Combination van Doorn-van Wanrooij
In a beautiful location on the Poeldonksedijk in rural Den Dungen under the smoke of Den Bosch, Henri van Doorn lives with his wife Lucie and two sons Chris and Laurens. Nowadays known under the name of Van Doorn van Wanrooij, Henri only plays the juniors, because his function as loft companion at Comb. van Wanrooij requires the necessary time.
At home he had already had pigeons from the age of 8, but never thrown high. When Henri, together with his Lucie, went to the current residential location in 1993, she was the one who encouraged him to resume pigeon racing and to tackle it well. That is why we contacted Berry van de Brand from Boxtel. This has helped him very well and currently the vast majority of the colony consists of pigeons from Berry. These are mainly of the Schaerlaeckens type combined with pigeons from Cees Gijzen from Sint Willibrord. Every year 10 to 15 youngsters are brought to Berry and there is a good friendship between them.
In 2000 the first 3 pigeons have been brought from Ad Schaerlaeckens. Now there are still new Schaerlaeckens pigeons every year. The loft of pigeons consists of 90% Schaerlaeckens pigeons. These come from Berry van de Brand or directly from Ad Schaerlaeckens.
