Has it something to do with ‘telepathy’ or not… the fact is that the ‘Laureaat Barcelona’ BE92-4428350 left this life just 2 days after his owner Remi Gyselbrecht… it’s as if he felt this loss, wanted to be with his owner for eternity, wanted to be united with him, wanted to accompany him on his journey to the afterlife!
The LAUREAAT BARCELONA BE92-4428350
1° International Barcelona 20.925 p. in 1995
197° National Brive 21.390 p. in 1995
With this he was also winner of the ‘Gouden Vleugel’ from the Bruges Barcelona club! He later grew to become the figurehead of the colony. He stems from the “Laureaat 972/86” (direct A.Vanbruane) x “Jupiter-hen 847/91” (direct Andre Brouckaert, Wervik). But most of all, he developed into a sensational ‘super breeder’, who in turn was to lie at the basis of numerous phenomenal crack pigeons in the long distance and extreme long distance… even several (inter)national winners have the golden blood of this wonder pigeon flowing through their veins!
The ‘Laureaat Barcelona’ has been infertile since 2000, but enjoyed his retirement in the aviaries of the breeding lofts of Dr.Carlo Gyselbrecht… until this morning, when he breathed his last breath!
