In Celebration of Dorothy Ann Sowers

Dorothy Ann SowersFrom Butch Sowers:

Thanks to all my goat family that sent such loving thoughts this week. Mom loved our goat bunch and helped when she could.

She made a goat quilt for us to raise funds back when we were rebuilding the great Iowa Dairy Goat Show.

She was a mom to us all.

Thanks Butch
