips for improving the smallest acreage in an environmentally sensitive manner. Ms. Hill also shows her love of horses by including dozens of photos of her own equine friends to illustrate her points throughout.
