The father **Heinz-Jozef Freialdenhofen** (64 years old and more then 50 years as a pigeon fancier) has been a champion on short and middle distance since he started. When he oldest son **Dirk Freialdenhofen** (36 years and 25 years as a pigeon fancier) started helping with the birds, they decided to enter the international very long distance races: Barcelona, Pau, Marseille, Dax and Perpignan. The first top prizes were won in 1994, the year that the other son **Heiko** (30 years and 15 years as a pigeon fancier) joined the family hobby. They won '13th national Champion Long Distance' for the first time in 1995. They have always been on top ever since. They could win many times the best series of birds on these races against Belgium, The Netherlands or France. Freialdenhofen & sons are with no doubt the best long distance racers in Germany.

**The strain Freialdenhofen for the very long distance**

Dirk Freialdenhofen met the famous Albert Simons from Maaseik (Belgium), who lived in Roosteren (The Netherlands) in those days. But the family visited this fancier Simonsfor the first time in 1987. The family Freialdenhofen was thinking about the very long distance racers and were impressed by the birds of **Albert Simons**. Several eggs and youngsters were bought in 1991 at the loft Simons and these birds became the basic strain in the "new" generation of birds Freialdenhofen. One of these basic birds is **'Doffertje 733'** or 'NL91/2899733', direct A. Simons. He is a grandson of **'Oud Doffertje 4'**, son of the legendary 'Oud Doffertje' from **A & L van der Wegen X daughter of** **'Perpignan'** (1st nat. Perpignan, 13th nat. Bordeaux, 20th nat. Perpignan, 64-81 nat. Barcelona
) and son of **'Oud Doffertje 1'** the basic cock on the loft Simons. 'Doffertje 733' became the direct sire of many excellent racers like 1st international Dax Euregio, 4th nat. Dax, 5th nat. Bergerac, 12th nat. Bordeaux, 40th nat. Cahors, 45th nat. Pau, 46th nat. Dax, 51st nat. Pau
Other long distance was bought at the famous **Saya brothers** from Maastricht (NL). The most important breeders from today are **'Max"** NL97/2039867', direct from Saya. He is a son of the famous **'Bonte Marathon NL92/1821411'**, which won 7th nat. Barcelona, 9th nat. Perpignan, 29-38th nat. Marseille
The dame of **'Joop 756'** is **'Abor NL88/2522744'**, direct daughter of **'Abor'**, which won 4th and 4th nat. Barcelona, 31st nat. Marseille. ''Max' NL97/2039867'; is the direct father of **'Forrest Gump'** and **'The last Son of MAX"** but more about this cocks later. At the same time as the birds from Saya, birds from **Yves van de Poel-Buckley** (Geetsbets, Belgium) were bought. The main hen from this strain is **'Dochter De 848'** B96/2270528'. She is from '2441848/90' strain **P. v/d Eynde x v/d Poel/Buckley** (won 26th intern. Barcelona '95, 53rd intern. Marseille '95, 360-164 intern. Perpignan) and **'La Prima Donna** 2441818/90' strain P. v/d Eynde x Kuypers (won 40th intern. Barcelona 1994, 159th intern. Perpignan 1994, 959th intern. Barcelona 1993). 'Dochter 848' is the direct mother of **'Forrest Gump"** and **'Irun Lady"** Some other birds were bought in Germany at the loft **Hans-Dieter Rass** from Bedburg-Hau. Freialdenhofen bought children from 1st and 5th nat. Barcelona 1993 + a sister of 1st nat. Barcelona 1993. From **Dieter Tetz** from Jülich-Welldorf, came birds from the strains **Kuypers brothers, Jan Theelen** and **Peter van de Eynden**. One of the main breeding hens is **'04487-89-776'** from **Willy Mundt**, strain **100% Vanbruaene**. The last strain on this loft is bought from **Harry & Roger Wijnands** (Maastricht NL (Linie Blauwe Vanoppen and Gehamerde). From the Loft **Kurvers De Weerd** Hulsberg NL (son and Daughter **Perpignan King"**) Most of these strains are crossed. The best combinations is Crossbreeding from Ace-Pigeon lines. The cocks get several hens each year. They want to found out the best combination and it can always be better.

**Method**

The family Freialdenhofen races on the very long distance with the system total widowhood 120 racing pigeons. They have about 300 pigeons in Winter: 40 cocks for breeding, 80 hens for breeding In the summer an additional 130 youngsters for the very long distances A lot of work but it are the job of the whole family Freialdenhofen. The racing birds are paired for the first time in February and the second time in April. They can breed on the eggs for about 5 days. The birds do not fly out during the winter. The danger of the many birds of prey is very big. All birds stay in the loft from August until February. The cocks and hens get a cure against Paratyphoid during 10 days in February and a cure of 5 days against cancer in the beginning of May. This cure is done for the second time 14 days before basketing of Pau. The cocks are trained for 25 minutes in the evening in the beginning of the racing season. The family Freialdenhofen do not want the racers in big forme in the beginning of the season. More training begins in June. Now the cocks train 45 minutes in the morning and 45-60 minutes in the evening. Hens only train 60 minutes in the evening. Youngsters are judged on health, not on results or pedigree. Ventilation of the wing is very important. Yearlings are judged on results! The yearling hens and cocks race 2 x 850 km, old cocks and hens 2-3 times more than 900 km. The birds that arrive from a big international race get a diet mixture and tea (Pigeon Tea Special from Kreutzer). After this a few days vitamins and Belgasol + BS (Belgica-De Weerd)They get a mixture for widowhood the following days. Hens do not get so many as the cocks. All birds get extra corn and seeds of sunflower a few days before basketing and also products of vet Peeters. When problems of the head appear, always Orni-Specia + WN Red of Belgica-De Weerd. All racing birds get tea every Saturday and Sunday. During moult a light mixture and two times a week garlic x VS Special (Kreutzer) and on Sunday tea of Kreutzer. During racing are the birds each 2-3 weeks examined by vet Peeters or R. Hendrix.
