The pigeon who will represent our country in the category H (extreme middle distance) will bear a strong relation to the Thibaut-Boons loft as the pigeon from the Herbots Bros (1st belgian representative Cat. H) is nothing but a granddaughter of Kimi, the pigeon who set the lofts of Thibaut-Boons on the international pigeon map after he had won the title of National Ace Pigeon Middle Distance KBDB in 2005, while being also a part of the team who won the national title of Champion Middle Distance KBDB!
Kimi (who is a grandson of the Pros, basis pigeons in Sombreffe) had been bought by the Herbots family after his triumph and he just let an indelible mark in their loft as their Els, the olympic hen of the Herbots Bros, has the blood of this National Ace Pigeon running in her veins !

2012, a wonderful year !
The racers of Jean-Marc were on the right track during the 2012 season and they dominated the provincial middle distance events. This could only lead to a few honourable classifications in numerous championships and we have all listed them for you :

Due to the large amount of classifications obtained in various championships, we have limited ourselves to the provincial & national level as well as the championships from La Colombophilie Belge (LCB). Jean-Marc has won no less than 5 differents titles of champion, 5 x 2nd and 1 x 3rd! An exceptional balance for our friend! It is now time to introduce to you the pigeons that made this possible.
Nitra 2013 thanks to Rihanna
We said it above, Jean-Marc already had the opportunity to classify one of his pigeon during the Olympiads of Poznan in 2011 thanks to his Nels, a direct son of his Old Pros who had a strong performance list in the middle distance races. He just made it a second time thanks to the results obtained by Rihanna, one of the best pigeons that flew in Belgium in 2012! Have a look:

A sensational racing hen who was basketed for 13 weeks in a row starting at the end of May and who was entered for 10 longer middle distance races in a row, so more than 5,000 kilometers/prizes! With her Olympic classification in Nitra, this flying machine harvests the fruits of her efforts! But when you take a look at her pedigree, you notice that she comes from the best:
Father: Alpha, direct Ghenen-Peeters (NL), he has Koopman blood in his veins and comes from the lines of the Kleine Dirk, Kannibaal, etc. The top of the top!
Mother: Shakira, the super breeding hen of the loft, directly purchased at Deno-Herbots and daughter of the Blauwe Bliksem x Violetta, a.o. parents of Gina, 1st National Ace Pigeon Longer Middle Distance KBDB '08. She became a supreme breeding hen as she is mother of numerous racers like La 12, Prodigia, Lisa, Matis, etc. But her superior genes are easily transmitted to her descendant as she is already grand-mother of solid guys like Raikonen, Gloria, etc.

Father: Philou, descendant of the old lines from the loft of Thibaut-Boons, its not the first time that he gives something good as he is the father of Lio who won Châteauroux 2/1.132 & Bourges 30/5.066
Mother: Grand daughter Kimi, so from the terrific Kimi who decidedly had a lot of influence on the middle distance events of our country in 2012!

Why a total auction ?
Running a busy business dedicated to animal welfare, he has simply decided to take some rest concerning the pigeon sport as it causes him a lot of stress. He also needs to focus more on his family so that's why the choice of a total auction was quite inevitable. However, Jean-Marc will continue with his 2012 generation and, who knows, he will probably come back stronger than ever in a few years! As he has a lot of pigeon skills, we don't doubt of that!
Jean-Marc, good luck for the rest of your career and take care!
