Peter thanks most of his successes to the strain of pigeons he already created from his very beginning as a fancier. For years breeding was done well considered and because the results were fabulous so soon already, Peter knew directly in what mould he had to cast his strain of pigeons.
The Van de Merwe origin can be brought back to three extremely successful lines.
