We are so sorry to hear of the sudden loss of your beloved husband, Alan.

We know how much support Alan gave over the years to the rescue and preservation of the Arapawa Island goats. As you have said, Alan was the rock. We want to say thank you for his unwavering support for both you and the work to secure the future for this important heritage breed.

Please accept the condolences of the Rare Breeds members and National Committee, and know we are thinking of you and your family during this sad time.
