Dieter BALLMANN, Amblève

"Where there is a will, there is a way!"

That is how I would like to describe Dieter's colony. After all, living in the East of the country, Amblève, (Amel) ... One of the 9 municipalities of German-speaking Belgium belonging to the province of Liège, adjacent to the Luxembourg and Germany. A place where racing pigeons is very difficult, let alone winning. There are multiple obstacles: the mountainous region, the hilly plateau slowing down the pigeon to name but a few. It is definitely more difficult and there usually is head wind and mass at the pigeons disadvantage. This calls for pigeons that stand out from the crowd and choose their way home independently. Go-getters.
Hence Dieter Ballmann has created his own kind. Through years of selection and the willpower of the fancier as well as the art of breeding, he has managed to build a group of "go-getters". Pigeons with character who love a bit more of a challenge, enjoy spending hours in the air and have the willpower to keep going when most pigeons stop!
There is proof in abundance.

The foundations were laid by two superior breeding cocks; two brothers worth their weight in gold for breeding:
The "820" and the "707"
B 94-1006820
B 94-1006707
Father: 1023197/88 (2 x 1st Barcelona)
GV. : DV 07396-87-1304 Grandson Witslager Desender - The Witslager was a famous cock who became 1 NAT Ace Long Distance KBDB and achieved a marvelous list of victories: 2 NAT St.Vincent 1374 p - 3 NAT St. Vincent 3735 p - 5 NAT Cahors 2825 p - 10 NAT Montauban 2155 p - 20 NAT St. Vincent 2952 p - 37 NAT Cahors 3704 p - ……
The line of this “Witslager” ca, amsp be found in other famous birds such as the 1 + 2 NAT Limoges’78 - 7083 p (R Florizoone) - the 1 NAT Limoges’87 - the 1 NAT Tulle (Kleine Felix) by Roger Vereecke - … and his “Kleine Barcelona” - 083-94, with 16 IN.Nat Barcelona’98 - 24139 p - 51 IN.Nat Barcelona’97 - 24908 p - 79 IN.Nat Barcelona’96 - 20123 p… carries this blood …
GM. :1032326/83 line "Gouden Koppel Gilmont" , (Valencia x Gorin)
This couple consisted of the VANBRUANE 979-67 (son of the 2 Nat Périgueux) x sister 1 NAT Barcelona (further in this we find Tarzan with 1 I.Nat St Sebastian and the Stier with 1 I. Nat Pau) - He was always matched with Louque 309-67, a direct A Gorin,
mother. : 1022909/88, mother 820 and 707
GV. : 3364120/83 granddaughter "Super Crack Grusson" Yet another exceptional cock with an impressive list of achievements, including: 1 Nat. St Vincent ' 72 - 1 Nat Barcelona ' 74 - 1 Nat + 1 IN. Nat Narbonne ' 74, this Super Crack can be found in countless national winners and ace flyers.
GM. : 1032339/86 line "Gouden Koppel Gilmont" (Van Bruaene x Gorin)
Is a sister of the 326, so both grandmothers are two sisters.

The 820 became father of the
1 NAT Brive '01 - 22026 p
1 NAT Perpignan '04 - 6489 p

Both brothers became phenomenal standard-bearers of the Ballmann colony.
Therefore we find their lineage in over 75% of the colony.
Some super performances of their descendants are:
1 Nat.Tulle’15
1 Nat Narbonne’15
1 IN. Nat Barcelona’15

The last few years, this basis was complemented with pigeons from, amongst others
Berthus Wijnacker Nl Pauluspolder (Vandervelden – Vander Espt),
Nouwen-Paesen, Yvon Deneufbourg, Rudolf Grün( Hausoul-Van Dommelen)
Emile Denys, Eddy d’Heedene, the late Jules Flagothier Joseph Schmitz (Baelen).
Remy Speltdoorn, Rob Nijs.

A good learning school at a young age

The youngsters are trained with the pigeons of the province of Luxembourg. This is the line of the Route du Rhône - we can compare these flights with the "mountain stages from the tour of France" - they should be capable. Those who remain become yearlings after which the preference goes to the races from 500 to 600 km. They are played in ful celibacy (no hens). As 2-year-olds, they are further trained to turn into true "marathon flyers", ideally on flights such as Cahors, Agen. Of course, with the predilection for taking part in the Internationals (Marseille-Barcelona-Perpignan) later. This requires work, insight and patience of the fancier.

Some superior distance racers that still today the broad base forms of this colony:
