Approximately 60 delegates attended the inaugural Nick Mills Memorial
lecture, held in the Lloyd’s of London library on 17th November
The lecture was kindly sponsored by the Lloyd’s Market Association & Bloodstock

and Julian Lloyd, Chairman of Lloyd’s Market Association.
Sue McDonnell of Pennsylvania State University was kind
enough to fly over from the United States especially to give
the lecture and the audience was very privileged to hear such
an internationally renowned speaker. The lecture was entitled “Stallion
Psychology and Physiology” and gave the audience much food
for thought in terms of how stallions are managed, particularly
in the larger studs. A lively question and answer session followed
the main lecture.
was drawn to a close by the Hon. David Howard who
thanked all who had attended in Nick’s memory, especially
Nick’s widow, Vicky, and son Tom.
