The report we published last week showed the efficient qualities of the Thibaut-Boons pigeons, a loft rich of numerous national ace pigeons as well as some pigeons able to shine on the national races. But what is even more remarkable is how the Thibaut-Boons pigeons allowed several other fanciers to book the same kind of results, once again with national ace pigeons and early prizes on the national races. We made a small balance of the main references booked in various lofts thanks to the Thibaut-Boons pigeons:
Patrick Dupuis (Belgium)

Vandenabeele), in fact the mother of 'Thiam’ who won in 2015 the 1st national Argenton against 21,915 p. (highest speed from 25,927 p.).

Won in 2018 the 1st national Libourne against 2,887 yearlings. The father of the national winner is an original Thibaut-Boons, out of a crossing Vieux Pros x Blauwe Bliksem x De Rauw, the ideal crossing from the very start of the Thibaut-Boons combination.
