holding "Tomba" Myself holding "Dream

dollars between them both. I don't think even Clint Eastwood
could have matched that one.
that I am now living in Texas, I decided to drop in on a neighbor
and check out my competition, ha ha! :-)
estate and breeding stud Oakhaven stud, in visiting with Chris Peeman,
I found Chris to a very down to earth kind of guy, felt like I was
back home just hanging out with one of the lads.
visit to Oak Haven Farm was an experience in itself, a beautifully
tranquil located breeding stud set in the hart of the Texas countryside
housing some of the finest record winning cocks in the world.
quality and caliber of the birds speak for themselves, in handling
all the major key birds at OHF they are all very different in type
and all having that something special about them that makes a good
bird stand right out among the rest, believe me? No, I didn't think
so. I read the catalogue before visiting, I'm not that good at predictions.
anyway, all superior athletes in their own right, all carrying super
widowhood characteristics and temperaments.
you visit a stud that holds within its walls so many world and national
award winning champions, whether you are a back garden flyer or
a national breeding stud, whether you are a rookie or claim you
are the pigeon racing book of knowledge, such a visit can put a
lot of unanswered questions to rest, a big question among many of
the worlds fanciers which I hear quite a lot is. (What does a real
champion bird handle like?)
What does a real champion bird handle like?
A. Champions come
in all shapes and sizes. Long casted, small, apple bodied and for
all of you that believe that a deep keeled birds and birds with
dings and dents in their keels should be put in the bin... Think
again ...big mistake! . Like many fortunate fanciers that visit
the noted world champion lofts and handle the goods, they to, can
tell you that many of the worlds top champions come in all shapes
and sizes and to think that a deep keeled bird is a handicap ...
all I can say is thank again!
Did I have a favorite at OHF?
A. No, they were all
very unique superior athletes, in anyway, who am I to judge sections
filled wiith world record and national winning champions, who wouldn't
be proud to own a team of widowhood cocks bred down from these super
class athletic cocks.
What did you notice about their eyes?
A. I noticed like most pigeons,
they all had two eyes! I don't believe in eyesign, never have never
will, it's an idiotic gesture to even think that the eye of a bird
governs how good or bad bird can produce or perform, to each his
own i guess when it comes to eyesign.
that note, a big thank you to Chris Peeman for his kind hospitality
in showing me and my family around the wonderful OHF national breeding
stud. Amazing Experience! , Amazing Birds!
