Chris Peeman holding "Tomba" Myself holding "Dream Boy" & "Euro Star" a fistful of $125,000.00 dollars between them both. I don't think even Clint Eastwood could have matched that one.

Being that I am now living in Texas, I decided to drop in on a neighbor and check out my competition, ha ha! :-)

The elegant 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.

The 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.

The 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.

When 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?)

Q. 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!

Q. 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.

Q. 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.

On 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!
