Stan Cosgrove, a Past President of BEVA, has died aged 91. Stan was an internationally respected equine vet who pioneered colic surgery and bone repair in his native Ireland and became known to the wider world in the aftermath of the kidnapping of the great dual Derby winner Shergar, in which he had a share. Obituary to follow.
Jenny Mumford sadly passed away at the weekend. Jenny was a highly respected and influential leader in the field of equine infectious disease. She was the Director of the Centre for Preventive Medicine at the AHT for many years and led the development of many of the research programmes within it. She was an inspirational person who led a great team in a cheerful and charming manner, and launched many careers of young vets and scientists in that field. We understand that at a memorial service may be held in Cambridge - we will advise on details as they become available.
