EXPERIMENTATION


There has been much to learn in all aspects of the sport. For 41 years I have studied inbreeding, outbreeding, feeding, science and behaviour and conditioning of the pigeon, indeed every possible nuance of pigeons. It is said that I am a world authority on the subject by an American professor-I do not dispute it. For the studious person with a sharp mind, there is plenty to keep you going for 25 years. There is the art/science/philosophy and psychology to absorb and perhaps write about. Experimentation may yield insights and fresh awareness of the humble racing pigeon. The person will need to be focused, keen and enthusiastic to do this, and original and bright.

THE FOX IN MY GARDEN.


Old Reynard visits us each day. An omnivore it dines on all our scraps from the table. Habituated to man, foxy walks towards us and wants to follow us into the house. We love the mask, and singular presence of this wild, and beautiful being. All creatures great and small are welcomed in my ecosystem, with hand selected Homo sapiens. There is an archaic and primal connection between us, as we feel the intrinsic beauty of the animal, for we are all one life force. It is eternal, it is immortal. I am in my spiritual element, surrounded by nature, to which I will return.

THE SPRINT MANS MIND SET.


The drive is dominance and to prevail as no 1, as often as possible in as many races as possible. Linked to self-esteem, the power is generated for self-gratification and one upmanship. Sprint champions, establish methods and systems that will take them to the top. The fire and aggression is in the head, to motivate a team and work them as sprinters. Marathon men tend to be quieter, with patience and slow burning, long term objectives, in targeting the ultra -long races of the future. The distances find the birds that will perform under test conditions. Appropriate management and race preparation, may take the 2 types of men to the top, with years of practical application in race reality. Some fanciers and birds are versatile enough to produce results at all distances to 800 miles.

BICC RACING INTO IRELAND NOW


This is the most challenging idea and prospect in pigeon racing today. So far, a single bird has yet to be clocked in race time, although some valiant attempts have been made. It can be done. Required are ruthless dedication, method, system and focus on the objective. It will take the right man and the right bird, then the press will set the world of the imagination on fire. At Barcelona, I had the foresight to donate a thousand pound, solid silver trophy-The Jim Emerton Belief Trophy. Ireland represents the final bastion of purist pigeon racing difficulty. It will take organisation, initiative and finance. I wish Sid Collins and his cohorts all the best, along with keen and ambitious fanciers in Ireland, where crucial is to send the birds to test what they can do, as they will never realise dreams sat at home.
