Doldersum & son (Westerhaar) with National Ace bird “Tijn” as base
15 Dec 2020
Westerhaar: Father-son combination Hilbert and Rik Doldersum are sometimes also called the ‘canons of the East’. A name that they got thanks to their iron strong pigeon game. Especially on the short distance and middle distance race they know how to handle things. Top results thanks to their solid breeding base which is built on direct pigeons from Leo Heremans, Stefaan Lambrechts, Rudy Van Reeth, Telmer-Wittenbrink and Eijerkamp Hans Evert-Jan.

Rik and his father Hilbert noticed this rather quickly and that’s why children to ‘Tijn’ were hardly raced from then on but got direct a spot on the breeding loft. The perfect move as also in 2nd generation the grandchildren from ‘Tijn’ shine as no other.
