The image above is OLYMPIC 442 a quite fantastic breeder bred by Willem de Bruijn and owned by Michel Lossignol. We brought some children from this cock into our own lofts to supplement our original Leo Heremans lines and are very pleased with the initial results.   

Most young bird programs started last weekend and I was very pleased to see that Nigel Templar the to Bristol fancier starts with some style winning the first 10 positions in the West of England South Road Combine from Stoney Cross against 1081 birds.

Very happy indeed that the winner was bred by Syndicate Lofts and raced by Nigel. The bloodline is a mixture of our original Leo Heremans lines with our newer Willem de Bruijn lines. Sire is MAXIMUS the last son of our top breeding pair MAX and STARDUST coupled with a hen bred by the Gouden Duif for Belgium winners 2020 Michel Lossignol from his base breeding cock OLYMPIC 442 paired to INTEELT HURRICANE herself a top class breeder.

GB23V72013 raced by Nigel Templar and winner of 1st WOESR Combine Stoney Cross 1081 birds.


I also had a nice message from ‘me old mucker’ Dean Cartmell from Worcerster.

Dixie won 1st,2nd and 3rd Heart of England Federation from Frome against 1238 birds winning by 45 ypm.

His winner is from his son of AMULET x SISTER SPHINX the sire of his M.N.F.C. winner paired to a Mark Janssen hen.

Second bird was a son of BLUE CLOUD  paired to a daughter of CYCLONE x INDIAN WEDDING (BRAVE x SWEET CAROLINE). CYCLONE is also a son of OLYMPIC 442 of Michel Lossignol being a full brother to OLYMPIC BEAUTY the dam of Nigel Templars winner.

Third bird was off a son of his M.N.F.C. winner (AMULET x SISTER SPHINX with a daughter of HERO x STARDUST)x x hero x stardust ) paired onto the latebred daughter of KLEINE LUC bred by Luc Sioen with ALICE a daughter of MAX x STARDUST.

Very well done indeed Nigel and Dean…
