So personal property is any inanimate object I might own, except for buildings and land?

No, even animate objects are personal property. For example, your cat or dog is personal property. The personal property of a farmer or rancher would include horses, cattle, sheep, or any other barnyard animal.

Also remember that we said that a debt is considered property. Debt is not really a physical object, but rather is a concept or an "intangible."

Other intangibles that are property are the good will of a business, a patent, a copyright, the right to receive money under a pension, etc. You might consider stock an intangible, since people rarely see the stock certificates symbolizing their ownership in a large corporation.
