Chris Pollitt Named Honorary Fellow of the Worshipful Company of Farriers in London Ceremony
Australian veterinarian and laminitis researcher Chris Pollitt was honored by the Worshipful Company of Farriers (WCF; "The Company") last week in an honorary luncheon in London. The Company bestowed an honorary fellowship, stating,
The Honorary Fellowship is the highest honor awarded by the Worshipful Company of Farriers and such an award is only made to exceptional people who have made an exceptional longstanding contribution to the art, craft or science of farriery.
It is even more exceptional for this award to be given to somebody from the other side of the world.
Professor Chris Pollitt is one such exceptional person.
With countless publications to his name, no one has done more to advance the scientific understanding of the intricacies of the horse's foot than Professor Pollitt.
Chris is now entitled to use the letters (Hon)FWCF after his name.
