Milos was a special bird in every way. He raced very well, also on the shorter races he was almost always the first in the loft. His greatest achievement was a 1st NPO Montauban against 1,862 pigeons, the special thing about this was that he was the only pigeon from North Holland that arrived in the evening (at 10.28 pm). It was on one of the shortest distances, but more pigeons were stationed there that had a chance.
Milos was responsible for a large part of all our successes and in many other lofts. For example, Milos has produced 3 generations of international ace pigeons in his own loft. All 3 of these pigeons are hens in 3 successive generations. Many children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are leading (inter)nationally.
In the night of April 9 2022, peacefully on his nest, our Milos passed away. He was twenty years and two months old. A very respectable age for a pigeon. He has meant a lot to us. “The old boss” buddy Peter always called him.
