The past weekend the OVRF raced from Prieska. Both races were won by members of the Lindley Posduifklub. Thomas Uys won the youngbird race and Callie Grove the open race. Well done guys!
Below is Callie with his open winner. It’s a pure Tom Lock pigeon. The pigeon’s father is 17 years old this year! He is from the 13/16 line and was a gift from Peet Germishuizen. “Oud maar nog nie koud”
Descendants of our SUMO family of pigeons continue to win for various fanciers.
One of the characteristics of having a “family” of pigeons is to breed winners down the generations including closely related to each other.
The SUMOs are proving that they can transfer their winning genes to the next generations. This makes us very proud.
It recently came to our attention that the famous “GPU hen”, that was bred by us, has also bred winners (club and organisation).
Some of her grandchildren were recently auctioned online for R11 500 and R7 500 respectively.
This family of pigeons has made a huge impact on our loft. The past weekend we raced 1,2 club (5,6 union) with very closely related pigeons.

This weekend marks the start of the 2019 racing season for many organisations.
May you have a blessed and very enjoyable season. Enjoy racing your pigeons, and always put their interest before your own.
A very fitting piece from Proverbs 27: 1 – 2 to keep in mind:
“1. Do not boast about tomorrow,for you do not know what a day may bring.
2. Let another praise you, and not your own mouth;a stranger, and not your own lips.”
Our team is doing really well with their road training thus far. Losses are minimal, and their condition is good. A lot of work lies ahead though…
Time to get them fit and ready for roadwork…
