I’m delighted to tell everyone that Associate Editor Margaret Freeman and Contributing Veterinary Editor Dr. Deb Eldredge both earned awards at the annual American Horse Publications contest.
Margaret’s December 2011 article “Blanket Repairs: A Sticky Situation” earned second place in Service to the Reader. The judges said, “An excellent reader service topic, this piece has a strong headlines, good supporting research and directions on what to do. Sidebars help to nail this article.”

Dr. Deb Eldredge, who became a Contributing Veterinary Writer last year, earned second place in Horse Care with her September 2011 article, “Dealing With Diarrhea.” The judges said, “Author does a very good job of explaining this illness, when and how to treat it yourself, when to call the vet and possible causes. It’s the kind of article you’d clip and add to your horse-care tips file.”

We’re especially proud of both these honors, especially since they so beautifully represent what Horse Journal wants to do: Give our readers information they can take into their own barns and use.
