New Year beginnings

Apr
19

Been out of the loop for a little while due to the fact that my brother was diagnosed with a brain tumor and died on March 22, 2016. The family emergency put me out of the loop for a few months and now I'm just getting back to my work and pigeon matters. I will be posting a few things for sale in the near future. At the moment I have a book entitled "Breeding Better Pigeons" by G. H. T. Stovin published in 1964 that is a must for any pigeon breeder. I have an extra copy in GREAT condition and will let it go postage paid throughout North America for $50. postage paid.

A bit of nostalgia, Louisville, KY

Dec

Last night I was reading Nino's nostalgic post that reminded me of a photo that I just came across yesterday. I've been sorting and organizing lately and stumbled across these three fellas. I was having a senior moment and the location escaped me for a time before I recalled the location that brought these three together. I think it was the Louisville Young Bird show around 20 years ago (Oct 1997).

The birds behind the hours

Dec
09

The other day I posted some very interesting information about Wilf Lovatt who was the first man to reach 20 hours. However, David Fuller brought to my attention that there was certainly a lot more information regarding this man's birds and his wonderful times. According to the obituaries of Albert Hartshorne, Wilf had flown some birds that were bred by Albert. The obituary stated: "Albert supplied Wilf with a lot of pigeons that he flew big times with, including one in the 20 hour kit". This is not the first time this sort of arrangement has existed and this is obviously something that often works.
