From Chapter 1: There comes a time when a man dreams of giving up the pressures of his business, the congestion of the city and the fast pace at which he is living. If he has ever been around a horse, has been to the races or if his wife has wanted to own a horse ever since she was a little girl, the dream soon becomes a desire to own a horse farm. The day you decide to get into the horse business, you are really getting yourself into two businesses. You are in the horse business by design and in the real estate business by default.
