Familie Toom – Alblasserdam
The Familie (family) Toom consists of father Bart, his son Sebastiaan and Sebastiaan’s wife Heleen Toom.
Their base pigeons are mainly from Jan & Hanne Sas from Vosselaar in Belgium and a few toppers from Tim Hage (Woerden, The Netherlands). Some years ago on the advice of friend Jan van Wanrooy, Bart & Sebastiaan knocked at the door of Jan & Hanne Sas who have built their loft with pigeons from only the best of the best from the international marathon champions Kurvers-de Weerd (Lei Kurvers-Henk de Weerd).
Bart has made a golden purchase there about ten years ago, because from the ten pigeons they bought….three were phenomenal! Untill now, it were these three pigeons which built the foundation of the great successes and victories of the Familie Toom.
It was the superb breedingcouple MESSI (grandson of the foundation breedingcock “874” from Lei Kurvers) x COBY (granddaughter of the 2nd National Barcelona in 2005) and the nestbrother of MESSI who made the Familie Toom extremely succesful at both the NPO races (afternoon releases) as well as the international Marathon classics (morning releases). It is hard to imagine but very true that almost all descendants from the Family Toom’s Golden Breeding couple are good pigeons!!
Direct offspring of the before mentioned super breedingcouple win: 1, 1, 6, 8, 11, 13, 14, 17, 25, 26, 26, 26, 28, 30, 38, 39, 40, 51, 51, 60, 71, 93 National (Sector 2 and/or ZLU) and 1st National Acepigeon Agen ZLU 16-17-18, 4th National Acepigeon Sint Vincent ZLU 14-15-16 and 6th National Acepigeon Barcelona 15-16-17!!
