Grandsire of Le Mans

Bred by Strawbridge & Williams


Van Geel and Wim Muller Aardens are bred specifically for the distance and extreme distance with our Aardens winning at 600+ miles but these birds will win at the sprint if the conditions favour them.

We’ve had the Aardens since the late 1980’s and from the time we introduced them into the loft they have won at the distance but don’t write them off over short distance if it’s a tough one. I’ve just bought back one of our own birds Solwayview Boy and was 1st Open National from 534 miles miles flying into Scotland, as a two year old.  They have won at every level of competition including 1st Open National! Not much more you can ask of a strain! We only keep around 30 pairs, so for these achievements to have come from such a small group of pigeons is outstanding.

If you need to fly the distance, then these are the birds with the endurance to do that. We have the Champions at stock to name a few Champion Seren Eleven, Solwayview Boy, etc. we also have sons, daughters, brothers, sisters to the Champions. These are kept as closely inbred to the top Federation, Combine and National winners and only birds on the day.
