Welcome we are the family Skovbo.
We are racing pigeons in Denmark as a family hobby, and trying to advertise the sport in the best possible way here in our country to encourage newcomers to our amazing hobby/sport.
The family is Christina(the Mother 33 years old) Liv(5 years old) Magnus (7 years old) Christian (12 years old) and Mark( the father 36 years old) to advertise the sport, we have a facebook page, please visit if you want too :-). the idea of making such a facebook page, was to let “normal” people to get a view on what pigeon racing and keeping is, and how fascinating our beloved sport can be.
https://www.facebook.com/skovboduer/ there is alot of photos from our daily routines etc.
As a profession i am working as a pigeon photographer at www.mc-auctions.com, and i am also designing websites mostly websites for other fanchiers.
Besides that, we will like to show our own birds, a family i have worked with since my start in the sport back in 1999, the base originates back to “Uno” (Verstraete) and to make our family as fast as possible, we breed hens of todays fastests lines into our family.
At the moment this is mostly birds of Engels, Geerinckx, Wouwer, Will & Falco Ebben, Stabel and Son and Van Den Bulck origin.
My number one goal with this hobby, is to make my family the fastest on earth, will I succeed? probably not 🙂 but I will try and the breeding of pigeons is what I love the most, racing is second for me no doubt about that, but learning how genes is working is of great interest to me, and they off course have to be tested.
In 2015 a hen from us became 2 Nat. ace small middle distance (raced in another loft) and in the winter 2016 she was sold to Xavier Verstraete, she raced 12x1 club. and is already mother and grandmother to several winners. She is a cousin to our own base breeder of today “Maestro 43”
In 2019 we had the privilegie that a cock from our origin became 1 National ace long distance here in Denmark.
He is a son from a cousin of “Maestro 43”
