Can't believe my luck! Have been following the Somerset One Loft Auction and one pigeon stood out for me by a mile.
She is a Hermans Ceusters x Ad Schaerlaeckans pigeon
Grandfather on both sides was Breakaway Boy - 1st Open BBC National Vire 2010
Grandmother was Somerset Dawn - 1st Open Somerset One Loft Race, 310 miles in 2010 beating 2nd pigeon by 1hr and 39 minutes!
She has flown Belgium 3 times in her short racing career and has produced the following results:-
52nd Open Young Bird Final, Somerset One Loft Race 2012, 265 miles, 549 birds
18th Open Yearling Race 2nd Hotspot, Somerset One Loft Race 2013, 265 miles, 113 birds
Open Yearling Race Final, Somerset One Loft Race 2013 - 389 miles, 79
