On behalf of the Canadian Trakehner Horse
Our deepest Sympathy and Condolences to the Boettcher Family!
We remember Herbert as dear friend. He was a great
supporter of the Canadian Trakehner Horse Society since the late
1970s. As vice president of the CTHS he gave freely of his time,
gave good advice to the members of the society in matters of
breeding, acquiring and training Trakehner horses. All his life he
showed great love and affection for all Trakehner horses, above
all his own, which he brought from Germany and the many
Trakehners he bred and raised on his farm in Ontario, Canada.
He will be greatly missed!
Alex and Ilse von Hausen and family.
