Kees Nijeboer (De Pollen, NL) sees the star of the Kleine Sola dynasty constantly rising!

Kleine Sola is one of the greatest icons of the Eastern Netherlands, in the lofts of Kees Nijeboer.

A pigeon born from the crossing of an outstanding father x an amazing mother: the best of Pieter Veenstra x a super-descendant of Verkerk's famous Olympic Solange family. Kleine Sola gloriously won 1st Nat. Troyes against 17,531 pigeons and is the leader of an excellent dynasty.

The peace Kees Nijeboer radiates conceals his strong drive to achieve outstanding performances in the pigeon sport. Winning the 1st NPO Mantes La Jolie province 9 against 5,929 p. in 2012 with NL12-1204811 Special Adelita fueled that drive in Kees; success left the down-to-earth Tukker wanting more. Targeted purchases were made from the great masters Gerard & Bas Verkerk, Pieter Veenstra, and Willem de Bruijn that would mark the start of a very successful period.

Kleine Sola: a direct hit

Kees hit right off the bull's eye with the pairing of the couple Luan x Daughter Sola. It was this couple that gave him his NL14-1578572 Kleine Sola. In 2014, winner of 1st National Troyes youngsters 17,351 pigeons, and then placed directly into the breeding loft. Kees: “It was a great boost that I was immediately successful with the new breeding material. And Kleine Sola is so marvelous that I was convinced her descendants would ensure even more success”. This assumption proved to be right. And the fact that his connoisseur's eye did not let him down is confirmed by Kleine Sola’s (grand)children winning, among other victories:

1st Weert 1,560 p. / 2nd prov. 8.605 p. (for J. Doldersum, Jr.) 1st Laon 1,428 p. 1st Peronne 706 p. 1st Chateauroux - 395 p. 2019 3rd NPO Chateaudun - 1,764 p. / 1st - 103 p. 2018 4th NPO Chateaudun - 3,115 p. / 1st - 134 p. 2020 9th NL sprint pigeon PIPA Ranking (for J. Doldersum, Jr.)
