A number of ago we visited Leo Hermemans several times and invested in children of his principle breeding pairs. A nest pair MAX and BRAVE bred directly from his NIEUWE ROSSI and EENOOGSKE were purchased from the nest and both became quite exceptional breeders.

Ten years later we planned ahead and looked around for equally good or hopefully better lines of a similar origin for a cross and we could not ignore the results of Willem de Bruijn , a fancier who had been at the very top for decades but had gone into overdrive with a collection of new lines he had introduced from Leo Heremans that had the incredible ROSSI as a prominant ancestor  into his base pigeons.

These lines of course together with the fantatstic results for Willem and many of Europes elite fanciers suited us down to the ground and we introduced some carefully selected individuals.

SWEET CAROLINE bred from HERMAN x ANASTASIA was one of these and is turning into a basic breeder for us producing real top quality.

One of the offspring from the pairing BRAVE and SWEET CAROLINE is INDIAN WEDDING featured here who together with her nest sister GOLDEN EYE are everything we planned for and have produced from the offset.

Very late last season we bred DAKOTA a cock that stands out maturing in the aviary and we intend to couple him in a few weeks for some trial youngsters. INDIAN WEDDING has been seperated a few weeks from her early pairing and is in fantatsic condition so we hope she will be the perfect candidate for DAKOTA.

Why we love this fantastic sport.
