Devooght Gaston & Danny, "National Champions Long Distance (2004)"


De Haan, the city in West-Flanders, was recently the centre of the pigeon world. They made an end to a period of 5 years in which they performed not really the way they should… The father-son combination is back where they belong, at the top! On an impressive way they made a comeback at the national level of pigeonsport. They became National Champion Long Distance 2004. It is very remarkable they won this title with an extremely low coefficient (11.46%). Not only this low coefficient is impressive, also the way in which they achieved these results… They needed 6 results to win this title, and they won it with 6 different pigeons!! This is very impressive and it prooves that the loft of Gaston and Danny Devooght does not consist of 1 or 2 good pigeons but of many super pigeons. Gastond and Danny don't deny that they didn't perform very well the last years… The most important reason for this is because they sold too many pigeons and the pigeons they bought weren't as good as their own pigeons… They saw that every pigeon fancier with Devooght pigeons achieved impressive results except for themselves. The solution was very easy, they bought pigeons from fanciers who had good results with the Devooght pigeons and in this way they gave their loft back their original strength… We have learned our lesson now, says Gaston. He believes that it it's much more difficult to breed top pigeons then most people say or think. That's why they probably won't sell any of their best pigeons anymore in the future.
