Duo Van Eynde-Goovaerts (Putte, BE) made their mark on the heavy middle distance in the past seasons

Marc Van Eynde and Joseph/Seppe Goovaerts joined the national top, thanks to their Tornado-pair. These dominant breeding lines were later strengthened by introducing other bloodlines. Their results prove the success of this breeding strategy!

The results of the past seasons were simply fantastic. Between 2016 and 2021, a staggering 14x National Top 10 spots were managed. This doesn't come out of the blue. No, this is the result of a solid stock, built up from quality pigeons in combination with hard work and dedication:

Success doesn't just happen, so we would like to tell the story from the beginning. A first important step in the stock development was the introduction of pigeons from Flor Engels & Sons, in the late eighties. Without hesitation, pigeons were bought from the best lines including descendants from Oude Witpender, den 231, Dikke, Witte,...From 2004 onwards pigeons from Gaston Van de Wouwer were added, amongst which 3 children to Kaasboer. From the combination Engels x Van de Wouwer, the golden stock pair was born. Stock cock BE04-6356585, a grandson of Den 231 of Engels and also grandson of Den Bourges from Dirk Van Dyck is the cock of the Tornado pair. 

The hen of the Tornado pair, Kaasboerin BE05-6341163, is a daughter of Kaasboer from Gaston Van de Wouwer. 

The Tornado pair became parents of a.o.: 

  • Tornado Tom 795-10
  • Lady Tornado 821-10
  • Witoger Tornado (Super breeder Ulrich Lemmens, Balen, BE)
  • Tornado Queen 175-09
  • Tornado Tim 794-10
  • Tornado 228-09 (Top breeder Gaston van de Wouwer, a.o. father of 039-11 N. & S. Ally)
  • Blauwe Tornado 005-09 (Grandfather of the stock cock at Paul Jamar, Rummen, BE)
  • Tornado King 710-10 (Father Obelix, who in turn is father of Blauwe Limoges) 
  • Tornadina 820-10 (mother of a.o. Els I 328-15, Els II 329-15 and Blauw 428-15)
  • Tornado Crash 601-10 (grandfather of Nafi 604-17)
  • Tornado Prins 339-11
  • Tornado Favoriet Sep 605-12 (father Prinses Jana, who in turn is mother of 141-16 and 142-16)

The Tornado pair are (grand)parents of

The success that followed from the Tornado pair, was reason enough for Marc and Seppe to visit Gaston Van de Wouwer once again in 2007. This time, they primarily invested in grandchildren from Kaasboer, including 2 sons of Rik 098Blauwe Stonne (BE07-6385730) and Beauty Gaston (BE07-6385731).

They both grew up to become stock cocks! They are (grand)father of:

2nd Nat. Chateauroux 9,540 p.
5th Nat. Chateauroux 6,306 p.
6th Nat. Chateauroux 17,269 p.
7th Nat. La Souterraine 16,665 p.
7th Nat. Argenton 13,730 p.
13th Nat. Argenton 26,085 p.
18th Nat. Tulle 7,322 p.
1st Zone Blois 2,035 p.
Rikske 018, son of Blauwe Stonne (BE07-6385730)
Grandson Rik 641, also a son of Blauwe Stonne (BE07-6385730)

In 2009 and 2010 pigeons were exchanged with Gaston. Both lofts managed to benefit from this, the exchange gave a great quality injection. In Putte, two superior stock hens were discovered. The first is Mother Prinses Jana (BE09-6358771).

She is (grand)mother of: 

1st Nat. Montluçon 10,753 p. & fastest against 20,214 p.(Prinses Jana BE15-6178447)
13th Nat. Argenton 26,085 p.
28th Nat. Argenton 3,966 p.
41st Nat. Chateauroux 19,529 p.
50th Nat. Bourges 12,449 d.

Mother Prinses Jana is also mother of Broer Prinses Jana 645-17 and Rikske 018-16.

 

The other stock hen that resulted from the exchange of pigeons between Van Eynde-Goovaerts and Gaston Van de Wouwer is Blue Marie (BE10-6163831).

Blue Marie, as a mother, is responsible for the following top results: 

7th Nat. Bourges 38,456 p.
16th Nat. Chateauroux 4,631 p.
47th Nat. Chateauroux 22,196 p.
56th Nat. Issoudun 18,176 p.
61st Nat. Issoudun 14,758 p.
1st Prov. Vierzon 1,827 p.

From the results above, the 7th Nat. Bourges and 16th Nat. Chateauroux were on account of Bourgeske 554-17. 

Father of Bourgeske 554-17 is Porthos (BE13-6095077). He is a son of Marc Superkweker (BE07-6320827).

It quickly became clear that the crossing Engels x Van de Wouwer is a golden combination, with the Tornado pair as the prime example...Marc and Seppe went back to the Engels family to buy to direct sons from the famous 178-94. Especially Blauwe BE03-6226296, was a fantastic purchase and became father of Marc Superkweker. This star became father of a.o. the following super pigeons: 

  • Porthos 077-13, father of Bourgeske 554-17
  • Athos 711-13 (father of Nafi 604-17)
  • Constance 712-13, mother of Annemieke 382-15
  • D'Artagnan 093-13
  • Aramis 158-13
  • Blauwe Musketier 978-14
  • Columbus 863-10 (Top breeder at Wim De Troy)
    Columbus is father of Wim 021 (top breeder at Gaston Van de Wouwer) and father of Miss Anvers 056-18 (4x Top 25 National)
    He is also grandfather of Nafi 050-20: 1st Nat. Argenton 9,847 p.

Fantastic results thanks to an excellent stock 

For years, Marc and Seppe built up a colony of pigeons to be successful on heavy middle distance races on a National and Provincial level. This goal was quickly realized. In the years that followed, only the best was good enough to develop the stock further. The stock was strengthened with a well though out plan, primarily with pigeons from fanciers close by such as Engels and Van de Wouwer. Through this process, they managed to raise the bar even further, with sensational results as a consequence. Marc and Seppe's palmares is highly impressive. Even more so when you take into account that they each combine pigeon sport with a job. With clear arrangements, effort and a great colony, these men from Putte are often the ones to beat. Every season again, they find themselves amongst the champions and at the top of the charts on National and Provincial races. True class and quality will always find its way to the top!
