James Herriot inspired at least two generations of children to become large animal vets. Tom Hume was one such wide-eyed youth. He recognised a desire to be intimately connected with nature and to understand how it functions. He then had the foresight to nurture that desire, channeling it towards his ultimate goal. Its rare to be able to speak to someone so in love with their work. It’s doubly rare for that person to be at the very top of their game. Aside from being every mother-in-law’s dream, Tom is by all accounts an excellent vet. Hopefully you will enjoy our chinwag!
