Rino Verheye’s super strong Provincial Ace Pigeons

What Rino Verheye has achieved since 2015 with his lofts in the middle distance, and with a rather limited team of pigeons, is nothing short of impressive!

Not many people can say that in 5 years’ time they’ve won 4 times the 1. Prov. Ace Pigeon Allround KBDB.  But Rino can definitely say that!

Also, in the national championships of the KBKB in the middle distance, in the last 5 seasons, Rino has taken significant steps forward. If you are looking for a loft that is on the rise, Rino’s loft is the place to be! Not to mention the following consecutive KBDB champion titles:

2016: 23. Nat. Champion KBDB KHF old + yearlings & 32. Nat. champion KBDB GHF youngsters 2017: 13. Nat. Champion KBDB KHF old + yearlings 2018: 10. Nat. Champion KBDB GHF old 2019: 8. Nat. Champion KBDB KHF old + yearlings 2020: 3. Nat. Champion KBDB GHF youngsters

Jommeke

The number one of Rino Verheye’s colony is undoubtedly "Jommeke" (BE16-3005665) 1. Prov. Ace Pigeon KBDB, both in 2016 and 2017! A real treasure, bred from "Hells Angel" BE14-3003419 and Rino’s stock dam: "Sister Baron" BE08-3166809.

Hells Angel won 5 x 1st and became 4th Prov. Ace Pigeon KBDB 2017. Sister Baron is - as her name indicates - a sister of Luc Senaeve’s Baron. This star racer won 52 prizes in 5 years, of which 36 prizes per 10. With Sister Baron, Rino brought pure breeding gold to his lofts. In the meanwhile, this stock dam is also the mother of among others:

 

1. Prov. Ace Pigeon KBDB Allround 2016 1. Prov. Ace Pigeon KBDB Allround 2017 1. Ace pigeon "Ace of aces" LCB 2016 1. Ace pigeon "Speed" LCB 2016 13. Nat. Ace Pigeon KBDB KHF 2017 1. Prov. Chateauroux 3,084 p. ...

The first child that was ever bred with Jommeke, the BE17-3029723 immediately won the 1. Prov. Brionne against 4,440 pigeons.

The nest brother of Jommeke is Jerommeke, BE16-3005666. Jerommeke, too, flew extremely well with among others 1. Fontenay 201 p. and 14. Nat. Gueret 5,331 pigeons.

Since 2016, 53 of Rino’s pigeons classified among the provincial ace pigeons. In 2020 alone, 26 pigeons already classified at the provincial ace pigeons. An overview:

Not only do the Verheye pigeons excel in their own loft, but in other lofts, too, the birds of this lineage manage a first-rate performance. Up to provincial and national victories ...

The future looks bright

What Rino Verheye has been able to achieve in recent years shows great class. He is setting a new standard in the middle distance, and with the breeding line around Jommeke it looks like it’s gonna be tougher and tougher to compete Rino in the coming years. It’s up to the opponents to try and grow to that same level. Easier said than done!
