Frans Rutten lives in Horst in North Limburg, he plays top both in his department and at national level and has already achieved some top performances as a young handsome.

He became National Loft Champion youngsters in 2007 and 2011, in addition to several NPO victories in the middle distance races thanks to the extremely strong base of the Koopman pigeons.
Frans chose to invest in the Gerard Koopman pigeons in the period around 2007, he achieved results very quickly, making this bloodline the basis of his colony.

With “Miss Pitha” he won 1st NPO Pithiviers 11,852 pigeons and “Miss Lin” 1st NPO Pithiviers 14,959 pigeons, which mainly thanks to stock cock “Willem” for several top exploits in several generations.
Of course you cannot build on 1 line and he looked for other top material that he found at Wilberg Tauben. DV 0712-10-471 is a blue cock that came from “Champ” from Marijke Vink, the son of “Tips” x “Jean” coupled to the “Schone Kannibaaltje” which was bred out of “De Kannibaal” x “Sister Rambo ” by Dirk van Dyck.

He became father of “Aike”, “Anne” and “Annelee”. The latter won 1st Ace pigeon 2015 and 2016 and in 2017 became 5th Ace pigeon Limburg in the one day long distance. “Aike” became 9th Ace Pigeon middle distance Limburg with 2nd NPO Argenton 2,694p, 21st NPO Lorris 9,017p and 28th NPO Lorris 12.917p.

With such pigeons Frans was able to go to war and for several years continued to build up a stock with these crossings, which was strengthened in 2015 with pigeons from Jo & Florian Hendriks. Also here in the Koopman blood and especially the line of "Kleine Gerard" had inspired him to bring in new talent for Horst.
