R. & S. Fokkinga, Harkema (The Netherlands)

This father and son combination consists of 65 years old Sietse Fokkinga, international driver, that means Sietse is not much at home during the week and son Ronald Fokkinga, a 30 years old bricklayer of profession. Ronald takes the full care of the pigeons during the week. But whenever his dad is not on the road, Sietse will assists his son as he is as driven and fanatic fanatic with the pigeons as Ronald. The father and son combination form a very good team since 2005. Sietse already previously played with pigeons under his own and since they do things together they are fanciers to always keep an eye on. They simply belong to a big group of really good pigeon fanciers and champs in the Frisian province.

Ronald got infected with the “pigeon virus” when he was a teenager from none other than Pieter Veenstra back in 2004. At that time Ronald Fokkinga worked for Pieter Veenstra in his construction company. In the next school holidays Ronald helped Pieter in the construction company again and then came the first direct Veenstra pigeons to Harkema. Nowadays it still is the old succesful strain of Veenstra’s super pigeons which bring the many successes of R. & S. Fokkinga!

In the year 2008 there were a number of eggs from Pieter Veenstra’s very best pigeons going to the loft of Ronald and Sietse Fokkinga. And one of the youngsters of those precious eggs was the worldfamous “Seiko” !!

A direct daughter of this wonderbreeder is “Olympic Esmee” from Tjeerd & Jouke Elzinga, but only a few fanciers know that she was born at the loft of R. & S. Fokkinga. In 2014 “Olympic Esmee” became the 1st Acepigeon Allround in the W.H.Z.B.-T.B.O.T.B. competition and she was the best Long Distance pigeon of The Netherlands that year. In 2015 she was an Olympic pigeon Allround at the Olympiad in Budapest. The super hen “Olympic Esmee”, a gift of Ronald Fokkinga to his good friend Jouke, brought worldfame to the superchamps T. & J. Elzinga from Harkema. Nowadays “Olympic Esmee” is the strong foundation under their ongoing successtory!

One will find the best of the best of Pieter Veenstra and T. & J. Elzinga at the loft of Ronald and Sietse Fokkinga. Due to their lack of commercial ambition, not many people from outside the Frisian provincial border will know them. But they the owners of a precious collection of real superpigeons!

After the recent record auctions of Pieter Veenstra, they are probably one of the greatest treasure holders of the Pieter Veenstra pigeons in the world!!
