Jos Joosen - 1st National Montelimar 6.713 pigeons!


It was a pleasure for us to see our friend from Brecht - Jos Joosen - as nationalwinner from Montelimar.
Several visits at his lofts during the years have given us the belief in the pigeons of Jos Joosen, so we knew it was only a matter of time before he would strike again. It is always a pleasure to visit him and his wife Gerda - such a friendly couple - always interested to be polite and honest to us. And his pigeons have given very good results in many places in the world.

The winner of this Montelimar flight was a "true Joosen" with the "Bonga"-lines in both parents as you can see on the pedigree below.

The story, foundation and results
