JEDBURGH’S Sheilagh Brown had two reasons to be cheerful last weekend.

For she gained not only a first class BSC (Hons) in equine science from the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester, last Saturday, she was also awarded a college book prize for being the top student on her course.

Sheilagh, 54, right, a vet for the Defra agency, AHVLA, is planning part-time studies towards a PhD in genetic diversity of rare breed horses.

She was presented with her awards by Irish agriculture minister Simon Coveney, a former student of the college.
