The ECBU Combine race from Touwsriver 735km was a very tough race. Only 3 birds in the Border Homing Union made it on the day and Gavin had 2 of the 3. Both of them from his LINCOIN line.
Gavin took 1st and 2nd club, 1st and 3rd Combine and 1st and 3rd BHU. Winning speed 1050mpm. He also won 1st ECBU Combine and considers this win one of his finest to date.
Gavin’s Combine winner is BORDER 17/3231. Her father is BORDER 15/71925 (super racer and grandson of LINCOIN – PART 2) and her mother is from the Janssen Wegge lines of Eben Hugo crossed with a daughter of KANNIBAAL BLIKSEM of Bertus. 3231 showed a lot of promise before winning the ECBU Combine with a 4th club, 8th Combine and 8th BHU from Greytown 503km 1450mpm earlier in the season.
The hen that was 2nd club and 3rd Union is BORDER 17/3220, a daughter of GPU 13/18533 (sister of LINCOIN – refer to PART 2).
Gavin with 3231.
