Annemarie Kemmink

Annemarie graduated from the University of Utrecht in 2011, obtaining a DVM degree in large animal medicine.  There was an opportunity to spend a few months in Australia later that year, to work for Dr Anne Jacobson at the Rosehill Farm Vet Practice.  These few months became a longer commitment when she got offered a permanent position there. With the main focus being on reproduction and general mixed practice it was safe to say that not a day was the same and there was a lot to learn. In 2015, after meeting with Dr Kim McKellar and spending some time with him trotting up racehorses, AK&K Equine Services was founded. A fully equipped and established ambulatory clinic, with a strong focus on race – and performance horses. Annemarie’s professional interests are equine reproduction and sport horse medicine. Annemarie’s personal interests are her little stockhorse Kenny, a tribe of dogs, looking after her farm and keeping fit.

Kim McKellar

Kim graduated Bachelor of Honours in 1967 from Melbourne University. He worked at the Ballarat Veterinary Practice from 1970- 2001 and was a partner since 1972. He has been heavily involved in the Ballarat Turf Club and the Country Racing Board. His experience in treating Racehorses is second to none with over 50 years experience. Although semi-retired now he is still sharp as a tact and loves to keep us on our toes.
