I don't think I can remember the old mill actually being a working mill I be that was interesting.
Hi,Montana I would love to have pigs I don't have any land suitable at the moment.What do you do with your Chinese geese,they are total silent I believe.

Hey, small world guys ! I used to work at Mary Mervins ( she sadly passed away a couple of years ago - probabl still wearing her trademark red headscarf!!) I can't remember exact dates but approx 1983 -1988. I wonder if I taught any of you ? (Helen)
I certainly remember all the horses and people mentioned here.
I used to live in the cottage next door

I was a touch later than that 1993 to 1999ish. When Clare Johnson had taken over the running of the yard. Mrs M had a little grey pony called Misty, who still worked in the riding school and an old retired mare called Tonte. Another pair of horses came back from a retirement home somewhere but can't remember their names at the mo. You must know Allie, Alison Potter, her and her sister Susan both worked at the yard, they lived at the top of the village. Their mum Maureen worked for Mrs M too in the house.

Ah Yes I worked with Clare for about a year whilst she was qualifying, I remember travelling to exams with her
. If I remember rightly Clare left , then returned later after I had moved on.
 I knew Ali Potter well, and her parents. The horses i remember were Gilpin ( as remembered by Graham), Natasha, merrylegs, Dougal, Carefree, Fancyfree, and Charade , I must look out some old pics sometime - there must be more.
 I am still in Kent, near Sandwich

Carefree and Charade I think came back to the yard, was one bay and the other chestnut?

Just seen your post, I used to work at Chaucer Stables for Mary Mervin and lived in Verne Cottage next door with 3 other girls who also worked on the yard in 1988/89 I remember some of the horses Dougal and Natasha (my favourites) Gilpin, Charade, Cassidy, Adam, Misty, Carefree, Rhythm. I worked with Clare J for a while before she left. Mrs Mervin was a hard task master indeed!
