Bosmans-Leekens - 1. Interprov. Gueret 600 km!


In February 2014 at the pigeonshow in Dortmund, we came by chance to sit at the table with Marc Bosman. We had a good time, and since then we kept in touch. It turned out that Marc and his partner Dirk Leekens were extremely successful on the national races in Belgium. In 2014 the results were real super and we were proud to have to opportunity to sell 10 youngsters from their breeding pigeons late 2014. They were sold to Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Belgium og Mexico and the quality was high! It will be interesting to follow the results from these nice pigeons!

2012 was the first year for this combination formed by Dirk Leekens and Mark Bosmans after Dirk Leekens sold all his pigeons in 2011.
Mark persuaded Dirk to race together with him from the loft in Beverlo, where Mark lives – and that was a very good decision.

Take have a look on the 2014 season:
1. National Yearling Ace Gouden Veer – with 5100213-13
2. National Young Ace Gouden Veer - 2090065-14
2. National Champion KBDB Yearlings Middle-distance
1. Provincial Champ KBDB Yearlings
3. Provincial Ace KBDB Young - 2090026-14

9. Olympiad Yearlings Belgium - 5100049-13

19 x 1 Prizes! No doubles!
13 x Top 50 in the National Races

The foundationcock LUCKY LUKE was not sold at the total sale, because he was 15 years old. After that all youngsters went directly to the breedingloft. At the moment still 20 are left and the last 2 years have shown how wise a decision it was!
