Antonia is a pigeon that stands out in our loft. She is a daughter of Wondere Dirk of Anton Ruitenberg (Zwolle, NL) and has totally no (extreme) long distance in her pedigree. She was bought at the total sale of Mario Linsen, a local long distance fancier. The main reason for this purchase was the fact that she was sold at only a fraction of the prices that were paid for other children of Wondere Dirk at that time. I decided to cross her with our Polleke line, in the hope to breed some pigeons for the faster (extreme) long distance races. We have already had a lot of success with here descendants. They win early prizes from middle distance up to extreme long distance.
