Sandstrom Brothers Loft
- has been successfully competing in the most difficult one loft
races across the country for over 10 years. Their breeding pairs have been
carefully selected based on performance in one loft/futurity races. They
have 19 main breeding pairs and send out every youngster bred from the
1st, 2nd, and 3rd rounds. This high level of competition has helped them
create a world class family of pigeons. Their families of pigeons are Jan
Aarden based; which began with their foundation Jan Aarden cock –
“De Arden”. “De Arden” was bred by Crazy Al; his
parents were acquired from Robert Venus – ‘De Dolle’ line. Through careful
selection and trial breeding, the Sandstrom Brothers have crossed
in some of the most prolific strains that are winning today. They have
achieved outstanding results with the addition of the “Alfons Klaas”
