Some people will go to almost any length for their horses. But even by horse enthusiasts' standards, Alan and Donna MacGillivray stretched the limits last week: They had a horse barn delivered to their hilltop equestrian property by helicopter. It was done not for effect but necessity. When the Laguna Hills couple learned that the barn they had ordered could not be trucked up the steep hill to their Nellie Gail Ranch home, they weren't about to give up.

The Hidden Hills estate that pop icon Britney Spears had been leasing for $25,000 a month is back on the market. Ronald N. Tutor , chief executive of the construction firm Tutor Perini, is listing the equestrian-zoned property at $9.995 million. In real estate's headier days the sprawling mansion was offered at a high of $18.9 million but was priced at $12.9 million before being taken off the market early last year for the lease. Apparently the fact that Spears slept there adds cachet but no dollar value.
