Equine veterinarians and veterinary technicians can now nominate their peers for the second Bayer Animal Health Legend of the Year Award, which goes to practitioners and technicians who show a commitment to equine health and care. Bayer will give $5,000 to the winner's favorite equine charity or cause after the winner is announced at the American Association of Equine Practitioners annual convention in November.

Veterinarians and technicians who nominate a colleague for this year's Legend of the Year Award are entered into a sweepstakes to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Mackinac Island, Mich., to ride along with Darley Newman, the host of PBS' equine travel show "Equitrekking." Also included is dinner with Newman, a DVD copy of the show, and a Charles Owen riding helmet.

Dr. Liz Bracken of Atascadero, Calif., won the inaugural award last December. Bayer gave a $5,000 donation in Dr. Bracken's name to Miller's Equestrian Center and Sanctuary in San Luis Obispo, Calif.
