It has been a tremendous start to the season and after just four races Alan and Lorna have recorded the following positions with our pigeons:-
3 x 1st, 2 x 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 3 x 6th including 12th and 15th Federation.
We are very pleased with how the birds are coming and considering Alan and Lorna have 13 in their race team they are performing very well in a club sending over 200 birds to each of the races so far.
Congratulations once again Mr and Mrs Winder!
Today's 3rd Club is the same pigeon who was 2nd Club last week. The Sire is Rasbull 27. He is a son of Rasbull Semtex and is also full sister to Rasbull 01, our No.1 stock hen. His breeding record now stands at Sire to 4 x 1st, 3 x 2nd, 5 x 3rd, 2 x 4th, 2 x 5th, 2 x 6th Club including 1st, 21st, 22nd, 25th, 26th Federation, 8th Section Federation, 33rd, 43rd, 45th, 83rd National WSENFC
The Dam of the 2nd Club is Rasbull Kulpa 699 who is bred by S&P Kulpa. This pigeon is also fast becoming a top stock hen. She is a full Sister to 5 x 1st Federation winners and also bred 1st Federation for Mr and Mrs A.Winder.

Demands and expectations are so high here at Rasbull Lofts that the Dam of the 5th Club and both parents of the pigeon who finished 6th Club have already been moved on having been deemed not good enough for our stock loft! All our stock birds are expected to produce from the start and any that haven't met that standard are removed promptly. Sometimes they are removed a little too quickly!
We are now looking forward to the National races where hopefully our pigeons can continue to perform for our test lofts. We wish our test lofts all the best for the coming races!
Breeding for our test lofts is coming to an end now with just 2 birds left which will go next weekend.
Our birds have gone to the following test lofts for the coming young bird season:-
7 - Mr and Mrs Carey and Tipper
9 - N.Bright & Son
19 - Mr and Mrs A.Winder
We also have 4 birds we entered in the Penywaun Breeder Buyer also going this week to the loft of Wayne Thomas.

This will then allow us to focus on the round currently hatching out who will be sold in our first ever auction of Rasbull Loft pigeons. This auction will start on the 8th June 2019 and will end 15th June 2019 and will feature a full round from every bird in our loft.
We will announce more details of the auction in the coming weeks but if anyone has any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.
