4 fanciers specialised on the races of the (heavy) long distance, decided to present you summer youngsters out of their best strains, ready to breed with. I’ll present you these fanciers in a few lines:
When you say Depasse Lardenoye, it means pigeons that are capable to participate to the most difficult races ! This duo is know all over the world because of their Di Stefano, national ace-pigeon heavy long distance. Every year again Stéphane and Jo win several top results on the international races. One of the most important qualities of the Depasse Lardenoye-pigeons is that they give winners from one generation to another. An example here is Zoé, she was the winning hen international hens from Tarbes and she’s already mother of the 9 Nat Barcelona in 2017.

Van Ouwerkerk Dekkers from Brasschaat
This colony of the province of Antwerp is one of the best of our country on the international races. This colony is mainly based on the pigeons of Bertus Wijnacker, strain Alicante, A and L Van der Wegen, Jos Thoné, especially strain “Pocco Diego” and “Armando”. This colony already won 3 national or international victories: Perpignan International'00, St Vincent'03, Irun'07.

Vve Mornard from Verviers
The name Mornard is known all over the world. After the death of Henri, the famous master, his son Geoffrey and mother had to take care of the colony and they continued to do this at a very high level. The cherry on the cake was reached in 2014 with the international victory from Agen and an exceptional result of 2 pigeons on the national podium. In 2017, the Mornard family succeeded to win a beautiful provincial victory from Pau with only one pigeon at home in their province, the same day. All prove that the Mornard pigeons are capable to leave the group and continue their race all by themselves.
Barcelona : 7874 old: 78, 434 and 4/16
Perpignan : 4620 old: 33, 46, 160, 340 and 6/13
D'hondt Bernard from Malonne.
The colony of this nice carpenter participates to the long distance races and this with very good results; about 20 prizes within the national top 20 and this only the few last years. To come to this kind of results, Bernard can always count on his basic pair; a Depasse Lardenoye-cock with a Monseu-hen. This pair can be found in about 50 % of the pigeons in this colony. Besides this pair, Bernard also looked for some reinforcement with some super colonies like Meirlaen, Saeytijdt, Vancopenolle and Franssen.
