There is a saying that goes "good things come in threes", and that is spot on for the pigeon breed from Olsene: Rocco, Robby and Robin are the Holy Trinity for the Dobbelaere family.
Rocco: winner of four first prizes in the club, plus a 5. Nat. Limoges 10,554 p. ’17 etc.
Robin: A super class pigeon in Philippe Dobbelaere's collection that gained an international reputation as 1st National Libourne against 8,959 pigeons. He also won a 5th Nat. Limoges, and he went on to win a title of 1st Nat. Ace Pigeon long distance & extreme long distance YLs KBDB 2019, which was a stellar result!
Robby: A powerful racing bird and a full brother of Rocco. He won a title of 7th Nat. Ace Pigeon long distance KBDB 2019 (including a 3rd Nat. Libourne) and 5 x Top-100 National. Robby's own nest brother is the sire of Robin.
The Rocco dynasty stepped up again this season to demonstrate its enormous racing potential. Take for instance Renée (BE20-4126809) and Rocky (BE18-4076108), a sister and brother of Robby and Rocco. Renée is the proud winner in Sermaises (1st of 2274 pigeons), and Rocky has been quite successful too, winning a 55th nat. Argenton, 70th nat. Souilac, 55th prov. Vierzon, 68th nat (z) Chateauroux etc.
Three other pigeons that are worth a mention are Hoek, Jan and Giliam. Hoek (BE-17-4197510) was 2nd Olympic Hope Ace (Cat. h) Belgium 2020 and he was also 14th PIPA Ranking long distance (4 races). Jan (BE19-409934) claimed a title of 14th nat. ace pigeon KBDB shorter middle distance 2020, while Giliam (BE-18-4076038) ended the season as 2nd Olympic Ace Middle Distance (cat. B) Belgium 2020. The team from Olsene has a bright future indeed.
