The feedback we have had is extremely good both from delegates and trade. I have had a couple of requests to include several of the talks into this issue and have included two for your perusal. We have a new president, Dr Deon van Tonder taking over the reins from Allison, which we have to congratulate on performing well and servicing the equine veterinary fraternity during her two years. We wish Deon all the best for the next two years! “Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted” Albert Einstein Editor • Volume 16 no 1 • March 2014 • 3
