22/10/2020 - Successful restart
After no less than 34 years raced together as partnership Van der Stouwe-Douna with great successes, this "marriage" has now ended after good consultation.
Next year Dolf and Henk will each go their own way. Dolf will fly with his son and Henk under the name Henk Douna.
On the late tour Henk started at his address with 33 youngsters from the 2nd round. These pigeons are therefore all intended for a restart next year.
After fifteen training sessions and 5 late-tour races, all 33 youngsters were still present!
Apparently they like the new loft.
The pigeons were not darkened and were on 3 to 4 old feathers during the late races. The last weeks of the late season they were lightened to temper the moult somewhat.
The first results were right on the late tour.
In the area:
- 3rd loft champion Late races not nominated,
- 1st loft champion Late races nominated
- 1st and 3rd Pigeon Champion Late races in Friesland '96 section 11:
- 3rd Pigeon Champion Late races with NL20-1054739
NL20-1054739 is a blue bar cock whose father is the Eijerkamp pigeon "Smokey Jackpot" (out of son Vetblauwe Jackpot"Vetblauwe Jackpot" x "Gucci") and as mother a daughter of "Olympic Marjolien" of Meindert de Jong.
The NL20-739 wins:
- 17th Venlo against 2,302 pigeons
- 36th Kalkar against 13,922 pigeons
- 37th Burdinne against 1.086 pigeons
