Jacob Poortvliet

The Most Exciting Sprint/Middle Distance Family to come to the UK for years

Based on performance Jacob Poortvliet is something special and is without the slightest doubt a contender for one of Europe's TOP sprint/middle distance lofts. Jacob races to the original loft of the now globally famous Pieter Veenstra and races in the same competitions and more than holds is own. Jacob is in the BIG league!! The Poortvliet family base breeding is principally the lines of Koopman’s Branco, Mr Emerveen, Dirky (sire of Veenstra’s Da Vinci . . . sire of Dolce Vita) aso. Additionally his family is greatly influenced by Marijk Vink’s Reza & Farah Diba, winners and breeders of winners against 10’s of thousands. The birds of Pieter Veenstra, Heremans Cuesters, Dirk van Dyck, De Beek-Baetens are also found in copious quatities. Jacob’s no.1 pigeon is the sensational Magic Wonder 1st International no.1 pigeon of Europe. Magic Wonder is a prime example of Jacob’s clever use of TOP local lofts, her
sire 100% Koopman, Branco, Kleine Dirk & Amore (Amore & Kleine Dirk are g.parents to Jan Hooyman’s young wonder Harry), whilst the dam is a combination of Wonderboy & Golden Girl sister to Marijke Vink’s Reza & Farah Diba.

Jules Severi

Louella's Brand new Black Huyskens - Van Riels

I first visited Jules Severi (pronounced Say-vor-rey) in 2006 and introduced some most impressive pigeons with a view to promoting them as a viable alternative to our already very successful middle distance families that included Gaby Vandenabeele, Flor Engels & Michel Vanlint. A few months later an opportunity arose to purchase Jules’ entire loft of pigeons. 

The rest is history, the complete collection were purchased by me for Louella. However, because Jules’ is a genuine small team player of only 7 stock pairs, 17 widowers & 30 young birds, there were not, on continental standards, that many to purchase ! This is always a good thing, because to compete at the TOP as Jules did every pigeon had to earn it’s corn.

The Severi’s don’t have long pedigree’s, to use Jules’ own words, ‘don’t ask me about pedigree ( I remember Charel Janssen saying the same), I am not so concerned with these things’. ‘Pigeon racing for me is obtaining good results with my 17 widowers and 30 young birds’. The family has been maintained in it’s purity since the late 1950’s.

The Jules Severi family is indeed a rarity, founded completely on the loft of Huysken - Van Riel a name that is revered as one of the greatest in the history of pigeon sport. If you are looking for pigeons with long lenghthy pedigrees, these are not for you, on the other hand if you are genuine racing fancier that is interested in flying good pigeons, not paper, it might be worth your time to take a second look.

Louella Veenstra

Supreme Dutch Sprint/Middle Distance Strain

Without the slightest doubt, one of the BEST colonies that can be found in Europe is Pieter Veenstra, a loft of 5 different 1st National ACE pigeons WHZB, 4 different Olympiad winners - All of the aforementioned are bred through 2 basic stock birds, namely Mr Blue & Dirky.

Pieter Veenstra pigeons are globally recognized as some of the most successful for sprint and middle distance racing, a fact that is endorsed by the astronomical sums of money his pigeons fetch on the open market, with the children & g.children of Mr Blue & Dirky the most valuable & highly prized.

Louella has one of the most important collections of Pieter Veenstra pigeons that includes direct stock from Mr Blue, Dirky, Sissy, Prima Donna, Oliver, Zuster Special Blue, Darryl (Brth to Dirky) aso.

First introduced in 1952 and still as popular as ever. Built on originals first purchased from Johnny Kirkpatrick in 1952 they have become a firm favoriet for middle & long distance fanciers. In 2010 a Louella bred Kirkpatrick wins 2nd Open BICC ??? . Although many years gone, few families can claim to have the blue blooded heritage of
ours, the lines of; Solway King, Stranraer Simon, Jubilee Victor, Nans Pride, Man Friday, Double Top, the Kings Cup or Glennifer Gold Globe winners. Additionally such outstanding good winners as Stan The Man, Nevers Hen, Worley Bird, Dream Come True, Silver Supreme were all brought in.

Maarten Vinkenborg

Jan Aarden Marathon Breeder


There are many factors to consider when bringing in new stock and for Louella one of the most important is do they win for others as well as the creator of the strain. It was clear that most of Maarten’s outstanding racing STARS were invariably bred through his World famous Rode Kramers a 75% Jan Theelen 25% Kuypers cock - not only did this pigeon fill Maarten’s loft full of winners but very many others across Europe.

Such lofts C. vd Laan, Ewout vd. Weijden, Fam. Van Houten, Ton Verteleman, Herman Brinkmann, Reedijk-Jongekrig, G. Vedder, Batenburg, H & R Wijnands, Danny Vangende, Gebr. Hagens, Pros Roosen, Wim van der Velden, aso are just a few to have won 1st Open National or 1st International with lines of Super '508 of Jan Theelan but amongst these famous names there are none more famous throughout Holland than Maarten Vinkenborg - everyone respects the man and his family of 'die hard' racers that are primarily bred around the incredible Rode Kramers which is inbred & line bred to Super '508.

Louella have at stock 5 sons & daughters of the fabulous Rode Kramers, these together with Maarten, Sylvia, Infinite Spirit & La Rosa Bonita are the foundation of the family of pigeons we are in a position to offer to the fancy now. The majority are of medium build, slightly longer cast, with soft supple feather and those character eyes. Bred for the job they make winning the longer Classics so much easier, quick enough to win at 450mls and gutsy enough to go right through to 700mls. or more.
