SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM NANEZ FAMILY LOFTS

 

 

EVERY BREEDING SEASON FOR THE PAST SIX [6] YEARS,                 NANEZ FAMILY LOFTS HAS MADE AVAILABLE A SMALL CLUSTER OF PREMIUM PIGEONS FROM OUR VERY BEST OLD BREEDERS. THESE ARE DIRECT FROM THE BIRDS THAT HAVE CHANGED THE FACE & PACE OF ONE-LOFT RACING IN THE U.S. OVER THE PAST 7 YEARS.

APPROXIMATELY $1.3 MILLION HAS BEEN WON BY OUR BABIES OR OFFSPRING OF BREEDERS FROM US DURING THIS TIME. AND THIS, WITHOUT THE LUXURY OF BEING ABLE TO SEND A LOT OF BIRDS TO THE BIG RACES, AND VIRTUALLY NONE TO THE INTERNATIONAL RACES. WE BORROW EVERY PENNY THAT [WE] PAY FOR PERCH FEES AND ENTRY FEES EVERY YEAR IN ORDER TO ENTER THE RACES IN WHICH WE PARTICIPATE. THIS IS NOT ‘POOR-TALKING’, IT IS JUST TALKING. CONTRARY TO THE BELIEF OF MANY, WE DON’T OPERATE LIKE OTHER WELL-KNOWN ‘BIG LOFTS’ [whatever that means].

EVEN THE RACES WHERE YOU SEE 8-10-15 BIRDS IN OUR NAME, THERE ARE FINANCIAL PARTNERS BEHIND THE BIRDAGE [races like the HOOSIER, AIC, BLUE BUCKET, S.AFRICA…ETC]. NOT ALL OF US CAN ‘GO BIG’; SOMETIMES, WE JUST HAVE TO GO HOME OR PARTNER WITH MORE PROFOUND POCKETS OR BROADER BANK ACCOUNTS [IF ‘BIG’ MEANS ‘BIG MONEY’].

NOW, MANY OF YOU ARE AWARE THAT WE LOST AMONG DOZENS: CONSTANS, THE PERFECT STORM, EVER CONSTANT, KLEINE DIRKA….ETC. IN A DOUBLE-TRAGEDY INVOLVING A WEASEL AND A VACCINATION MISHAP [no, this is not a classical Monty Python skit]. IT HAS TAKEN ME A 53 WEEKS TO GARNER UP THE COURAGE TO BURY OUR DEAR LITTLE FRIENDS [AFTER A YEAR ON ICE, THEY WERE LAID TO REST TODAY BETWEEN THE APPLE TREES AND SCRAGGLY VINES OF OUR OVERGROWN VINEYARD ATOP THE MAIN HILL ON OUR PROPERTY].

OUR BEST OLD HENS LIKE ‘NICK’S GIRL’, ‘THE DISH’, ‘MS. RELIABLE, ‘ROYAL ROCKETTE’, ‘CAROLA’, ETC. HAVE EITHER STOPPED LAYING OR ARE ON THE VERGE OF WRAPPING UP THEIR BREEDING CAREERS. ‘DARK HORSE’, ‘AMBROSIA’, ‘KLEINE CONSTANT’, ‘DOUBLE BARREL DIRKA’, ‘IRON CONSTANTUTION’, ‘DARK FILLY,’ ‘SUPER CELL,’ ‘CONSTANS II’, AND THE LIKES, HAVE BEEN SOLD.

ALL TO SAY, AS THE YEARS TICK BY, THERE WILL BE FEWER AND FEWER OPPORTUNITIES TO PURCHASE DIRECT CHILDREN OF THESE LEGENDS AND/OR TOP ONE-LOFT BREEDERS.

IN 2011, AFTER BEING OUT OF THE SPORT FOR 17 YEARS,                NANEZ FAMILY LOFTS RETURNED TO THE GAME WITH A MARKED DISTINCTION. WE HAD BORROWED FUNDS IN ORDER TO PURCHASE 1,500 BREEDERS FROM OVER 300 LOFTS IN THE U.S. AND ABROAD. WE BOUGHT CHILDREN OF MANY OF THE TOP BREEDING PAIRS AND RECORD RACERS ON THE CONTINENT.  IN ONE PURCHASE ALONE, WE BROUGHT IN 57 DIRECT CHILDREN OF NATIONAL ACE PIGEONS AND AU HALL OF FAMERS. AFTER 24 MONTHS, WE HAD GIVEN AWAY OR ASSIGNED TO THE PUMPERS LOFT 1,440 OF THE 1,500. ON THE REMAINING 60, WE WERE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO BUILD A PINT-SIZED EMPIRE OF ONE-LOFT WINNERS. IN 2011, 109 BIRDS THAT WE SENT OUT ACCURED 87 TOP TEN POSITIONS IN ONE-LOFTS AND FUTURITIES.

SINCE THEN, OUR FAMILY OF BIRDS HAS AMASSED AN IMMENSE NUMBER OF TOP-TEN POSITIONS IN ONE-LOFTS FROM COAST TO COAST FOR US, AS WELL AS FOR A LONG LIST OF CLIENTS THAT HAS GROWN TO OVER 3,000.

