How much acreage and livestock does President George Bush own?
—Eunice C., California

The president's ranch in Crawford, Texas (pop. 705), spreads out on approximately 1,600 acres. Two hundred head of cattle, owned and managed by a resident ranch manager, graze the land, which also serves as home to wild turkeys, deer and a man-made fishing pond stocked with bass. The Bushes bought the ranch in 1999. "It's one of the few places where I can actually walk outside my front door and say, ‘I think I'm going to walk for two hours.' And although I'm not really alone, I can walk wherever I want to walk. And I can't do that in Washington," he says.
