Marathon Pigeons

Breeding Centre > Marathon pigeons

The inheritance of the ‘Oude Kruk’

The foundation for the marathon pigeons at the breeding centre was laid with OUDE
KRUK, a 100% Aarden cock from Gerard v/d Kruk (Lepelstraat, NL), which is not
surprising, given the enormous contribution Piet made to the creation of Jan Aarden
strain. OUDE KRUK, with ring number NL80-8016163, developed into an exceptional
breeder. He is the father, grandfather, and great-grandfather of no less than six
national winners, and several national ace pigeons.

An excellent move was made by Piet and Henk de Weerd, when they purchased SHERPA
TENSING with ring number NL83-865526, which made Van Noordenne and Son in
Hardinxveld-Giessendam world famous in 1986 by winning 1st National Barcelona and 60th
National St. Vincent. This cock, bred by Wim van Leeuwen from the best lineages of Jan
Aarden and the Kuypers Brothers, turned out to be a super breeder, that became father
and grandfather of three national winners, and ten national top-5 rankings. Without any
doubt, the BUFFEL with ring number NL89-1479431, is the best breeding son of SHERPA
TENSING. The BUFFEL was bred by Piet and Henk from SHERPA TENSING x BONTE
KOE, and is a 100% Aarden pigeon, that became father and grandfather of 1st International
Perpignan hens., 1st National Dax, 2nd National Dax, 3rd National Perpignan, 3rd National
Perpignan, 4th National Barcelona, 4th National Narbonne, 5th National Dax, 5th National
San Sebastian, and many more.