AT TIMES, WE’VE BEEN CROWEDED OUT OR USHERED TO LOWER PAYING POSITIONS IN ONE-LOFTS BY 3,4,5, EVEN 10 BIRDS IN THE TOP THAT ARE ALL OUT OF OUR BLOODLINES- ENTERED BY CLIENTS. THIS, OF COURSE, SHOULD BE THE GOAL OF EVERY SELLER OF PIGEONS. AFTER ALL, ISN’T THIS THE TRUE LITMUS TEST AS TO WHETHER A LOFT IS SELLING EXCELLENT PIGEONS- NOT SECOND-CHOICES- AND TRULY ATTEMPTING TO ENRICHEN THE LOFTS OF THEIR CUSTOMERS?

THIS YEAR HAS BEEN A BIT RAGGED- AS PER OUR RESULTS- DUE TO A SIX-MONTH BOUT OF SICKNESSES, FOLLOWED BY MAJOR SURGERIES AND EXTENDED RECUPERATION. IN ADDITION, OF COURSE, THE ONE-LOFT SCENE HAS BEEN BRUTALIZED BY BIZARRE RETURNS & HORRIBLE INEXPLICABLE SMASH TOSSES [PER VIS-À-VIS ENCOUNTERS WITH ‘ATMOSPHERIC ANOMALIES’] AS WELL AS BEING PLAGUED BY PROFOUND LOSSES DUE TO LINGERING EFFECTS OF MYSTERIOUS SICKNESSES. ALL OF THIS HAS AFFECTED VIRTUALLY EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATES IN ONE-LOFT RACING.

NEVERTHELESS, IN 2017, THUS FAR, OUR LOFT HAS STILL MANAGED TO PLACE 56 TIMES IN THE TOP TEN OF ONE-LOFT COMPETITIONS.

*NOW, AT TIMES, WE ALL SEE BIRDS BEING OFFERED [some of which look like a hybrid between a goose and a pterodactyl] WHEREIN THE SELLER PONTIFICATES ABOUT THE MOTLEY LITTLE FELLOW IN THE PICTURE BECOMING YOUR NEXT FOUNDATION COCK. WELL, LET ME SAY: THE COCKS WE ARE OFFEREING THIS WEEK- IN MY ESTIMATION- ARE ALL FOUNDATION-WORTHY. THEY MAY NOT BE WORTH A NICKEL IN THE BREEDING LOFT; HOWEVER, I, PERSONALLY, WOULD FEEL CONFIDENT IN KEEPING THEM FOR OURSELVES AS THE BACKUPS FOR THEIR FAMOUS MOMS AND/OR DADS.

THAT IS EXACTLY HOW THESE HAVE STAYED WITH US FOR 4-5-6 YEARS. THEY HAVE MADE THE GRADE AGAIN AND AGAIN. THEY HAVE BEEN WEIGHED IN THE BALANCE, POURED THROUGH THE CRUCIBLE AND ENTERED THE SIFTING PROCESS MULTIPLE TIMES. WHEN I WENT TO CHOOSE BIRDS FOR THIS WEEK’S AUCTION, I DID NOT PLACE EQUALLY BRED BIRDS IN THE BASKET WHICH LACKED IN VERITABLY PERFECT CONFIRMATION. I WANTED EACH OF THESE TO EXHIBIT THE ‘WOW’ FACTOR. I DON’T MIND BREEDING OUT OF THE GANGLY SIBLINGS, BUT I KNOW THAT MOST OTHERS ARE NOT HAPPY WHEN UPON OPENING THE SHIPPING BOX, THE ‘WOW’ MEANS: ‘WOW’ I PAID WHAT FOR THIS BIRD?? WE WANT YOUR ‘WOW’ TO MEAN: ‘WOW’, THIS IS SPECIAL!

BASED ON THIS WEEK’S RESULTS ON THE AUCTION, I WILL DETERMINE WHETHER WE WILL PLACE ANY OTHERS UP IN THE NEXT 2-3 WEEKS. THESE BIRDS ARE IMPRESSIVE AND IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO ME THAT- THOUGH THEY MAY GO FOR PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR- THAT WILL HAPPEN ONLY ONCE.

THE PEACE OF MIND THAT GOES HAND IN HAND WITH HAVING BIRDS OF EXTRAORDINARY QUALITY, BRED THE WAYS THESE ARE, TO TAKE THE PLACE OF THEIR LARGER-THAN-LIFE PARENTS- THIS PEACE IS TOO PRECIOUS TO CAST TO THE WIND FOR FEW ‘BANTAM’ BIDS. THIS MAY SOUND, ARROGANT. I DON’T MEAN IT TO COME ACROSS THAT WAY. I TRUST WE ALL KNOW HOW DIFFICULT IT IS TO FIND PREPOTENT PIGEONS AND OFFSPRING THAT WILL PERPETUATE A WINNING LINE. THESE PARTICULAR PIGEONS ARE CLOSE ENOUGH TO THAT STANDARD THAT I’VE FELT SECURE IN PUTTING THEM BACK FOR OURSELVES AND EQUALLY NERVOUS ABOUT SENDING THEM AWAY TO OTHER LOFTS. NEVERTHELESS, THEY NEED TO BE UTILIZED, SO WE PRESENT THEM FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.
