and Base Bloodlines
How it started
Ally started with pigeon racing in 1984. He knew that success in pigeon racing
could only be achieved by racing with talented pigeons. He did not have to go
far to search for them. Gaby Vandenabeele and Gilbert
Van Parijs belonged to the Belgian top racers and
live only a few kilometers away… So the first pigeons were bought there. When
Van Parijs in the mid 80’s became the loft manager of
the top colony Norman N & F (Westkapelle), some pigeons, direct out of the best Norman
breeders, came to the loft of Norbert Ally as well.
- From these early pigeons, the Vandenabeele cock ‘Artiest’ (090/84, from Artiest
252/81 x Orleanske 82) was the one the best
performers. The best breeding couple in the early years was formed by that
“Artiest” coupled with the Vandenabeele hen
“Kim” (023/88, grandd. ‘Kleinen’
and ‘Favori’). They became the parents of the
first top pigeon of the loft, “the Favoriet”.
Unfortunately the “Favoriet” got lost. His
younger brother ‘Stefan’ (447/93) performed also so well as a youngster,
so that Norbert put him immediately on the breeding loft, hoping that he
could replace his father, who was getting older. ‘Stefan’ did not
disappoint his owner and became father to:
- From the early Norman pigeons
(combination ‘son Blitz’ x ‘daughter Tarzan’), Norbert Ally bread a nice
red cock (858/85) which was put immediately on the breeding loft. In the
early 90’s the perfect match for the “858/85” was found in the Vandenabeele hen “Vuilke”
(078/84). In the years ’92-’94 several top pigeons were born from the pair
“858/85” x “Vuilke”:
- ‘Het goed
zeemke’ (176/92) was also a very good racer as
a youngster (at Norbert Ally, hens are only raced as youngsters). She is
also an important breeding hen. She is e.g. the mother (coupled with
‘Stefan) to ‘Ullrich’ (see above).
The 90 ‘s
More direct input from the loft Gaby Vandenabeele (Dentergem)
In the late
80’s, early 90’s Norbert Ally reinforced his loft every year with pigeons
directly from the loft of maestro Gaby Vandenabeele.
Direct children of ‘Kleinen’, ‘Wittenbuik’,
‘Playboy’, ‘Pipo’, ‘Genaaide’,
‘Limoges’, ‘Turbo’, ‘Ronker’, ‘Kolonel’
were put on the breeding loft.
- The ‘Son Kleinen’
(085/88) became the father of the main stock mother of the loft Ally: ‘Brave’ (420/93). As a youngster ‘Brave’ won 3
first prices. The mother of ‘Brave’ was a hen from the loft Robert Willequet (dauchter topracer “Vooruit”).
'Steffie' is mother
to the topracers and topbreeders:
'Federer' (674/04), 'Boris' (778/04), 'Rafaël'
- 'Federer' is one of the
actual topbreeders since he is father to
'Andy' (538/10), 'Federer Talent' (864/11), 'Novak' (625/10) and
grandfather to the young golden star 'Gouda'.
'Gouda' was probably the best middle distance youngbird
of Belgium in 2012.
- 'Boris' became father to the
national winner Chateauroux 2010 at Sierens-Vandenbroucke
(fastest bird of 39,908 birds).
’ (bred together with
in combination with the last daughter of
Ally’s stock pair I: ‘moeder Steffie’
(466/02). She is in fact very closly related to “Schumi”. Many Children of the golden pair ‘Andre’ x ‘Steffie’ were absolute top winners on heavy middle distance
and 1-day national long distance races: ‘Federer’ (674/04), ‘Boris’
(778/04), ‘Rafaël’ (818/05), ‘Anastasia’ (703/05), …
Other successful input
Chateauroux’ is also, in combination with mother ‘Brave’, father to ‘schoon Willequetje’ (591/00). She
is mother to one of the very best Ally-racing pigeons: the ‘super 114’ (114/06).
The last decade
direct input from the loft Gaby Vandenabeele (Dentergem)
the loft N&F Norman (Westkapelle)
‘Daughter Nicolas’ (502/08). Is mother to ‘Jonge
Ronaldo’ (085/09) and also (in pairing with 'Federer) to the topracers 'Andy' (538/10) and 'Federer Talent' (864/11).
the Ace Pigeon Loft of Erik Limbourg (Brussegem)
The ‘son Blue Ace’ of Erik Limbourg
(314/08) has developed in very little time the status as ‘one of the most
dominant breeders of the actual loft’. In pairing with at least five different
hens he became father of very good racing cocks. The ‘Libourne’ (553/10) won the 2° Nat. Libourne on 8269 birds in very hard weather conditions. In
the same year (2011) he won topprices from the races
of ‘Narbonne’ and ‘Chateauroux’. So he became 6° prov
ace pigeon KBDB yearlings 2011. Mother to ‘Libourne’
is a direct daughter to ‘Geronimo’, the
most important pigeon of the loft Houfflijn P &
