We already knew the partnership Thibaut-Boons for the fantastic performances they achieved throughout the years, mostly in the national championships of the KBDB. But what we didn't know was their ability to breed ace pigeons. It's quite extraordinary when you know that their best pigeons were sold in a total auction held in December 2012.
Today, on Monday February 8. , 5 new auctions started. These auctions will end on Sunday February 21.Vandaag, maandag 8 februari zijn er 5 nieuwe veilingen gestart. Deze veilingen eindigen allen op zondag 21 februari.

The pigeons of Bart & Nance were only transferred to their new loft in mid-April, since it was still under construction. As a result they had quite a difficult start to the season. Their pigeons gradually started to show their potential towards the end of the season, eventually winning a national second prize from Issoudun against 11,972 pigeons.
The winners of the most prestigious PIPA ranking of the year are finally known. This year, the top 3 is largely French, with Gerard Ledoux (Rollot, FR) finishing first and Alain & Valérie Pocholle (Morbecque, FR) winning the bronze medal. In between we have the number two, the international winner from this year's Pau race Joost De Smeyter.

De Favoriet put the De Saer pigeon family in the spotlight in 2015, winning a national first prize from Limoges and the title of 1st Provincial and 2nd National Ace Pigeon long distance KBDB.
