Gert And Frans Rondags from Spouwen - sensational class on short distance and middle distance
22 Feb 2020
Those who followed the Rondags colony in 2018 would have maybe hoped they'ld do worse in 2019. The youngsters came home like a train and if these youngsters would do that again the year after it would be amazing. But it became so much more, Frans & Gert won 4 National Ace birds on the short distance with always a 2nd place with the old and yearling birds. The problem sometimes when having so many good ones is that it might be that the ace bird maybe gets in as 3rd on the loft which makes a huge difference. But even then they were farout the best colony on the short distance races and showed themselves the entire year trough. This resulted in becoming the 1st Provincial Champion KBDB Limburg and in December the result came that they would also win the most wanted title of the 'Gouden Duif' together with the title of 'Superstart Short Distance' within the same competition. Really unique which was the real icing on the cake.
Off course they want to be in at the same level next year and the youngsters did especially well on the middle distance and greater middle distance in 2019 which makes the season of 2020 one to look forward.
We are truly very proud that we can offer 10 pigeons out of their breeders in an online action that will end on Monday 24/02/2020 on our website.
The rating of these pigeons were extremely high which confirms the quality of this loft.

When we go back into the past there were top pigeons like “BE 04-5136212” Tom with 16 pure 1st prizes and “BE 05-5076817” Lewis with 9 pure 1st prizes and were the flag barers from the colony of father Laurent who raced at that time together with Frans. Now anno 2020 these two base pigeons are still to be found in almost every one of the best pigeons of the current colony.
Both pigeons were offspring of “De Bom” who won himself also 11 pure 1st prizes. Winners out of winners, this is how the story continues over here.
Now on the current breeding loft “Lewis” and “Tom” couldn't be taken out anymore and were being crossed in with pigeons from Paul Huls ( Olympiad strain, Kannibolleke is strain Kannibaal Dirk Van Dijck ) and Leo Heremans. This last one was a hit in the ros. A daughter to “Tom” is BE 08-5169581, she was being coupled against “Bolt” BE 12-6123198 from Leo Heremans who became 1st National Ace bird Short Distance KBDB 2012 at Paul Huls. Out of this coupling you have “Mister Bolt” BE 12-5164535 who is the new golden vein within this colony.
“Mister Bolt” BE 12-5164535
“BE 17-5119450” Boela – 2 Nat Ace bird KBDB Short distance old 2019
“BE 17-5119316” Nina – 5 Nat Ace bird KBDB Short distance old 2019

One that has been a true top breeder the past few years is “BE 09-5118165” Den 165. This was the best youngster from Paul Huls in 2009 and is inbred Figo 1st National Bourges Reynaert. This blood strain was then again crossed in with “Tom” and again bulls' eye.
