Great season continues!

Pleased to report on the last 2 races for our test lofts. Firstly, in an extremely tough race from Duffel with the Welsh East National on the 13th June there were huge numbers of pigeons who failed to make it home. So it was great to hear that Moulds and Slatter had clocked one of our yearlings to finish 3rd Club. 21st Section, 70th National, 1,021 birds from 344 miles.

The sire of this pigeon is Rasbull Rameses who is a De Rauw Sablon direct from Koen Van Roy. He has now bred 2 x 2nd, 3rd & 6th Club as well as 70th & 81st National and 5th and 35th Hotspots in OLR's. He is a full brother to Lucky Daisy who is the dam of Olympiad pigeon Linda, 27 x 1st.

On 18th June, Mr and Mrs Winder then clocked two of our yearlings to finish 3rd and 6th Club from 88 miles.

The sire of the 3rd Club is none other than Rasbull Semtex our No.1 breeding cock. His breeding record continues to grow and he is now Sire & G.Sire to 3 x 1st, 6 x 2nd, 5 x 3rd, 3 x 4th, 3 x 5th, 2 x 6th Club including 1st, 3rd, 7th, 10th, 21st, 24th, 25th Federation, 4th, 20th, 33rd, 43rd, 45th, 83rd National WSENFC. The dam of this pigeon is Rasbull Aphrodite, a direct daughter of Georgio, Jacob Poortvliet's No.1 breeding cock. 

The sire of the 6th club is Rasbull Rameses who has been mentioned above when paired to Rasbull Boudicea who is a direct daughter of Blue Thunder from Jacob Poortvliet. Blue Thunder won 1st International from 16,572 birds. Rasbull Boudicea is the last daughter sold to the UK as Blue Thunder has since been sold to China. 

We are now 8 races into the season and our test loft birds have scored in each of these races which is fantastic performance and have achieved the following:-

15 Pigeons / 2 Test Lofts / 8 Races


1st, 2 x 2nd, 2 x 3rd, 2 x 4th, 3 x 5th, 2 x 6th Club
3rd, 7th, 24th, 25th Federation,
4th, 20th, 33rd, 43rd, 45th, 70th, 83rd National!


Finally, I am pleased to announce we have a fourth test loft joining our breeding program for the 2019 season. N.Bright and Son from Tonypandy in the Rhondda Valley Federation will be flying the Rasbull pigeons and join current test lofts Mr and Mrs Winder, Moulds and Slatter and G.Thomas & Son.
