I know Liverpool require 5 references from specific placements. I currently have 3 and I am struggling to get references of the other two placements which are required a farm and stables. I have emailed them and I was considering going to the actual farm and asking him to write one that way, but he's likely to be busy and won't be able to do it right away. Does anyone have a way to get people to write references?!

In future, I would recommend asking if they can write a reference for you at the end before you start, and ask them over the time that you are there.

I would suggest perhaps going back in person and handing them a self addressed envelope and asking for a reference when they have some time to suit them. Say you need it for your application and would really appreciate it. That way, they might put it on their desk and it'll remind them of you when they sort paperwork, and they can do it at a time to suit them. Wait for around 2 weeks, and if not, give them a phone call.

Yes, they are busy people, but most of them do oblige if you ask them nicely. Some genuinely just forget!

From what I have heard you need references from 1 SA vet, 1 LA vet, 1 farm, 1 kennel/cattery, 1 stable????

It would better if you had the full 5 references to be honest, but if you are having problems / concerns best to ring them up and ask their views.
