Introducing Rasbull Dick's 49er!

I am proud to present the latest addition to our stock loft, Rasbull Dick's 49er! Winner of 2nd Section, 4th National, 263 miles, 1,976 birds. She was sent as a youngster to our test loft of Mr and Mrs A.Winder and raced in the Rhondda Valley Federation.

In her very short career she had just 9 races, 1 as a young bird in the final race of the season and then 8 this year as a yearling. She scored 2nd Club, 7th Federation, 2,134 birds from 67 miles in her first race of this season. She followed that up with 4th Club, 198 birds, 135 miles before her huge performance in the Welsh South East National from Burbure where she was beaten on a decimal for 1st Section, but did finish 1st Club, 3rd Federation, 2nd Section, 4th National, 1,976 birds, 263 miles. 

She is a Granddaughter to our No.1 cock Rasbull Semtex,  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 sire of Dick's 49er is Rasbull Super B, direct son of Doldersum & Son famous stock hen Superbreedster 005. She is Dam/GrandDam to 2nd NPO 660km 13,500 birds, 4th NPO 607km 4,468 birds, 9th NPO 600km 1,943 birds, 1st Tessenderl 14,000 birds 2nd Charleville 1,505 birds, 3rd.Peronne 9,852 birds, 7th National Ace YB 2012. 2nd NPO 400km 8,447 birds, 4th NPO 470km 2,922 birds, 6th NPO 460km 12,874 birds, 9th NPO 363km 15,158 birds, 1st Deurne 2,863 birds, 1st Heusden-Z. 1,640 birds.

Dam of Dick's 49er is Rasbull 01, the No.1 stock hen at Rasbull Lofts. She is daughter of Rasbull Semtex when paired to Rasbull Aquaflight, who finished 2nd Open, Yearling Somerset One Loft Race 2013 winning £6,000. 

I am planning on pairing Dick's 49er back to Rasbull 27 who is a full brother to Rasbull 01 (dam of Dick's 49er). Rasbull 27 was the sire of the fed winner for Mr and Mrs Winder last year. Following this initial pairing Dicks 49er will also be paired to Rasbull Semtex.

I would like to say a huge thank you to Alan and Lorna Winder, firstly for preparing our pigeons for the races so they are capable of producing some great results and secondly for allowing Dick's 49er to return back to Rasbull Lofts to begin her breeding career.
