Dick and Claire

Animals are at the centre of our lives and the rest of our family at Woodpecker Farm includes four Border Collies, five cats, and four horses.  

Dick has had two remaining ambitions in his life. One is to build the new farmhouse at Woodpecker Farm and the other is to breed, own and train his own racehorse. In May 2009 Indy was born. 

Dick and Claire are both geologists and Dick left his job as a geology teacher in the summer of 2012 so that he could commit himself fully to building the house and to training Indy.
