Annick Goeteyn (Deinze) 18 x 1st prizes (no doubles) in 2022!

24 Jan 2023

You can call them an "old hand" in the business. When you have more than 15 years of experience with a colony of pigeons and you support this year after year with very strong results, you are an expert. From 2006 till 2016, the pigeons were played in the name of Van Renterghem - Goeteyn, since 2017 in the name of Annick.
Where it was in the beginning a family hobby, this has now evolved into an almost complete day's work.  What typifies Annick in all this is her sense and striving for perfection and this as well in care, guidance, approach etc... It must be in order or she can't sleep. Annick loves her animals.
The lofts are always cosy and spic and span, the pigeons always look top-notch and the time-schedule is strictly applied and respected. Nothing is left to chance. Not easy to do this day in and day out with a considerable number of pigeons. Here it is clear that both the caretaker and the pigeons do their utmost to achieve the best results. To realise all this, she can count on the support of her partner Christian.

The golden Vandenabeele stamp
The story is well enough known by now. In Deinze, they took a flying start right from the beginning, as it were. How is that possible? Well, when you can start with the best pigeons which were available at that moment in the pigeon world, namely the pigeons of Gaby Vandenabeele from Dentergem, coupled with a great motivation, this is possible.  The proof was delivered here.  They started almost 100% with the pigeons of Gaby and the train was immediately on the rails.  At the moment, the colony exists out of 90% Vandenabeele-pigeons with occasionally a bit of foreign blood.
On some lofts some pigeons were added, but the mainline is still the Vandenabeele-pigeon.  For distances from 100 km till 700 km, this is a strain that formed the basis for many lofts. Just look at the top performances on several lofts and you will regularly find the pigeons of Gaby in the pedigree and this ranging from national victories to ace pigeons to top breeders.  A strain that is still going strong in the pigeon world with a laundry list of top references.
Annick's pigeon loft consists of about 30 permanent breeding couples and a number of support couples. The racing team of yearlings and old pigeons consists of 37 hens and 35 cocks. They are played on widowhood with a partner who stays at home.  With 150 youngsters, which are played on nest, the future is prepared.

Captain Blue and Nancy, a dreamcouple

From the pigeons of Gaby, there are only a few pigeons here in Deinze that have no top prizes in their offspring. However, one combination stands out, namely Captain Blue x Nancy. Captain Blue was a beautiful inbreeding son of the world famous Bliksem. After so many years, Bliksem can be called one of the strongest progenitors in pigeon history.

Captain Blue coupled with Nancy was for Annick's strain the basic strain that produced many very good pigeons.

From this a number of basic couples arose such as :
“Orlando” (son Captain Blue x Nancy) x “Nicofelia”
“Vertigo” (grandson Wittenbuik) x “Lieske” (daughter Captain Blue x Nancy) who built up the Gabor-line.
“Tauber” (grandson Wittenbuik) x “Lieske” (daughter Captain Blue x Nancy) who later created Memphis, Kim,.....
“Tsaby” x “Kim” (parents of e.g. 1st national Guéret 2011) and parents and grandparents of top pigeons on our own loft but even more on other lofts.

What is so special about the Vandenabeele pigeons?  To this question Annick answers that they are very strong breeders which can easily be crossed with other bloodlines.  Moreover, they are naturally strong pigeons that easily fly at the top. What more could you want as a player?

It may also be said that Annick is very selective on the build of the pigeon. The performance is decisive but to get a permanent place on the breeding loft, they also have to be almost perfect in the hand.  This can also be seen in the offspring, all of them beautiful pigeons, with a soft plume, a spacious wing and a strong carcass.
