This is an old montage of some of our original Gaby Vandenabeele breeders bred down through the ‘Kleinen’ bloodline. ‘Blue Diamond’ and his nest sister ‘Mia’ were the only two ever bred direct from ‘Wittenbuik’ and ‘Sissi’. We owned both of them. ‘Blue Diamond’ was later sold to a Taiwanese fancier who bought him as a result of some major races he had won with his offspring, including a US$250,000 winner in One Race!!. ‘Mia’ was gifted to Mike Ganus and also went on to produce some super racers and breeders especially with ‘Rocket’ in America, Canada and the Far East.
Many congratulations to Mark Shepherd of Plympton on the performance of his exceptional yearling cock ‘Durham Dazler’ bred by his friend Colin Priestman of Consett. This super racing cock won 5th Open B.I.C.C. Falaise against 3278 birds two weeks ago then last weekend won 1st B.I.C.C.Alencon against 6590 birds…quite fantastic.
We are very proud to have contributed our bloodlines on both sides of this exceptional cocks pedigree.
His father bred by O’Hare and Woodward is a grandson of GB01D50360 ‘Wittenbuik 360’ that was bred by Syndicate Lofts and became a top breeder for Myrtle Lofts through the generations. ‘Wittenbuik 360’ was bred from our unique breeding cock ‘Blue Diamond’ a son of two World renowned breeders… ‘Wittenbuik’ of Gaby Vandenabeele paired to ‘Sissi’ considered by many as the worlds best ever breeding hen. ‘Wittenbuik 360’ was purchased by Mark and Dicky Evans as a youngster together with a few others of similar breeding from our Public Auction in the Barrel in Oldbury in the Autumn of 2001 and was skilfully blended into their already strong stock loft.
The dam of Mark Shepherd’s winner was bred by one of the most respected fliers in the Midlands, Mr Stuart Inett who bred him from a son of our top breeder ‘Hannibal’ with a daughter of ‘Drum’ and ‘Agent Starling’. Stuart coupled him with a direct daughter of his Number One Pair.
Many congratulations one again to all involved…
