We've had one every place we've lived (6 different addresses around the same town in 27 years). And NO, it's not US! The latest we haven't even moved in yet. I introduced myself, shook hands, and the lady said, "I hear you're going to be puttting goats in right beside me." I said, "Well, no, they're sheep." She said, "Oh, even worse -- dirty, and smelly." I said, "Well, they're small sheep (Shetlands) and only 10 of them, plus 2 llamas." She said, "Well I hope when the creek floods (once or twice a year) their waste doesn't wash up in my yard." (It won't, but somebody said I should have told her "No charge for the fertilizer.") We bought 20 acres because 4 1/2 acres had neighbors too close, and before that .87 acre and farmer wouldn't sell us any that surrounded us. Before that lived on a lot 32 feet wide in town, don't know how we did it. We've had at least one grumpy neighbor at each place. My conclusion: you don't control any land unless you own it, and even then it can be a challenge!
