It is with a very heavy heart that I must announce the passing of Pat Showalter.
The first registered Kinder goats were bred by Pat, and she has been an active breeder and member of the KGBA every since. Pat was always very generous with her time and knowledge, and was integral to the creation and success of our the Kinder goat and the association.
Pat was more than just her goats, though… she was an accomplished artist. She saw beauty in everything and represented it in a wide range of media, including everything from textiles to soap. She was a woman with strong feelings about the world around her, and she stood up for what she believed in. She will be dearly missed by the many people who’s lives she has touched.
Our hearts go out to Pat and all of her friends and family.
