Sablon Pair List



Sablon Breeding Pairs 
Spring Sablon Ad 
Below are McLaughlin Lofts breeding pairs of De Rauw Sablon and Marcel Aelbrecht pigeons. As you know the family is one and the same. The pairs are in no particular order. 

There may not be a better group of Sablon breeders anywhere in the world.  
Following the 14 pairs are three extra hens.  At the very bottom I added the racing and breeding records of the most famous pigeons of the family.  This list of National Awards and breeding results barely scratches the surface of exceptional worldwide accomplishments.  

Enjoy the breeding list.  I certainly enjoyed assembling it. Please let me know if I can answer any questions on these spectacular racing pigeons. Frank@McLaughlinLofts.com
