We had good weather conditions for the first weekend of June, but the slight east to north-east wind gave the pigeons a hard day after all. That is when the Vandenheede pigeons are at their best and they can show their strength. But from Chateauroux they were unlucky: this weekend’s national winner belongs to the same club, so they were beaten by that fancier at every level; from local to national, they had to be satisfied with second place! Take a look at the general results of the Vandenheede colony from Chateauroux:
Local 399 old birds: 2-3-4-8-20-32-44-52-53-76-91-106-122 (13/19) Prov. 3.852 old birds: 2-14-16-23… (only the top-50 is available) Nat. 16.479 old birds: 2-48-54-73-245-354-673-770-792… (14/19)
11 of their pigeons managed to classify per 10.
Local 464 yearlings: 2-4-5-11-13-15-20-21-24-28-34-37-40-41-42-44-47-49-52-53-69-71-73-80-81-82-83-84-87… (39/97) Prov. 3.960 yearlings: 2-5-9-30-32-40… (ony top-50 available) Nat. 15.902 yearlings: 2-10-31-125-131-166-206-207-234-274-361-368-439-466-479-499-515-524…
97 pigeons were sent in, 51 of which were successful, with 34 per 10!
But it was a third time lucky for this colony: from Limoges they finally pulled off a great win at provincial level.
Limoges Local 372 old birds: 1-6-8-13-17-18-19-25-28-31-32-38-44-46-56-57-65-66-67-68… (26/31) Prov. 3,420 old birds: 1-28-35… (only top-50 available) Nat. 13,781 old birds: 4…
The provincial winner from Limoges is the cock Chiadoo BE10-4101078, which stems from a crossing of the golden Freddy-line x Limoges De Rauw-Sablon. Last year this cock was already the best yearling from Limoges, so his victory in 2012 does not really come as a surprise. Here are some of his best results:
’12 Limoges Prov 3,420 p. 1 Nat. 13,781 p. 4 ’11 Limoges Prov 3,548 YL 1 Nat. 14,686 YL 2 ’10 Gueret Nat. 16,838 p. 57 ’11 Chateauroux 6,148 p. 135 ’11 La Châtre 7,487 p. 239 Ablis 685 p. 12 Ecouen 559 p. 26
Sire: Myachoo BE04-4277100… winner of the Guldensporen race from Blois against 7,485 youngsters and a 4th Prov Vierzon against 3,298 pigeons. He stems from a grandson of the breeding couple Antigoon x t Krijt: Wandaad 710/98 coupled with Christina 355/00.
Dam: Dochter Limoges BE07-4093399, which is dam of, for instance the 1st Prov Vierzon 2010, 7th Nat La souterraine against 17,814 pigeons etc. She is a daughter of the renowned breeder Limoges 261/91 De Rauw-Sablon (a son of the dream couple Albert x Paola) x Super Duper Love 243/04 (a granddaughter of Frans 875/94, and a son of Delirium x Dodo).

This makes Chiadoo a full brother of Annika BE10-4101204, which won the 1st Prov Vierzon yearlings last year, and also winner of, for instance:
Vierzon Prov 4,366 YL 1 Bourges 1,294 p. 2 Angerville 436 p. 3 Ablis 685 p. 7 Ablis 173 p. 10 Argenton Nat 22,442 p. 845
It appears that there is plenty of talent in this family.
It was another successful weekend for Freddy & Jacques, another one in their already successful career. Limoges was their first provincial first place this season! A good start is half the battle; we wonder what will come next. They are well on their way this season, everything seems to work out fine in Zingem. This means that they are ready to take a few great results and probably some important victories! Congratulations!
