“I finished studying at Massey University in Palmerston North in 1973. It was the only university in New Zealand where you could do equine studies.
Once I completed the course, I came to Australia to do equine surgery at Melbourne University. It was supposed to be for a year, and I’m still here. After the year at Melbourne Uni, I spent seven years initially at Bendigo, where I worked mainly on harness horses, and then over to Perth to work with the thoroughbreds.
Then I came back to Melbourne University in 1982 and stayed there until I turned 60 in 2006.
I then continued with a Private Equine Referral at Werribee until I retired at 70, seven years ago.”
