John qualified as a veterinary surgeon from RVC London - we think sometime
in the middle ages….
After spells in general practice and with the RSPCA he went back to RVC London to do research on horse reproduction.
In 1974 he started this veterinary practice based almost entirely on equine stud work and between 1990 and 1997 John shuttled between the horse breeding seasons in the UK and Queensland Australia .
Over the years John has accumulated data on all aspects of horse reproduction, published over 70 peer reviewed scientific papers and has contributed chapters to Standard veterinary textbooks that are referred to by vets all over the world.
In recent years John has been invited to speak at conferences in Germany , Finland , Australia, Poland and Israel. He has also given presentations on his research findings in America and New Zealand.
Most recently in recognition of his contribution to the field of Equine Reproduction he has been bestowed with an Honorary Professorship by the University of Nottingham.
When John has spare time his interests include , gardening , hill walking and breeding his own Irish Draft mares.
For the first time since establishing the practice in 2012 and 2013 John took 6 weeks off to circumnavigate the globe . John with 3 other friends drove from the UK across Europe and Russia to Vladivostock before travelling from Alaska to New York.
