Gillian – that’s me, your hostess! I love my two horses – Lulu and Spirit and spend all my earnings on their food, feet, teeth and saddlery. Shh… don’t tell my husband.

Julian – my husband. He’s a hard working dentist with a passion for fast cars and motorbikes.  Also a real softy with the livestock although he’d never admit it.

We have three children, all grown up now so I will enjoy showing yours the horses, chooks etc…

Three of our four dogs have now died of great age but Pippin the Papillon lives on and visits us over Christmas with our daughter Lottie and Lewis the Greyhound. We still have two cats (Edgar and George), the ducks (Big Duck and his wife Annabel), variable numbers of cows but always Jesus the steer – a miracle birth. Bantam roosters (Yellow legs, Crackers, Ben, and Son-of-Colin) plus their wives, complete the family. I hope I haven’t forgotten anyone.
