The American Farriers Journal staff is seeking additional nominations for both the International Horseshoeing Hall Of Fame and the International Equine Veterinarian Hall Of Fame. Nominations can come from any member of the equine community.

Sponsored by American Farriers Journal and the International Hoof-Care Summit, both of these recognition programs are designed to honor outstanding careers in hoof care. But we need your help in nominating outstanding individuals for these two prestigious awards.  

All we need from you is a 1-, 2- or 3-page letter highlighting the accomplishments of each of the candidates that you would like to nominate. The deadline for nominations is July 31.  

There are a number of farriers and equine vets who should be nominated for these recognition programs. If you would like to check the names of the past inductees into both Halls Of Fame, the list is available on the website. Simply click on “News & Notes” at the top left side of the website and you will see that both Halls are available in the drop-down menu.  

The new inductees will be announced during the 12th annual International Hoof-Care Summit, being held from February 3-6, 2016 in Cincinnati, Ohio.  

You can email your nominations for either of the two Halls Of Fame to prior to the July 3l deadline. Or mail the nominations to: Frank Lessiter, Editor/Publisher, American Farriers Journal, P.O. Box 624, Brookfield, WI 53008-0624.
